                TOPIC 17:   High-Performance Bioinformatics

                            EURO-PAR 2006 
                     August 29 - September 1, 2006 
           Dresden University of Technology, Dresden, Germany

                      TOPIC 17 - DESCRIPTION

Genome sequencing projects and their successor projects have produced enormous 
amounts of biological data including genome sequences, protein structures and gene 
expression profiles, to name a few. High performance computational biology and 
bioinformatics are definitely required to extract valuable biological and biomedical 
knowledge from the ever-increasing biological data. New computational techniques and new 
theoretical models are required to simulate complex biological behavior of biological 
systems. This track focuses on high-performance and high-throughput computing necessary 
for management of biological data, extraction of meaning from biological data and using 
such data in models of biological systems, and modeling and simulation of biological 
systems. Applications using parallel programming, grid computing, and/or specialized 
computational systems are of particular interest  particularly the challenges of scaling to 
very large scales (100s of TeraFLOPS to PetaFLOPS).

Authors should report relevant experiences, present novel approaches to existing problems 
and raise important novel issues. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, those in 
the following list:

-	Computational biology and bioinformatics applications on grid systems
-	Petascale computational biology
-	Computation pipelines and workflows for computational biology and 
        biological data integration
-	Ontologies and semantic web approaches for bioinformatics
-	Supervised and unsupervised analysis and categorization of genomic and 
        proteomic data
-	Mathematical modeling and simulation systems for systems biology 
-	Predictive biology: how do we get there?
-	High performance architectures and systems for computational biology, 
        systems biology, and bioinformatics

                    MISSION STATEMENT - EURO-PAR

Euro-Par is an annual series of international conferences dedicated to
the promotion and advancement of all aspects of parallel and
distributed computing. Each year, the conference normally attracts
more than 300 participants coming from universities, research centres
and industry. Euro-Par 2006 will represent 18 topics
(http://www.europar2006.de/index.php?page=3) in the categories
of hardware, software, algorithms and applications, and will also
include tutorials, invited talks, and co-located workshops.
Besides, the planed Grid Village provides an opportunity to showcase
the latest developments in Grid technology with demonstration and hands
on experiences.
