Call For Papers

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

The workshop on Novel High Performance Computing algorithms and platforms in Bioinformatics gears to gather recent work on both algorithm design and hardware platforms to deal with the emergent challenges of the next century in the field of Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Computational Chemistry. We are looking for disruptive proposals presented from a holistic perspective that really make a step forward in these fields. In this regard, one of the main aims of the workshop is discussing about the main trends in parallel processing, algorithm definition and problem-domain requirements altogether, which may anticipate future solutions to be translated into real benefits to the society. With that in mind, we are thinking on creating the right atmosphere for a discussion of research opportunities in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Computational Chemistry from a multidisciplinary point of view within the computer science area.

Additionally, proposals may rather be reflective of a broader industry trend. High-Performance Computing (HPC) systems are becoming crucial to the progress of science and technology. With particular focus on (but not limited to) the chemical and pharma industry, we want to provide a forum to discuss how to translate these results into commercial uptake of new HPC technologies.

The goal of BIO-HPC’18 is therefore to bring together researchers from different fields of Parallel Processing, Computer Architecture, Soft Computing and Bioinformatics to provide a forum for discussing future research directions and challenges to translate academic results into real benefits for the society. In conclusion, we look for original, high-quality research papers, clearly focused on multidisciplinary research that combines both Parallelism and Algorithm as applied to any possible of Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Computational Chemistry problem.

PAPER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Submissions may not exceed 8 pages in PDF format including figures and
references, and must be formatted in the ACM format located at: https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. Submitted papers must be original work that has not appeared in and is
not under consideration for another conference or journal. Work in
progress is welcome, but first results should be made available as a
proof of concept. Submissions only consisting of a proposal will be
rejected. Please visit the workshop website for additional details.

EXTENDED PAPER JOURNAL VERSION

The authors of the best papers from the workshop will be directly invited to submit an extended version for a special issue on the International Journal of High Performance Computing applications (IJHPCA), IF(2016)=2.097. Notice that this special issue will be open to other works not previously submitted to the workshop, although these new papers will compete with the shepherded ones, which will have higher priority for similar quality. Moreover, the best two papers within the topic of molecular biology will be invited to submit an extended version to Bioinformatics, IF(2016)=7.307. These papers will undergo a shepherding process in order to provide the authors with guidance for improving their work.
