Special Session on


hosted by 23rd Euromicro International Conference on Parallel,
Distributed, and Network-Based Processing (PDP) held in Turku, Finland,
March 4-6 2015


Call For Papers
The computational approach to biology is dealing with an enormous
availability of data and an extreme complexity in the modelling and
analysis of life systems. Both these issues make the scaling-up promise
of High Performance Computing extremely appealing. Currently, the
possibility of parallelising algorithms and analysis techniques
exploiting the various HPC emerging frameworks is receiving a lot of
interest. Examples include the porting of legacy applications to
clusters, e.g. those for genome analysis, and the use of distributed
technologies, cloud computing, on-chip supercomputing, GPGPUs, and
massively parallel architectures for the treatment of high-throughput
data-sets (e.g. Xeon Phi implementations). Arguably, HPC will turn out
to be an unifying aspect of the future integration of Bioinformatics,
Systems and Synthetic Biology.

The aim of this special session is to present the latest efforts in HP
Computational Biology and to foster the integration of researchers
interested in HPC and Computational Biology.

Examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to, HPC
experiences in:

- Algorithms for genomics and proteomics
- DNA assembly and mapping
- Bio-Molecular sequence analysis
- Gene identification and annotation
- SNP analysis and classification
- Differential gene expression analysis and clustering techniques
- Phylogeny reconstruction algorithms
- Biological databases for big data management
- Modelling and simulation of biological systems
- Automated verification in Computational Biology
- Virtual labs and experiments
- HPC-based approaches in Synthetic Biology
- DNA-based biological circuits simulations
- Modelling of structural protein properties
- Parallel architectures for Computational Biology
- System infrastructure for high throughput analysis


Important dates

Paper submission: 25th Aug. 2014
Acceptance notification: 25th Oct. 2014
Camera ready due: 10th Nov. 2014
Conference: 4th - 6th Mar 2015


Submission guidelines

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in
the IEEE Conference proceedings format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt).
Double-bind review: the first page of the paper should contain only the
title and abstract; in the reference list, references to the authors'
own work should appear as "omitted for blind review" entries. Manuscript


Proceedings will be published by the Conference Publishing Services
(CPS) in the same volume of the main track. Authors of accepted papers
are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference.
Conference proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in Xplore and the
CSDL, and for indexing, among others, to DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and
ISI Web of Knowledge.
