Dear colleagues, 

We invite you to participate in the first 

EMBO Workshop on Visualizing Biological Data (VizBi, http://www.vizbi.org)

3 - 5 March 2010 at the EMBL's new Advanced Training Centre in Heidelberg, Germany

The goal of the workshop is to bring together, for the first time, researchers developing and using visualization systems across all 
areas of biology, including genomics, sequence analysis, macromolecular structures, systems biology, and imaging (including 
microscopy and magnetic resonance imaging). We have assembled an authoritative list of 29 invited speakers who will present an 
exciting program, reviewing the state-of-the-art and perspectives in each of these areas. The primary focus will be on visualizing 
processed and annotated data in their biological context, rather than on processing of raw data. 

The workshop is limited in the total number participants, and each participant is normally required to present a poster and to give 
a 'fastforward' presentation about their work (limited to 30 seconds and 1 slide). 

To apply to join the workshop, please go to http://vizbi.org and submit an abstract and image related to your work. Submissions 
close on 16 November 2009. Since places are limited, participants will be selected based on the relevance of their work to the 
goals of the workshop. Notifications of acceptance will be sent within three weeks after the close of submissions. 

We plan to award a prize for the submitted image that best conveys a strong scientific message in a visually compelling manner. 

Please forward this announcement to anyone who may be interested. We hope to see you in Heidelberg next spring!
