*/3rd International Symposium on Networks in Bioinformatics/*
29, 30 and 31 may 2006
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Deadline for abstract submission: 1 april 2006
Early-bird registration: before 1 april 2006

*/Symposium focus: Bioinformatics of networks/*
Bioinformatics of biological networks involves a range of interconnected 
multidisciplinary research topics. Research areas include the 
quantitative understanding of the dynamics of regulatory and metabolic 
networks by using modeling and simulation techniques, the reconstruction 
of biological pathways from experimental data, identification of pathway 
modules, the analysis and interpretation of experimental data in the 
context of biological networks, the construction and use of (public) 
pathway databases, network visualization and the development and use of 
pathway markup languages such as SBML and BioPax. Biological questions 
and new experimental techniques as well as ongoing (bio)informatics and 
statistics efforts will guide the development of the next generation of 
bioinformatics software packages. The combination of computational and 
genomics research will accelerate the detailed understanding of 
biological networks, which will find many applications in all 
application domains of life sciences.

*/Bridging the gap between disciplines/*
ISNB is specifically aimed at researchers working in life sciences, 
which includes disciplines like molecular biology, genomics, 
bioinformatics, biostatistics, informatics, computational life sciences 
and mathematical biology. Since more and more researchers are focusing 
on biological networks from different perspectives there is large 
interest in a dedicated symposium like the ISNB. ISNB provides a 
platform to bring together these different researchers in this field to 
exchange ideas and facilitate new national and international 
collaborations. Experience from ISNB2004 and ISNB2005 learns that there 
is a significant interest in this symposium. This symposium will also 
contribute to merge ideas and research from scientific programs in the 
field of bioinformatics, computational life sciences (e.g. simulation 
and modeling) and the experimental genomics work.
*/Scientific program and tutorial lectures/*
The Third International Symposium on Networks in Bioinformatics (ISNB 
2006) is likely to continue its success from previous years by bringing 
together different disciplines to discuss ongoing research in this 
exciting field of biological networks and bioinformatics. In 
continuation of ISNB 2005 we aim to organize a three day meeting during 
which we will again schedule a mix of tutorial lectures and scientific 
presentations. The scientific program includes research and poster 
presentations from Dutch and international acknowledged researchers but 
also from young researchers starting in the field. The tutorial lectures 
provide an excellent opportunity to have well known researchers in the 
field give an introduction to junior and senior researchers and students 
who recently started working in related projects. The setup of the 
symposium facilitates sufficient possibilities to meet and talk to 
colleague researchers, which will facilitate many new and exciting 
collaborations and research projects.
