Joint NETTAB 2010 and BBCC 2010 workshops focused on Biological Wikis
November 29 - December 1, 2010, Naples, Italy

LAST CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

The joint NETTAB and BBCC 2010 workshop on 
"Biological Wikis" promises to be a great meeting 
for all researchers involved in the exploitation of wikis in biology.

Come and discuss your ideas and doubts with such 
scientists as Alex Bateman, Alexander Pico, 
Andrew Su, Dan Bolser, Robert Hoffmann, Thomas 
Kelder, Mike Cariaso, Adam Godzik, Luca Toldo, 
Wyeth Wasserman, Daniel Renfro and other who, we hope, will join the workshop.

It's a great chance to follow smart tutorials and 
lectures on WikiPathways, WikiGenes, PDBWiki, 
Gene Wiki, TOPSAN, and a proficient use of 
Wikipedia and Semantic Wiki. See below a list of 
keynote speakers and tutorials. And of course enjoy Italian lifestyle....

Registration is open at http://www.nettab.org/2010/rform.html .
A reduction of 20 euro applies to all fees for members of ISCB and BITS.
