Call For Papers

*** Workshop on Parallel Computational Biology ***
*** September 8-11, 2013, Warsaw, Poland ***
*** ***

Bioinformatics is the science of managing, mining, and extracting knowledge
from biological data. Since the last PBC workshop in 2011 the field has
witnessed two growing paradigm shifts: improved third generation sequencing
technology and cloud computing. Because of the flood of digital biological data
in many more institutions, application of diverse HPC techniques to solve
bioinformatics problems has become even more crucial to the success of the

The goal of this Workshop is to present the latest research in high-performance
computing applied to bioinformatics. We are especially interested in parallel
and distributed algorithms, memory efficient algorithms, and design of
high-performance software for clusters, grids and clouds. Submission of
articles dealing with parallelization of applications on multi-/many-core,
massively parallel systems, accelerator architectures and large distributed
systems are specifically encouraged. Topics of interest include but are not
limited to:

* Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)
* Bioinformatics databases
* Computational genomics, metagenomics and proteomics
* Short-read assembly, clustering, and mapping
* Gene expression analysis
* Molecular sequence analysis
* Phylogeny reconstruction algorithms
* Protein structure prediction and modeling
* Parallel algorithms for biological analysis
* Parallel architectures for biological applications
* System tools that support large-scale high-performance bio-computing

The PBC Workshop ( will be held in conjunction with the
Tenth International Conference on Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics
PPAM 2013, Warsaw, Poland, September 8-13, 2013 (

--- Paper Submission and Publication ---

The workshop will consist of dedicated sessions containing selected
papers. Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their originality,
scientific merit and relevance to the Workshop topics. Papers presented during
the workshop will be included into the proceedings of PPAM and published after
the conference by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series.

The only allowed paper format is Springer LaTeX style. To ensure reasonable
quality and consistency of preparation, please be sure to adhere closely to the
LNCS Author and Volume Editor Instructions. All papers should be prepared as a
PDF or PS file, and should be submitted using the Paper Submission link. Papers
should not exceed 10 pages.
