                     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@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@open-
