Announcement - Call for papers: Life Sciences Workshop

The workshop on Emerging Computational Methods for the Life Sciences is now accepting paper submissions.

The event will take place 21-25 June 2010 in Chicago, Illinois, as part of the International Symposium on High Performance Distributed Computing.

The purpose of this the workshop is to provide the opportunity for researchers, scientists, engineers, and students to discuss and share the latest research in parallel and distributed high performance systems applied to Life Science problems. It aims to offer an interactive environment for investigators working on novel “computational thinking” for (Systems) Biology, Bioinformatics, Biocomplexity, and Cheminformatics, so that future activities and collaborations will be initiated, as well as fostering discussions about the utilization of HPDC systems in their respective research initiatives. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of Journal Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Application of Information Theory in life sciences
  • Applications of GPU and Multicore architectures
  • Applications of cloud computing
  • Architectures and data management techniques for the life sciences
  • Bio Statistics and its application in biology
  • Bioinformatics databases
  • Biological Data Mining
  • Biological Data Visualization
  • Biological Databases & Data Integration
  • Biological Informatics and Computing
  • Biomedical Databases & Information Systems
  • Biomedical Imagery
  • Biomedical Intelligence and Data Warehousing
  • Comparison and alignment methods
  • Complex Systems and Biocomplexity
  • Computational Biomodeling
  • Computational Drug Discovery
  • Computational genomics and proteomics
  • Computational Systems Biology
  • Data Deluge in Biology
  • Dimension Reduction
  • Genetic Algorithms
  • Grid Computing and Grid technologies for the life sciences
  • Grid, Cluster and Internet Computing
  • High Performance Bio-Computing
  • Knowledge Discovering techniques and Data Mining
  • Life sciences ontologies
  • MapReduce and its enhancements applied to life sciences
  • Many Task Computing and Life Sciences
  • Multimedia Biomedical Databases and Biomedical Knowledge Discovery
  • Parallel algorithms for biological analysis
  • Parallel architectures for biological applications

  • Semantic web for the life sciences
  • Multiple Sequence Alignment
  • System tools that support large scale high-performance bio-computing
  • Text Mining, Information Extraction, and Language Processing
  • Web-mining of Biological data

Submissions are due 1 March 2010.

The papers should be prepared using the ACM proceedings style and no longer than 12 pages for full papers or 4 pages for short papers. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality and significance to workshop topics, technical soundness, and presentation quality. Submission of the paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the workshop. Full and short papers accepted for the workshop will be published in the HPDC 2010 conference proceedings by ACM in the same volume. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of Journal Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience. Please submit your paper to the ECMLS 2010 submission server via an EasyChair account by 1 March 2010.
