Massively-Parallel Computational Biology on GPUs

The workshop will be organized in conjunction with INFORMATIK 2009, the 39th annual meeting of the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI). This one day event will take place in Lübeck Germany, during the duration of INFORMATIK 2009 (September 28th - October 2nd, 2009).

Scope of the Workshop
The workshop will include tutorials, refereed sessions, invited talks, and an open discussion session on future developments. Submissions are encouraged in all areas of Massively-Parallel Computational Biology on GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) including but not limited to
  • Parallel and massively-parallel Programming and Algorithms
  • Algorithmic Aspects of Computational Biology
  • Applications and Implementations on GPUs
Submissions [closed]
All submissions are to be made through the electronic management system of the conference.
Accepted submissions will be published in the Proceedings of the conference ("Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI)" of the GI). Instructions can be found here. Author's guidelines in English are here.

Workshop Language
The working language will be English.
