The First International Workshop on High Performance Computing Applied to
Medical Data and Bioinformatics

HPC-Bio 2007

August 25-31, 2007 - Cap Esterel, French Riviera, France


In conjunction with

The Second International Conference on Systems and Networks Communications

ICSNC 2007


Important deadlines:

Submission deadline April 9, 2007

Notification of acceptance  May 15, 2007

Registration/camera ready June 1, 2007

Medical applications, medical images, and biological data require special
processing resources, while guaranteeing privacy and security.  High
performance computing becomes crucial in dealing with huge sensitive data
for special medical activities, such as diagnosis, therapy, e-health,
tele-surgery, as well as specific domains, such as phylogenetics, genomics
and proteomics, or studying virii evolution and molecular epidemiology.

The goal of the Workshop on High Performance Computing Applied to Medical
Data and Bioinformatics, HPC-Bio 2007, is to bring together researchers
from the academia and practitioners from the industry in order to address
high performance computing issues in medical applications and
bioinformatics. The workshop will provide a forum where researchers shall
be able to present recent research results and new research problems and
directions related to them. The workshop seeks contributions presenting
novel research in all aspects of high performance computing applied to
medicine and bioinformatics.

The HPCBio 2007 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society
Press, posted on IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Regular papers

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All
received papers will be acknowledged via the EDAS system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11" (two columns IEEE format), not
exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The
formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page.

Once you receive the notification of paper acceptance, you will be
provided by the IEEE CS Press an online author kit with all the steps an
author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL
will be included in the letter of acceptance.

Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations

The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and
positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12
slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides,
in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will be published in the
conference's CD collection, together with the regular papers. Please send
your presentations to [log in to unmask] or [log in to unmask]


Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals can
be for half or full day tutorials. Please send your proposals to
[log in to unmask]

Panel proposals

The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize
dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and
paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage
that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines.
Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their
background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as
well as short biographies. Please send your proposals to [log in to unmask]
