High Performance Computational Life Sciences at ISC'10

‘Life Sciences’ is becoming a strategic discipline at the frontier between Molecular Biology and Computer Science, impacting medicine, biotechnology, as well as society. ‘Life Sciences’, the leading edge research is one of the most challenging supercomputer application for the future. At ISC’10 we will organize a special session about ‘Life Sciences’, to fulfill the growing interest from the public and the scientific world.

‘Computational Life Sciences’ is fast emerging as an important discipline for academic research and industrial application. The large size of biological data sets, inherent complexity of biological problems and the ability to deal with error-prone data all result in large run-time and memory requirements. This session will provide a forum for discussion of latest research (from world-class speakers and reputed researchers in the field) in developing high-performance computing solutions to problems arising from molecular biology.

‘Life Sciences’ span a whole set of research topics to better understand how the components of complex living systems interact and give rise to life and how their malfunction causes disease. The use of HPC is clearly a must and future progress and development in this field is only possible if supercomputers are heavily involved.

Chair: David A. Bader, Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology & Matthias Rarey, Professor, University of Hamburg
