Call For Papers


Computationally intensive simulations and processing of large data sets have become a necessity in Life Science research. Full utilization of the available computing platforms has increased the demand for software optimized for performance, scalability and high- throughput. The workshop will bring together leading researchers to share their experiences in software development across all Life Science fields such as biology, biophysics, biochemistry, ecology, medicine, medical imaging, neuroscience, pharmacology and systems biology. The focus will be on discussions regarding methods, algorithms and frameworks for exploiting a wide spectrum of hardware resources such as clusters, grids and clouds; many-core and hybrid systems; GPGPUs, FPGAs and other non-traditional architectures. The workshop is organized by the EU funded project ScalaLife and the HealthGrid association which are establishing community structures for provision of support to various aspects on computing in Life Sciences.

Call for papers:

Topics of interests include (but are not limited to):
• Multicore/manycore architectures in life science applications • GPU support for life science applications • Cluster, Grid and Cloud Computing in the life sciences • Security of computing environments for the life sciences
• Privacy in environments for the life sciences • Parallelization of compute- or data-intensive tasks in the life sciences • Data handling, integration and visualization in the life sciences • Distributed infrastructures for life science applications • Programming paradigms for computing in the life sciences • Tools and programming environments supporting computing in the life sciences • Scheduling in computing environments for life science applications • Workflow management and remote collaboration in the life sciences • System level support for computing in the life sciences • Fault-tolerance of distributed life science applications • Scalability of infrastructures and applications in life science applications
