INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE (ICCS 2010) http://www.iccs-meeting.org/
CALL FOR PAPERS
Bioinformatics is providing the foundation for fast and reliable data analysis. Genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, epidemiological, clinical and text mining applications have made essential progress through using bioinformatics tools. Standard tools are usually offered through the Web. This is no longer sufficient with more complex analysis and simulation tasks from emerging research fields like systems biology, image analysis, biomedical applications or data management.
In recent years Grid and Web services based approaches have been developed to face the new challenges.Moreover, emerging life sciences applications need to use in a coordinated way both bioinformatics tools, biological data banks, and patient’s clinical data, that requires seamless integration, privacy preservation and controlled sharing. This 3rd Workshop on Biomedical and Bioinformatics Challenges to Computer Science will bring together scientists from computer and life sciences to discuss future directions of bioinformatics algorithms, applications, and data management. Questions to be looked at are whether wrapping existing algorithms as Grid or Web service will be sufficient to cope with the more complex applications and the increasing volume of data to be processed or which applications would profit from being redeveloped as native parallel or distributed application. Furthermore, the use of novel parallel architectures and dedicated hardware to implement bioinformatics and biomedical algorithms will be discussed.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
The workshop is seeking original research papers presenting innovative solutions from parallel, distributed and Grid computing applied to bioinformatics algorithms and life sciences applications.
Specifically we are interested in the following topics:
- sequence and structure bioinformatics
- computational proteomics
- systems biology
- biomedical image analysis
- biomedical simulation
- data management
- data integration
- data visualization
- workflow modelling
- distributed biomedical applications
- high performance computing
- dedicated hardware and architectures
- parallelisation techniques
- service orientation
- volunteer computing
- peer-to-peer computing
PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION
We invite original previously unpublished contributions that are not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference. The submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of Procedia Computer Science (for formatting information see for text/latex and for MSword. Click here for a Latex template plus instructions). Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. PostScript and source versions of your paper must be submitted electronically through the paper submission system. Please, note that papers must not exceed ten pages in length, when typeset using the Procedia format. Dates of deadlines for draft paper submission (full paper), notification of acceptance, deadline for camera-ready paper submission and registration may be found in the Important Dates section of the ICCS Web site. Papers must be based on unpublished, mature and original work and must be submitted to ICCS only.
JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE
At the end of the workshop, we plan to invite the best 4-6 papers of the workshop for a special section on an international journal. Selected papers (extended and revised version) accepted on the 1st edition of the workshop have been published on a special section of Future Generation Computer Systems, Elsevier.
Full papers submission: December 20, 2009
Notification of acceptance: February 15, 2010
Camera ready papers: March 1, 2010
Early registration opens: February 15, 2010
Early registration closes: March 31, 2010
Conference sessions : May 31 - June 2, 2010
