2016 International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (IWBBIO 2016), 20-22 April, 2016. Granada (SPAIN)
It is our great pleasure to announce the 4th International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (IWBBIO 2016), which will take place in Granada (Spain) in April, 2016. Details and instructions for the conference can be found at the conference web site (iwbbio.ugr.es). The conference will be devoted to current researches in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Bioengineering, and we are looking for papers falling into the following Special Session (SS5):
HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING IN BIOINFORMATICS, COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY AND COMPUTATIONAL CHEMISTRY
The goal of this special session is to explore the use of emerging parallel computing architectures as well as high performance computing systems (Supercomputers, Clusters, Grids) for the simulation of relevant biological systems in the context of Structural Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Computational Chemistry. We welcome papers, not submitted elsewhere for review, with a focus in topics of interest on:
Programming Models and Systems for Multicore, Manycore, and Clusters of Multicore/Manycore.
Parallel Stochastic Simulation
Biological and Numerical Parallel Computing
Parallel and Distributed Architectures
Emerging Processing Architectures (e.g. GPUs, Intel Xeon Phi, FPGAs, mixed CPU-GPU or CPU-FPGA, etc)
Parallel Model Checking Techniques
Parallel Algorithms for Biological Analysis
Cluster and Grid Deployment for System Biology
Soft Computing Algorithms in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Computational Chemistry
Application of HPC Developments in Structural Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Computational Chemistry
Biological and Chemical databases for Big Data Management
Automated Verification in Computational Biology
System Infrastructure for High Throughput Analysis
Biomolecular Structure Prediction and Large Molecular Systems
Molecular Visualization of Biological Big Data
Large Scale Proteomics
We encourage you to submit paper focused on interesting, relevant and original works that are related to this Special Session (SS5). We also admit the submission of short abstracts, which must be extended to full paper in case of being accepted.
These are some important dates for the submission:
• Submission of abstracts/papers by authors: December 10th, 2015.
• Notification of provisional acceptance: January 8th, 2016.
• Submission of final papers: January 20th, 2015.
All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under both ISBN and ISSN references. Contributions will be indexed in the ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index (Thomson Reuters) and the DBLP database. Special issues: A list of papers with very high quality will be selected to be extended and submitted in different special issues. We have currently contacted these journals (tentative list):
◦ Biomedical Engineering Online (BMC).
◦ Genomics and Computational Biology.
◦ Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry.
◦ Journal of Biomedical Engineering and Biosciences.
