International Workshop on Parallelism in Bioinformatics
会议地点: Barcelona, Spain
The goal of PBio is therefore to bring together researchers in the fields of Parallelism and Bioinformatics, hence establishing a forum for discussing challenges, new ideas, results, applications, and future directions. In conclusion, 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.
