     I apologize for any cross-posting of this announcement.
                              ICCS 2011
                          4th Workshop on
   Biomedical and Bioinformatics Challenges to Computer Science

"The Ascent of Computational Excellence in the Land of the Rising Sun"
                        Computational Science
           Tsukuba International Congress Center, Tsukuba
                       June 1 - June 3, 2011
 * * * CALL FOR PAPERS - Submission Deadline January 23, 2011 * * *

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.
This 4th Workshop on Biomedical and Bioinformatics Challenges to
Computer Science 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. Furthermore, the use of novel parallel architectures and
dedicated hardware to implement bioinformatics and biomedical
algorithms will be discussed.

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

The submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to
the rules of Procedia Computer Science. Please use this file for a
Latex template plus instructions and click here for an MS word
template file. 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.
Please, note that papers must not exceed ten pages in length, when
typeset using the Procedia format.
Dates of deadlines for draft paper submission (full paper),
notification of acceptance, deadline for camera-ready paper submission
and registration may be found in the Important Dates section of the
ICCS Web site.
Papers must be based on unpublished, mature and original work and must
be submitted to ICCS only.
After the conference, selected papers may be invited for a special
issue of the Journal of Computational Science
ICCS is an ERA 2010 A-ranked conference series.

After the workshop, selected papers may be invited for a special issue
of the Journal of Computational Science. Selected papers (extended and
revised version) accepted on the 1st edition of the workshop have been
published on a special section of Future Generation Computer Systems,
