Call for speakers for conference in Portugal — High-Scale Computing: Turning Big Data into Smart Data

May 9, 2013 @ 12:00 am - May 24, 2013 @ 12:00 am

The Fifth Annual High-Scale Computing: Turning Big Data into Smart Data conference in Lisbon, Portugal, December 4-5, 2013, is accepting speaker proposals until May 24. The conference is sponsored by Bio-IT World and the Cambridge Healthtech institute, and is part of the Fifth International Clinical Genomics and Informatics Europe conference (December 4-6). The management and analysis of the massive amounts of genomic data generated by next-generation sequencing (NGS) are demanding. The system flexibility, sustainability and scalability of IT infrastructure are vital to support genomic research and translation into the clinic. CHI’s Fifth Annual High-Scale Computing conference showcases innovative network applications, architectures, protocols and interfaces for genomic data management and analysis. These best practices for applying, using and improving critical systems and for services, networking and storage turn big data into smart data. Topics to be covered include:

  • Data infrastructure for peta-scale science
  • Integrated storage, file and disk management systems
  • Data transfer
  • Genomic data privacy and security
  • Cloud computing infrastructure and platforms
  • Discovery and provisioning with hybrid cloud
  • Real-time estimation of distributed parameters systems
  • Digital imagery network applications
  • Application-aware network performance management
  • Ultra-scale visualization of life science data
  • GPU-enabled applications
  • Other advances and developments in the field

Proposals can be submitted online at http://www.clinicalgenomicsinformatics.com/cgie_content.aspx?ekfrm=125535. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference will be given to abstracts from those within academic centers, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, and regulators.
