		       Montréal, Québec, Canada

			    A workshop by:
		  Centre de Recherche Mathématiques
		CEntre de Recherche en Calcul Appliqué
			Université de Montréal

			    Organized by:
	  Laboratoire de Biologie Informatique et Théorique
			Université de Montréal

The workshop  on Mathematical Formalisms in RNA  Structure (MFRS) will
be  held in  Montréal, Québec,  Canada on  Thursday and  Friday, April
26-27th 2001, immediatly after the  RECOMB 2001 conference, one of the
most important bioinformatics meetings.

The  goal of  MFRS  is to  explore the  current  state of  the art  in
computational RNA structure, as well  as to provide a look towards the
future of  the field.  The workshop will  provide a general  forum for
disseminating  the  latest   developments,  and  will  bring  together
scientists  from  biochemistry,   computer  science,  mathematics  and
statistics who  will present an overview of  currently used formalisms
for analyzing, predicting and determining RNA structure.

The workshop  is sponsored by  the Centre de  Recherches Mathématiques
(CRM), which received special funding for events like this one, and by
the CEntre de Recherche en  Calcul Appliqué (CERCA).  The current list
of invited speakers includes the following:

  Russ Altman, Stanford University
  James Brown, NCSU
  John Burke, U. Vermont
  David Case, Scripps Research Institute
  Daniel Gautheret, CNRS-Marseille
  Steve Harvey, U. Alabama 
  Pascale Legault, U. Georgia
  Jean-Pierre Perreault, U. Sherbrooke
  Eric Westhof, CNRS-Strasbourg
  Michael Zuker, RPI
