Young Bioinformaticians Forum 2004 - 19th October 2004 - Said Business
On the 19th of October 2004, the RSC Molecular Modelling Group (MMG,
http://www.rsc.org/lap/rsccom/dab/ind006.htm) and the Oxford Bioinformatics
Forum (OBF, http://www.bioinformaticsforumuk.net), will jointly hold the
second annual Young Bioinformaticians Forum 2004 (YBF). Attendance at the
meeting will again also be free of charge; attendees are only liable for
their travel costs. The winning speaker will receive a prize of #250.
Last year's meeting was a tremendous success, with over 60 attendees, and
the venue will again be the prestigious Said Business School in central
Oxford, which can be reached easily from the Oxford Park and Ride and is
located next to the Oxford railway station.
The URL for the meeting, which contains links to all last year's talks, is:
We aim to attract the best pre-PhD bioinformaticians to speak and attend the
YBF from as wide an area of bioinformatics as possible, including
contributions in the areas of sequence analysis, structural bioinformatics,
database design, algorithm development, ontology, molecular graphics, etc.
YBF is inclusive, being open to applications from current post-graduate
students of all ages, from all universities and all countries.
If you are a postgraduate student, I should like to invite you to submit an
abstract. If you are a supervisor, I should like to invite you to nominate
a graduate student to speak at the meeting, who should then submit an
abstract. Please submit abstracts by July 2nd 2004. The organizers will then
shift through submitted abstracts and select a balanced and appropriate
agenda from these submissions.
