About PBC

PBC has been established in 2005 as a workshop accompanying the 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. With the ubiquitous adoption of high-throughput sequencing and other bio-technologies, and the concurrent proliferation of multi- and many-core parallel architectures, the field experiences new challenges in delivering scalable and efficient solutions to the front-line of life sciences. This pertains not only to the algorithms and applications but also to the entire large-scale infrastructure including workflows design, data storage and presentation, etc.

The goal of this Workshop is to present the latest research in broadly defined high-performance computing applied to bioinformatics. We are especially interested in parallel and distributed algorithms, memory efficient algorithms, and design of high-performance software and workflows for accelerators, 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 Eleventh International Conference on Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics PPAM 2013, Krakow, Poland, September 6-9, 2015.
