Subject: 07.05.14 BioGrid07 and 5th Int. Workshop on Biomedical Computationas on the Grid, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Fifth International Workshop on
Biomedical Computations on the Grid 
Seventh IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
May 14-17, 2007


      Modern grid technologies facilitate the coupling of geographically 
distributed resources and offer consistent and secure access irrespective 
of users' physical location or access point. This enables sharing, selecti
on, and aggregation of a wide variety of distributed resources, such as 
supercomputers, computing clusters, storage systems, data sources and i
nstruments, etc., and allows them to be used as a single, unified 

      This workshop focuses on the development, deployment and evaluation 
of grid technologies in broadly biology-related research and practice. 
Specifically, the workshop concentrates on all aspects of grid-enabled 
infrastructures, testbeds, management and security in support of the 
following biology, medical and health related areas:

          o Molecular Modeling for Drug Design
          o Computational Genomics
          o Genetic Linkage Analysis
          o Molecular Sequence Analysis
          o Phylogeny Reconstruction
          o Computational Proteomics
          o Determination of Protein Structures
          o Identification of Genes and Regulatory Patterns
          o Biological Information Retrieval
          o Genetic/Biochemical Networks
          o Biomedical Modeling and Simulation
          o Biomedical Image Simulation
          o Distributed Medical Database Management and Integration
          o Biomedical Image Processing
          o Integration of Biological Information
          o Data Mining and Visualization of Biomedical Data
          o Text Mining of Biological Information Bases
          o Text Mining of Medical Information Bases
          o Grid-Based Approaches to Systems Biology
          o Tele-systems for Diagnostic, Prognostic, and Therapeutic Applications
          o Health Data Storage and Retrieval
          o Medical Imaging: Management, Analysis, Processing and Simulation
          o Social Healthcare
          o Pharmaceutics and Clinical Trials
          o Computerized Epidemiology
          o Collaborative and Proprietary Health Grids
          o Integrative Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics Systems 

      In addition to the focus areas, research articles reporting on 
original results of developing, deploying and evaluating grid techniques 
in novel topics in bioinformatics, clinical informatics, bioimaging and 
public health informatics are also solicited.

      BioGrid'07 provides a forum for both researchers and commercial 
developers. It is the place to meet and discuss hardware and software 
issues involved in the design and use of the cluster/grid environments 
to support biological and health related researches. 


      Papers due: 	Dec. 20, 2006
      Author notification:	Jan. 20, 2007
      Camera-ready papers due:	January 29, 2007

Information for prospective authors:

Papers presented at BioGrid'07 will be published as part of the 
7-th IEEE CCGrid proceedings, as well as in the IEEE Digital Library. 
Extended versions of selected regular papers will be invited to appear 
in a journal special issue (to be announced shortly). Journals associated 
with the BioGrid in the past include the following:

IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine (2006 BioGrid)
Journal of Clinical Monitoring and Computing, Springer (2005 BioGrid)
Parallel Computing Journal, Elsevier (2004 BioGrid)

Submissions should be in PostScript (level 2) or PDF format that will 
print on a PostScript printer. Papers must be original work. This year 
we accept both regular (up to 8 pages) and short (2 pages) papers, both 
of double-column text using single spaced 10 point size type on 
8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per the IEEE manuscript guidelines. All 
submissions will be acknowledged and peer-reviewed. Please send your 
files and direct all your queries via email to

Travel fellowships:

BioGrid 2007 is pleased to announce funding opportunities for student 
presenters of accepted regular or short BioGrid papers. Candidates must 
be registered in a degree program (undergraduate or graduate) at 
an accredited university or college at the time of BioGrid workshop. I
nterested individuals should contact Dr. Chun-Hsi Huang ( for details.
