Program Overview

High performance computing (HPC) has become central to the future success of precision medicine. The dramatic increase in the volume of research and clinical data available through medical records, imaging technologies, sequencing, biometric sensors, and mobile health devices, has also opened many new frontiers for AI in medicine. Powered new computing platforms from edge to exascale, there is a critical convergence where HPC is shaping the future for medicine, from cancer to infectious diseases, to drug discovery, to digital twins, to critical decisions in hospital intensive care units.

Not surprisingly, the growth of opportunities for HPC in medicine applications continues to accelerate, powered many successful efforts including EU funded CompBioMed, US NIH Bridge2AI and a growing number of new opportunities globally. The workshop will highlight these opportunities, the convergence of experiment, modeling, AI and data, and the collaborations needed to address an absence of data, a need for standards, overcoming data bias, ethical use of AI approaches, and building confidence in HPC solutions to some of the most challenging problems in medicine.

With the combined interest from a sustained in-person and expanded virtual audience, ISC is now serving as an ongoing hub for collaborative discussion, drawing from across Europe as well as North America and Asia. The HPC Applications in Precision Medicine workshop aims to bring together the international computational and life sciences communities to share experiences, examine current challenges, and explore future opportunities for applications of high-performance computing in precision medicine.


Target Audience

The workshop is expected to attract scientists and developers, from academic to commercial organizations, pharma, and medical schools with interests in discussing computational approaches in medicine, avenues for providing access to data, opportunities for use of AI, and those building new collaborations to deliver solutions improving the lives of us all. 

Prior workshops in related areas continues to attract a cross-disciplinary target audience to the workshop with expertise spanning HPC, machine learning, bioinformatics, parallel programming, big data, computer systems architecture, FPGAs, physics, biomedicine, cancer, precision medicine, deep learning, pathology, virology, GPU computing, computational physics, multiscale modeling, pattern recognition, software development, aerospace/computational fluid dynamics, crystallography, mathematics, storage, computer science, structural biology, IT infrastructure, protein structure, visualization, and systems biology.


Workshop Organizing Committee

The initial workshop organizing committee has spearheaded the identification of presenters from both Europe, US and Asia. The committee was strongly supported by colleagues in identifying the slate of presenters for past workshops and has support for the same in developing the program for the 2022 workshop.
