Call for Extended Abstracts Submission Site:

Early Abstract Submission Deadline :  April 19, 2019







High-performance computing has become central to the future success of precision medicine. Catalyzed by the dramatic increase in the volume of research and clinical data available through sequencing and advanced imaging techniques, clinical data available through medical records and mobile health devices, research data from automated platforms, combined with molecular simulations and the rapid adoption of deep learning approaches has created a convergence shaping the frontiers of computing and precision medicine. New approaches to drug discovery, data sharing, aggregation and safeguards, use of machine learning models in research and clinical contexts has identified new challenges and opportunities in these rapidly evolving frontiers.

The Third HPC Applications in Precision Medicine workshop aims to bring together the computational and life sciences communities to share experiences, examine current challenges, and discuss future opportunities for shaping the future for HPC applications in precision medicine.


The workshop also aims at collectively addressing key questions such as:

  • What is precision medicine?
  • How does the role and availability of clinical data shape the future of HPC enabled precision medicine applications?
  • What new sources of information are anticipated for use in data-driven precision medicine applications?
  • What are opportunities to accelerate advances in precision medicine with HPC?
  • How will anticipated new scales of computing enable new treatments to be found?
  • How will new technologies impact the current use of HPC in precision medicine?
  • Can new computational approaches speed-up regulatory approvals?
  • What collaborations are needed to advance precision medicine and HPC?
