 We are pleased to announce the opening of registration for the forthcoming
2007 Cytoscape Symposium and Retreat to be held at the Academic Medical
Center, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands on 6-9 Nov 2007. Registration
is now possible at:


This years meeting is particularly exciting since it is the first time it
will be held in Europe, specifically in the vibrant historic city of
Amsterdam. 'Floating' on a web of canals, with its unique combination of
old-world charm and cosmopolitan culture, Amsterdam is one of the most
popular European cities for international visitors.

To reach Cytoscape's large European user base a Public Symposium will be
held on November 8th for which there is a formidable list of confirmed
speakers. In addition to the  Public Symposium the retreat consists of
hands-on demo's, user-training sessions  and informal, technically focused
developer meetings:

   - *Tues 6th Nov:*      Cytoscape Developer's Discussions
   - *Wed 7th Nov:*       *Application showcase, hands-on sessions,
   tutorials *
   - *Thur 8th Nov:*       *Public Symposium*
   - *Fri 9th Nov:*          Development of Cytoscape Roadmap for 2007,

The Symposium on Thursday 8th November is of general interest to both
biologists and informaticians. Current and future users of Cytoscape are
invited to visit the Application showcase on the 7th also. The developers
days are targeted to people with an interest in the development of the
Cytoscape software and associated plugins.

We hope that you can join us!

*About Cytoscape:*
Cytoscape (www.cytoscape.org) is an open source bioinformatics software
platform for *visualizing* molecular interaction networks and
*integrating *these
interactions with gene expression profiles and other state data. The
software architecture enables adaptation of Cytoscape functionality to the
specific needs of  biologists and bioinformaticians. It is jointly developed
by the groups of Benno Schwikowski (Pasteur Institute, Paris), Trey Ideker
(University of California San Diego), Chris Sander (Memorial Sloan-Kettering
Cancer Center), Lee Hood (Institute of Systems Biology, Seattle), Annette
Adler (Agilent Technologies, Santa Clara, CA) and Bruce Conklin
(Gladstone/UCSF, GenMAPP).

possible. However, to reach a large audience we decided to include several
relevant maillists also thereby increasing the risk that users get this mail
