Members of this Newsgroup may be interested in a novel Conference
organized by the British Society for Plant Pathology and the Systematics
Association. (Please excuse some limited cross-posting.)

In view of the expected appeal of this meeting to a wide range of
biologists and information technologists, the following advertisement
has been placed in Nature. It's not too late to register, even though
the deadline is around now. It's not expensive. The Open Forum is free
to all.

Check out the Web page, in which we are providing lots of links as an
experiment in the use of the Web to enhance the Conference.
