******************************************************************************
Special Session on Advances in High-Performance
Bioinformatics, Systems and Synthetic Biology

of the 22nd Euromicro International Conference on
Parallel Distributed and Network-base Processing

12-14 February 2014 Turin, Italy
http://www.pdp2014.org/specialsessions/bio/
******************************************************************************

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 High
Performance 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



SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages
in the IEEE Conference proceedings format

www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

(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. Submissions can be made through the
submission web site at

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pdp2014


PUBLICATION

Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society

www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/home

in the same volume as the main track. Authors of accepted papers
are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference.
Conference proceedings will be indexed, among others, by IEEE explore,
DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge. A special issue
of a international journal collecting selected papers is under consideration.
