About the workshop

This workshop covers topics related to integrating High-Performance Computing approaches, Big Data Analytics techniques, and Large-Scale High-Throughput Multi-Omics Data Sets.

High-throughput technologies have revolutionized biological research, producing rich omics data layers of genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes, metabolomes, microbiome, epigenome, and other relevant data types. With the great technological progress that has been made, the routine implementation of omics data on a large scale will likely require further improvements in data acquisition, management, analysis, performance, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. Common usage of omics technologies necessitates the HPC vision and direction for leveraging on-demand bioinformatics systems supported by a serious conceptual shift in research paradigm for many researchers, in biological, clinical, scientific training, and performance evaluation.

The workshop aims to provide a forum for bioinformatics, big data analytics, and high-performance computing professionals and academics alike to discuss the latest research in HPC solutions about compute and data-intensive challenges. The workshop will feature submitted papers as well as talks from reputed researchers in the field of High-Performance Computing, Big Data Analytics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology.

Topics

  • Foundation and practical application to integrate Bioinformatics, System Biology, and HPC.
  • Design, implementation, and integration of biological workflow using HPC technologies.
  • Network biological and evolutionary methods for multi-omics integration.
  • Computational support of Bioinformatics analyses in parallel and distributed environments.
  • Best practices in HPC management and development for Bioinformatics and System Biology.
  • HPC, Big Data Analytics and Integration for Multi-Omics Biomedical Data.
  • Analysis, management, and performance evaluation of Big Data Omics Analytics using HPC.
  • Bioinformatics Training activities - computational genomics, metagenomics, phylogenomics, proteomics, and proteogenomics - applied in HPC technologies
  • Other omics and the integration for systems biology are also encouraged to submit

Chairs:

  • Francisco Martínez (Industrial University of Santander, Colombia)
  • Kary Ocaña (National Laboratory of Scientific Computing, Brazil)

CALL FOR POSTERS

Posters are an effective way to show in-progress research, partial results, and even new ideas to be developed. At CARLA Conference, we have a space where researchers can show their advances in current research and have the opportunity to present and discuss them with colleagues and students.

Topics for Posters are the same as the main conference. Authors will have time to show their work to the public, both presential and online. Posters must be accompanied by an Extended Abstract (short paper) with a maximum length of 3 pages, in which authors describe their proposals, works, and partial or final results. The format of this Extended Abstract is the same as papers (see details at https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines).

Consider sending your advances, in-progress research, and even your research proposals. We at CARLA are willing to receive your ideas.

Important Dates

Poster submission deadline: August 7th, 2022
Posters author notification: August 28th, 2022
Camera-ready version: September 16th, 2022
Conference dates: September 26th to September 30th, 2022

Submission Guidelines

Creating your extended abstract file (to be submitted at OCS):

  • All submissions must be in English, the only official language of the conference.
  • Extended abstracts should not exceed 3 pages (including references).
  • Only accepted contributions presented at the conference will be included in the proceedings.
  • Extended Abstract Submission and poster example files are available electronically in Springer’s On-line Conference System: OCS. Once on the submission page, select the category "Workshop 2: Bioinformatics and Computational Life Science (BioCARLA)"
  • As you are submitting an extended abstract, please include the prefix "EXTENDED ABSTRACT:" when filling the 'Title' field on the submission page.
  • Finally, upload your Extended Abstract PDF file at “Provide the paper as a PDF file”.

Creating your poster (to be presented at BioCARLA):

  • Your document size should be 48” width x 27” height (Only horizontal mode due to virtual presentation friendly visualization).
  • Allow 1” margin around edge.
  • This will leave you an area 46” wide x 25” high for your poster art. Do not exceed image or type in this area.
  • Save your file as:
    • High-Resolution
    • Print-Ready PDF at FULL SIZE
    • 300dpi
