MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT / CALL FOR PRESENTERS
BIOCLUSTERS 2004 Workshop
March 30, 2004
Hynes Convention Center, Boston MA USA
* Speakers Wanted - Please Distribute Where Appropriate *
Organized by several members of the bioclusters at bioinformatics.org
mailing list, the Bioclusters 2004 Workshop is a networking and
educational forum for people involved in all aspects of cluster and
grid computing within the life sciences.
The motivation for organizers of this event was the cancellation of the
O'Reilly Bioinformatics Technology Conference series and the general
lack of forums for researchers and professionals involved with the
applied use of high performance IT and distributed computing techniques
in the life sciences.
The primary focus of the workshop will be technical presentations from
experienced IT professionals and scientific researchers discussing real
world systems, solutions, use-cases and best practices.
This event is being held onsite at the Hynes Convention Center on the
first day of the larger 2004 Bio-IT World Conference+Expo. BioIT-World
Magazine is generously providing space and logistical support for the
meeting and workshop attendees will have access to the expo floor and
keynote addresses. Registration & fees will be finalized in short
Presentations will be broken down among a few general content areas:
1. Researcher, Application & End user Issues
2. Builder, Scaling & Integration Issues
3. Future Directions
The organizing committee is actively soliciting presentation proposals
from members of the life science and technical computing communities.
Interested parties should contact the committee at bioclusters04 at open-
