About PBC

PBC has been established in 2005 as a workshop accompanying PPAM Conference. From the very beginning its purpose is to provide an open forum for researchers from around the world to exchange their latest research findings in all aspects of parallel computational biology and bioinformatics.

Call for Papers

Bioinformatics is the science of managing, mining, and extracting knowledge from biological data. Since the last PBC workshop in 2011 the field has witnessed two growing paradigm shifts: improved third generation sequencing technology and cloud computing. Because of the flood of digital biological data in many more institutions, application of diverse HPC techniques to solve bioinformatics problems has become even more crucial to the success of the field.

The goal of this Workshop is to present the latest research in high-performance computing applied to bioinformatics. We are especially interested in parallel and distributed algorithms, memory efficient algorithms, and design of high-performance software for clusters, grids and clouds. Submission of articles dealing with parallelization of applications on multi-/many-core, massively parallel systems, accelerator architectures and large distributed systems are specifically encouraged. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

The PBC Workshop will be held in conjunction with the Tenth International Conference on Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics PPAM 2013, Warsaw, Poland, September 8-13, 2013.
