Call for Papers:

Workshop on Parallelism in Bioinformatics

Final Submission Deadline
April 26, 2017

5th International Workshop on Parallelism in Bioinformatics (PBio 2017)
in conjunction with ICA3PP 2017
Helsinki, Finland
August 21-23, 2017

Submission Deadline: April 26, 2017

The goal of PBio is to bring together researchers in the fields of Parallelism and Bioinformatics, hence establishing a forum for discussing challenges, new ideas, results, applications, and future directions. We seek original, high-quality research papers, clearly focused on the application of Parallelism to any possible Bioinformatics problem. In particular, contributions are solicited on, but are not limited to, the following topics:

– Parallel and distributed algorithms in Bioinformatics
– Workload partitioning strategies in Bioinformatics
– Memory-efficient algorithms in Bioinformatics
– Hardware accelerators (GPUs, FPGAs, etc.) in Bioinformatics
– Heterogeneous computing in Bioinformatics
– Parallel tools and applications in Bioinformatics
– Data-intensive Bioinformatics (including Big Data storage and processing)
– Multicore computing in Bioinformatics
– Multithreaded computing in Bioinformatics
– Cluster computing in Bioinformatics
– Supercomputing in Bioinformatics
– Cloud/Grid/P2P computing in Bioinformatics
– Mobile computing in Bioinformatics.
– Emerging parallel programming models in Bioinformatics
– Parallel performance evaluation, analysis, and optimization in Bioinformatics
– Parallel visualization, modelling, simulation, and exploration in Bioinformatics

The authors of the best workshop papers, accepted and presented in PBio 2017, will be invited to submit properly extended and improved versions of their papers to a special issue in the Journal of Computational Biology.
