ISC 2019 Conference keynote brings high performance computing to life


21 Mar 2019 Frankfurt - The ISC High Performance 2019 conference keynote will be delivered by Professor Ivo Sbalzarini, who will speak to an audience of 3500 attendees about the pivotal role high performance computing plays in the field of systems biology. Under the title, "The Algorithms of Life - Scientific Computing for Systems Biology", Ivo Sbalzarini will discuss how HPC is being used as a tool for scientific investigation and for hypothesis testing, as well as a more fundamental way to think about problems in systems biology. The ISC conference and exhibition will take place from June 16-20 in Frankfurt, Germany, and will be held at Messe Frankfurt.

Using computation as a model for the processes of life can be especially enlightening. For example, the component elements of biological systems, such as proteins and lipids, can be thought of as the hardware, while the genetic code plays the role of the software. The keynote abstract explains: "Each cell can therefore be understood as a mechano-chemical processing element in a complexly interconnected million- or billion-core computing system."

Ivo Sbalzarini will also talk about the challenges of developing algorithms for data analysis, inference, and simulations to help understand the myriad biological processes that drive living systems. In addition, he will explore a number of practical approaches, such as employing real-time biomedical image analysis, the use of novel simulation languages, and the applications of virtual reality and machine learning techniques.

Ivo Sbalzarini's background in computational science and biology enables him to draw both subjects together in a unique manner. In his current role as the Chair of Scientific Computing for Systems Biology on the faculty of computer science of TU Dresden, he is fostering innovative ways to apply scientific computing to the life science domain. He is also the Senior Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, as well as a member of the Faculty of Mathematics of TU Dresden.

In addition, Ivo Sbalzarini is the founder and head of the MOSAIC Group, which does research in the application of scientific computing to image-based systems biology. Scientists there draw on expertise in computers, mathematics, physics, and biology in order to develop interdisciplinary approaches to studying biological processes in a three-dimensional, temporal context. The group is following a co-design approach, where the nature of a given biological problem is the basis for developing novel computational methods and solutions.

To learn more about how computational biology is transforming the life sciences, be sure not to miss the conference keynote on June 17, 2019.
