Please accept our apologies if you have received multiple copies.

*IEEE Workshop on High Performance Computing for Big Data Computational
Biology (HPC-BCB 2015)*

In conjunction with

*IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM)*

*Washington D.C., Nov 9-12, 2015*

Enormous amounts of data is being produced using modern technologies such
as next generation sequencing machines and high-throughput mass
spectrometers. This creates problems in terms of storage, transmission and
computations of these big data sets. In order to process such data in a
timely manner, high-performance computing is becoming an essential
component in system biology, bioinformatics and computational biology.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for high-performance
computing professionals and academics alike to discuss latest research in
HPC solutions to these compute-intensive and data-intensive problems. We
are especially interested in parallel and distributed architectures and
algorithms, cache-oblivious and out-of-core HPC algorithms,
memory-efficient algorithms, large scale data mining and system biology
techniques, and novel approaches for big data, cloud computing, multicores,
GPUs, FPGA's and new accelerators for biological applications. The workshop
will feature submitted papers as well as invited papers and talks from
reputed researchers in the field of high-performance computing and
computational biology.

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research manuscripts
that demonstrate current research in all areas of high performance
computing, big data and computational biology. Topics of interest include
but are not limited to:

   - Computational genomics and metagenomics
   - Computational proteomics and metaproteomics
   - Peptide identification from big mass spectrometry data
   - Genome annotations via mass spectrometry,
   - Identification of post-translational modifications,
   - Structural genomics via mass spectrometry,
   - Protein-protein interactions,
   - Computational approaches to analysis of large scale mass spectrometry
   - Exploration and visualization of proteomic data
   - DNA assembly, clustering, and mapping
   - Gene identification and annotation
   - Parallel algorithms for biological sequence analysis
   - Parallel architectures for biological applications
   - Molecular evolution and phylogenetic reconstruction algorithms
   - Next generation sequence data analysis
   - High performance algorithms for systems biology
   - Cloud-enabled solutions for computational biology
   - Big data solutions for systems siology
   - Energy-aware high performance biological applications
