High Performance Simulation of Biological systems at MAS 2012
Call For Papers
High Performance Simulation of biological systems
at the International Conference on Modeling & Applied Simulation
Chairs: (a) Horacio Pérez-Sánchez ; (b) José M. Cecilia
Affiliation: (a) (b)Universidad Católica San Antonio, (Murcia) Spain
The goal of this track is to explore the use of emerging parallel computing architectures as well as High Performance Computing systems (Supercomputers, Clusters, Grids) for the simulation of relevant biological systems. We welcome papers, not submitted elsewhere for review, with a focus in topics of interest ranging from but not limited to:
· Parallel stochastic simulation
· Biological and Numerical parallel computing
· Parallel and distributed architectures
· Emerging processing architectures (e.g. GPUs, FPGAs, mixed CPU-GPU or CPU-FPGA)
· Parallel Model checking techniques.
· Parallel algorithms for biological analysis.
· Cluster and Grid Deployment for system biology
· Tools and applications
· Biologically inspired algorithms.
Submissions of Extended Abstracts: April 12, 2012
Notification of acceptance: May 12, 2012
Final Camera-Ready Submission: June 12, 2012
Early Registration: July 1, 2012
Authors' Guidelines (further information author’s instruction section)
Extended abstracts (minimum 2 pages), full draft papers or other proposals should be submitted for the review process through the submission section by April 12, 2012
The extended abstract or the full draft paper must contain title, authors, affiliations, addresses, main body and references.
Each extended abstract or full draft paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee taking into consideration scientific quality, originality and relevance. Only original papers, written in English will be accepted.
The extended abstract or the full draft paper should be prepared by following the final paper formatting. However any type of paper formatting can be accepted for the first submission.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
Notification of acceptance will be sent by May 12, 2012.
CAMERA READY PAPER SUBMISSION
The International Program Committee will accept two types of camera ready papers: extended paper (10 pages, 2 columns); regular paper (6 pages, 2 columns) both for regular and special sessions.
The camera ready paper must adhere to the conference template. The .dot file contains the complete instructions for preparing a camera ready copy for the Proceedings. The final version of the paper must be a PDF file.
Your camera ready paper (extended paper or regular paper) in PDF format must be submitted by using the submission section before the June 12, 2012
The page limit for manuscripts is ten (10) pages (included in the author registration fee).Additional pages will require an additional fee.
If your work must be cleared or approved before publication by your institution, company, or governmental agency, please be sure that process will be completed by the due date above or we will not be able to include it in the CD Conference Proceedings.
