The Fourth Workshop on High Performance and Grid Computing in Medicine and
Biology (HiPGCoMB-08), held in conjunction with ISPA 2008 in Sidney, Australia,
brings together researchers in computer science and
engineering, medicine, and biology that use high performance computing
to solve computationally expensive problems in medicine and biology.
The workshop will provide a forum for presenting and exchanging new
ideas and experiences in this area.

Topics of interest include high performance algorithms, systems,
architecture, and tools for the following: (but are not limited to the
following list)

* Microarray Analysis
* RNAi Analysis
* Systems Biology
* Computational Genomics
* Comparative Genomics
* DNA Assembly, Clustering, and Mapping
* Gene identification and annotation
* Computational Proteomics
* Evolution and Phylogenetics
* Protein Structure Predication and Modeling
* Medical Image Processing
* Computer Assisted Surgery
* Computational Medicine Modeling
* Computational Biology Modeling
* Augmented Reality
* Medical Informatics
* High Performance computing for biomedical and bioinformatics applications
* Grid Infrastructures for Biomedical Data Analysis and Management
* Problem Solving Environments for Biomedical and Bioinformatics Applications
* Workflow application for complex analysis processes
* High Throughput for in-silico virtual screening
* Grid Computing Infrastructures, Middleware and Tools for Healthcare
* Grid Computing Biomedical Services
* Security in Biomedical Data Grids
* Semantic Grids for Multimedia Biomedical Data
* Ubiquitous Access to Grid-enabled Applications in Biomedicine
* High-performance Computing for Data-Centric Biomedical Applications


Talks will be accepted on the basis of a paper of
6 pages IEEE CS format that describes the work, its significance, and the
current status of the research. Submit one electronic copy of the
paper in PostScript or PDF format by June 25, 2008. Please visit
the workshop home page for submission instructions (
Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, if the paper be accepted,
at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference.
Otherwise papers will be removed from the IEEE CS digital library.

Notification of acceptance will be given by August 15, 2008, and
camera-ready papers will be due September 15, 2008. Accepted papers will
be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final
manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance. All
accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and included in
proceedings that will be distributed at the workshop. In addition,
authors of selected papers from the workshop will be invited to submit
extended versions of their papers for publication in a special issue
of the International International Journal of Supercomputing and
International Journal of High Performance Computing and Networking (IJHPCN).
