                              HiCOMB 2011
10th IEEE International Workshop on High Performance Computational Biology

                      held in conjunction with the
      International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium

                             Monday, May 16, 2011

                             Anchorage, Alaska

High-performance computing is fast becoming an integral part of research
and application in bioinformatics and computational biology. The large
size of biological data sets, inherent complexity of biological problems
and the ability to deal with error-prone data all result in large run-time
and memory requirements. The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum
for discussion of latest research in developing high-performance computing
solutions to data-intensive and compute-intensive problems arising from
molecular biology and related life sciences areas. We are especially
interested in parallel algorithms, memory-efficient algorithms, large scale
data mining techniques, algorithms on multicores and GPUs, and design of
high-performance software for biological applications. The workshop will
feature contributed papers as well as invited talks from reputed 
in the field.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  * Bioinformatic databases
  * Computational genomics and metagenomics
  * Computational proteomics and metaproteomics
  * DNA assembly, clustering and mapping
  * Gene expression and microarrays
  * Gene identification and annotation
  * Parallel algorithms for biological analysis
  * Parallel architectures for biological applications
  * Molecular evolution and phylogenetic reconstruction algorithms
  * Protein structure prediction and modeling
  * String data structures and algorithms
  * Parallel algorithms in chemical genetics and chemical informatics
  * High performance algorithms for systems biology

Submission Guidelines:

Papers reporting original research (both theoretical and experimental)
in all areas of bioinformatics and computational biology are sought.
Surveys of important recent results and directions are also welcome.
To submit a paper, upload a postscript or PDF copy of the paper from
the workshop web page (http://www.hicomb.org/).  The paper should not
exceed 12 single-spaced pages (US Letter or A4 size) in 11pt font or
larger. All papers will be reviewed. IEEE CS Press will publish the
IPDPS symposium and workshop abstracts as a printed volume. The
complete symposium and workshop proceedings will also be published by
IEEE CS Press on CD-ROM and will also be available in the IEEE Digital
