International Conference on Computayional Science (ICCS 2008)
Kraków, POLAND
June 23-25, 2008.
Workshop on Bioinformatics' Challenges to Computer Science


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.

The workshop 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.

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
- workflow modelling
- distributed bioinformatics/biomedical applications
- high performance computing
- dedicated hardware and architectures
- parallelisation techniques
- service orientation
- volunteer computing
- peer-to-peer computing

We invite original previously unpublished contributions that are not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference.
The submitted paper must be formatted according to the rules of LNCS (for formatting information see Information for LNCS Authors - http://www.springeronline.com/sgw/cda/frontpage/0,10735,5-164-2-72376-0,00.html). 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 (http://www.iccs-meeting.org/iccs2008/papers/upload.php). Please, note that papers must not exceed ten pages in length, when typeset using the LNCS format. A paper without figures can be around 5500 words maximally.
