Dear all,

this is reminder that the deadline for the submission of abstracts for posters for next NETTAB 2018 workshop is set to next Sunday September 16, 2018.
See the Instructions for authors here below.

Devoted to the FAIR approach, tools and applications in bioinformatics, it is for sure one of the best programmes set up for a NETTAB workshop.
I invite everybody to have a careful look at the programme at http://www.igst.it/nettab/2018/programme/scientific-programme/ .

Here is a quick summary of the programme.
