In the last 20 years, computational methods have become an important part of
developing emerging technologies for the field of bioinformatics and
biomedicine. Research areas such as biomodelling, molecular dynamics,
genomics, neuroscience, cancer models, evolutionary biology, medical
biology, biochemistry, biophysics, biotechnology, cell biology,
nanobiotechnology, biological engineering, pharmacology, genetics therapy,
or automatic diagnosis, rely heavily on large scale computational resources
as they need to manage Tbytes or Pbytes of data with large-scale structural
and functional relationships, TFlops or PFlops of computing power for
simulating highly complex models, or many-task processes and workflows for
processing and analyzing data.As applications require more and more
computational resources every day in order to increase the knowledge of
biological and health processes, bio disciplines create new challenges of
scale for computation, storage, and interpretation of petascale data that
are difficult to solve with single clusters. Cloud computing has the
potential to help solve these problems by offering a utility model based on
highly flexible computing and storage capabilities and abstraction layers
that allows overcoming many of the constraints present in dedicated systems.
It may also increase research productivity by allowing sharing applications,
tools, and algorithms in an easy way.The aim of the workshop is to promote
the synergies of the cloud computing and bio communities by exploring
applications developed in clouds, cloud systems enhancements for bio, and
new trends and needs shared between both communities. Thus, this workshop
will feature articles that discuss the application of cloud computing to
bioinformatics and biomedicine, including solutions to area problems and
architectural adaptation of cloud systems to fit those problems.
Areas of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to:-
Cloud-based bioinformatics applications- Cloud-based biomedicine
applications- Cloud-based application in public health systems- Modeling and
simulation of complex biological processes- Genomics and Molecular Structure
evolution- Molecular Dynamics- Data intensive biomedical applications-

Authors are invited to submit papers electronically in PDF format. Submitted
manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed 10
letter-size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using
the IEEE format for conference proceedings. Submissions not conforming to
these guidelines may be returned without review. Authors should make sure
that their file will print on a printer that uses letter-size (8.5 x 11)
paper. The official language of the conference is English. All manuscripts
will be reviewed and will be judged on correctness, originality, technical
strength, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance
to the conference attendees.Paper submissions are limited to 10 pages in
2-column IEEE format including all figures and references. Submitted
manuscripts exceeding this limit will be returned without review. For the
final camera-ready version, authors with accepted papers may purchase
additional pages at the following rates: 100 USD for each of the first two
additional pages; 200 USD for each of the third and fourth additional
pages.The paper submission online system is open:
