This is the final announcement and call for participation 
in 'Objects in Bioinformatics' to be held at the European
Bioinformatics Institute in Cambridge (UK) on the 18th and
19th of June, 1997.

Currently, there are 185 registered delegates, 22 speakers 
talking on a variety of object-oriented and distributed 
computing topics of relevance to the biological sciences
and bioinformatics, and over 25 poster presentations. 
[Abstracts are now available online].

The original mailing is included below.

For those who have not registered, but are interested in 
attending, late registration is now in operation at 60 GBP 
(This includes all meals over the two days, and conference 
handouts, etc).


Yours sincerely,
Alan Robinson.

                        Objects in Bioinformatics-
         Reusable Software Components and Distributed Computing
                        for the Biological Sciences.

                         18th and 19th June 1997,
            European Bioinformatics Institute, Cambridge, UK.

Announcing a two day meeting on the role of reusable object-oriented
software components and distributed objects in bioinformatics and the
biological sciences. The widget and object-oriented approach is a
powerful paradigm in which new applications are developed by utilising
pre-existing components interacting in concert, and offers the
possibility of a new generation of bioinformatic tools. In this way
development time is reduced and greater time is spent on data analysis
and knowledge discovery.

The meeting is aimed at those who are interested in, are developing, or
have developed reusable software components that will be of use to the
bioinformatics and biological community. It will also address the
implication and application of distributed object technology to biology
and bioinformatics.

The meeting will include lectures, presentations, poster sessions and
discussion groups on the rapidly expanding and developing fields of
software components and distributed computing from both an academic and
industrial perspective.

Invited talks will cover the application of reusable components,
software libraries, distributed object technology, data visualisation
and the bioWidget Consortium.

Poster stands, each with a dedicated networked computer, are available 
upon which delegates may showcase their work and projects. Participants
are encouraged to submit a brief abstract for a poster relevant to the 
meeting themes. There will be prizes for the best poster presentations.

Full details about the meeting may be accessed at -

                http://www.ebi.ac.uk/~alan/Meeting/OiB.html

The meeting is organised by the European Bioinformatics Institute in
association with the bioWidget Consortium. The meeting will be held in
the newly completed conference facilities at the Wellcome Trust Genome 
Campus in the grounds of Hinxton Hall, Cambridge, UK.
