 We are pleased to announce the forthcoming 2007 Cytoscape Symposium and
Retreat to be held at the Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam =
Netherlands on 6-9 Nov 2007. More information, updates and registration wil=

This years meeting is particularly exciting since it is the first time it
will be held in Europe, specifically in the vibrant historic city of
Amsterdam. 'Floating' on a web of canals, with its unique combination of
old-world charm and cosmopolitan culture, Amsterdam is one of the most
popular European cities for international visitors.

To reach Cytoscape's large European user base a Public Symposium will be
held on November 8th for which there is a formidable list of confirmed
speakers. Apart from the Symposium the retreat consists of hands-on demo's,
user-training sessions  and informal, technically focused developer

   - *Tues 6th Nov:*      Cytoscape Developer's Discussions
   - *Wed 7th Nov:*       *Application showcase, hands-on sessions,
   tutorials *
   - *Thur 8th Nov:*       *Public Symposium*
   - *Fri 9th Nov:*          Development of Cytoscape Roadmap for 2007,

The Symposium on the 8th is of general interest to both biologists and
informaticians. Current and future users of Cytoscape are invited to visit
the Application showcase on the 7th also. The developers days are targeted
at the core developers of Cytoscape and plugins.

We hope that you can join us!

*About Cytoscape:*
Cytoscape (www.cytoscape.org) is an open source bioinformatics software
platform for *visualizing* molecular interaction networks and
*integrating *these
interactions with gene expression profiles and other state data. The
software architecture enables adaptation of Cytoscape functionality to the
specific needs of  biologists and bioinformaticians. It is jointly develope=
by the groups of Benno Schwikowski (Pasteur Institute, Paris), Trey Ideker
(University of California San Diego), Chris Sander (Memorial Sloan-Ketterin=
Cancer Center), Lee Hood (Institute of Systems Biology, Seattle), Annette
Adler (Agilent Technologies, Santa Clara, CA) and Bruce Conklin
(Gladstone/UCSF, GenMAPP).

possible. However, to reach a large audience we decided to include several
relevant maillists also thereby increasing the risk that users get this mai=
