genome informatics meetings

I know some of you were interested in this meeting I mentioned when we
were together at TAIR and I can finally oblige with some concrete info.
I hope you can make it.


August 8 - 12, 2001
Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, UK
Arranged by:
Ewan Birney, European Bioinformatics Institute 
Suzanna Lewis , University of California, Berkeley
Lincoln Stein, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

	The first Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory/Wellcome Trust 
conference on Genome Informatics will focus on large scale genome 
annotation and utilisation. The conference will begin on the 
evening of Wednesday August 8, and finish after lunch on Sunday, 
August 12. The Hinxton Hall Conference Centre is located several 
miles south of Cambridge, and forms part of the Wellcome Trust 
Genome Campus, together with the Sanger Centre and the European 
Bioinformatics Institute. The conference will follow a format 
similar to traditional Cold Spring Harbor meetings, in that the 
majority of oral presentations will be drawn from openly submitted  

	The focus for this conference is large scale genome 
informatics. The explosion of biological data requires a 
concomitant increase in the scale and sophistication of 
information technology. This ranges from the storage of data and 
their associated data models, to the design of effective algorithms 
to uncover non-obvious aspects of these datasets, to ontologies to 
concisely describe biological information, and finally to software 
systems to support curation, visualisation, and exploration. The 
conference brings together some of the leading scientists in this 
growing field, and we strongly encourage researchers from other 
large scale information handling disciplines to attend.

All registrations and abstracts MUST be submitted via our 
web site by the abstract 
deadline, May 25, 2001. Late registration may be accepted 
after the abstract deadline if the meeting is not 
oversubscribed. In the event of oversubscription, every 
effort will be made to ensure that all groups who wish to 
participate will be represented. Status (talk/poster) of 
abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as 
decisions have been made by the organizers. 

We look forward to seeing you at Hinxton, UK in August.
