PCDLifeS 2018 - Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Computing for Life Sciences: Algorithms, Methodologies and Tools

Date2018-08-27 - 2018-08-28


VenueTorino, Italy Italy



Topics/Call fo Papers

Advancements in Life Sciences are largely driven by the development of powerful technologies and computational tools. Applications range from drug discovery and personalized medical therapies to improved agricultural and green energy production. However, the solution of world-real problems requires a multidisciplinary approach and poses new challenges to the field of High-Performance Computing (HPC) at different levels:
the modeling and simulation of complex phenomena (human organ functions, evolution of diseases, sustainable energy systems, etc.);
the processing and analysis of massive amounts of data produced by modern technologies (omics and genome sequencing, functional and anatomical imaging, High-Content Screening, etc.);
the extracting, merging and understanding of information from different sources (merging different types of images, bridging imaging and omics data, etc.);
the storage, security, and availability of datasets (in order to gather information, compare results, reproduce the experiments, etc.).
The PDCLifeS Workshop is oriented to explore the key role of HPC algorithms, methodologies and tools for solving problems related to different branches of Life Sciences (Biology, Biomedicine, Bioengineering, Ecology, etc.).
