IEEE ISPA Workshop: 3rd International Workshop on Parallelism in Bioinformatics (proceedings published by IEEE)
Special Issue in the International Journal of High Performance Computing Applications (Impact Factor: 1.625, Quartile Q1)


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.
- 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.
- Volunteer computing in Bioinformatics.
- Hardware accelerators (GPUs, FPGAs, etc.) in Bioinformatics.
- Heterogeneous computing in Bioinformatics.
- Green 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.

With regard to the Bioinformatics problems, many different alternatives exist: bioinformatics applied to biomedicine and drug design; biological sequence analysis, comparison and alignment; motif, gene and signal recognition/discovery; molecular evolution; phylogenetics and phylogenomics; determination or prediction of the structure of RNA and protein; DNA twisting and folding; gene expression and gene regulatory networks; deduction of metabolic pathways; microarray design and analysis; proteomics; functional genomics; molecular docking; design of DNA sequences for molecular computing; etc.
