Dear all,

this is a reminder for next deadlines of the NETTAB 2005 Workshop on
"Workflows management: new abilities for the biological information
overflow" that will be held on next October 5-7, 2005, in Naples, Italy.

The Scientific Programme is now available on-line at
http://www.nettab.org/2005/progr.html .

The Opening Lecture will be given by Francis Ouellette.

Francis Ouellette is the Director of the UBiC, the Bioinformatics
Centre of the University of British Columbia, Canada. He is Associate
Professor of the Michael Smith Laboratories and of the Department of
Medical Genetics of UBC. He is also a core faculty member in the new
UBC graduate Training Program in Bioinformatics for Health Research,
associate director of Bioinformatics at Genome British Columbia and
director of the Canadian Genetic Diseases Network (CGDN) bioinformatics
core facility where he helps coordinate the Canadian Bioinformatics

Francis has an exceptional curriculum and his recent research,
training and coordination activities make him one of the most known
and appreciated bioinformaticians.

The title of his opening talk will be
"Workflow management in bioinformatics: the possibilities and the challenges".

The Call for posters and position papers is closing on next friday
August 26, 2005.
You are all warmly invited to present your recent activity related to the
workshops' topics by submitting a poster abstract (1-2 A4 pages, font size
12 pt, MS Word format) by email to posters2005 at nettab.org .

Topics are the following:

Technologies and technological platforms of interest, with emphasis on:
- Web Services (SOAP, WSDL, WSFL, UDDI, ....)
- Web Services Choreography and Orchestration
- Semantic Web (RDF, LSID, OWL, ...)
- comparison of available technologies, limitations, pros and cons
- knowledge representation
- biological data and knowledge modeling tools
- Ontologies, Databases and Applications of Semantics in Bioinformatics

Workflow management systems in bioinformatics
- implementations of web services
- implementations of registries
- reuse and versioning of web services and workflows
- workflow management systems
- web interfaces for accessing and executing workflows
- interactive systems to support work flows

Applications of workflow management systems in bioinformatics
- Methodologies for life sciences analysis, such as:
  - gene expression,
  - genome annotation,
  - mass spec peptide fragment identification,
- Encoding of the above in workflows
- Case studies
- Scenarios and use cases
