    Journals: CfP for Special Collection: Parallel Computing in Evolutionary Bioinformatics, SAGE Journal
    Submitted by Jose Luis Guisado Lizar; posted on Tuesday, July 30, 2019


    Special Collection: Parallel Computing in Evolutionary Bioinformatics
    Journal: Evolutionary Bioinformatics
    JCR Impact Factor (2018): 2.203 (Q2)
    Publisher: SAGE Publishing, USA[...]atics


    In the last decade, the omics revolution and the application of deep AI technologies to evolutionary bioinformatics have significantly boosted the computing power and storage demands of this field.

    At the same time, high performance computing (HPC) has also witnessed a revolution that has turned it into a jungle populated by very different types of parallel computing systems exploiting parallelism at different levels. They include multi- and many-core CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, TPUs or heterogeneous systems joining together several of those types of devices. In addition, cloud computing techniques can also contribute to foster the application of bioinformatics algorithms by turning them into a service (Bioinformatics as a Service, BaaS).

    The aim of this Special Collection is to present the state of the art on the emerging challenges and achievements regarding the use of parallel computing hardware and software techniques applied to evolutionary bioinformatics and computational evolutionary biology.


    Accepted papers will be published continuously from Aug. 2019 to Aug 31, 2020.
    Publication in approximately 4-5 weeks after final acceptance.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the application of the following hardware or software techniques to accelerate evolutionary bioinformatics applications:
    • Multicore and manycore CPUs
    • Clusters
    • Emerging hardware accelerators: GPUs, FPGAs, TPUs
    • Cloud computing
    • Grid computing
    • Parallel deep learning
    • Neuromorphic computing
    • Unconventional computing techniques


    A Special Collection is an opportunity for an open access journal to cultivate a collection of articles around a specific topic, meeting/conference, or a newsworthy development, much in the way a Special Issue functions for a subscription journal. Special Collections are highlighted on the homepage for increased visibility and in most cases receive their own dedicated marketing efforts.

    Evolutionary Bioinformatics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal. Each article accepted by peer review is made freely available online immediately upon publication, is published under a Creative Commons license and will be hosted online in perpetuity. There is no fee for submitting an article. If, after peer review, your manuscript is accepted for publication, a one-time article processing charge (APC) is payable. Articles invited to submit to a Special Collection are eligible for a discounted Article Processing Charge (APC). Should your article be accepted, you will receive 50% off of the current standing APC, which you can find listed on the journal homepage.


    Please select the Special Collection title when prompted during the submission process to indicate your interest in publishing in this Special Collection.
