Subject: 97.06.18 Objects in Bioinformatics - Reusable Software
Being a computational chemist by training, and having now
moved from the field of molecular modelling to bioinformatics,
I thought the following meeting that I'm organising might be
of interest to the list since the themes are relevant to
chemistry too, e.g. Java is redefining how many people think
of software in terms of an object-oriented approach with
libraries of reusable components, and distributed object
technologies, such as CORBA, are providing new ways to access
applications and data over networks and the WWW.

Objects in Bioinformatics-
Reusable Software Components and Distributed Computing
for the Biological Sciences.
18th and 19th June 1997,
European Bioinformatics Institute, Cambridge, UK.
Announcing a two day meeting on the role of reusable object-oriented
software components and distributed objects in bioinformatics and
biological sciences. The meeting will include lectures, presentations,
poster sessions and discussion groups on the rapidly expanding and
developing fields of software components and distributed computing from
both an academic and industrial perspective.
Invited talks will cover the application of reusable components,
software libraries, distributed object technology, data visualisation
and the bioWidget Consortium.
Poster stands, each with a dedicated networked computer, are available
upon which delegates may showcase their work and projects. Participants
are encouraged to submit a brief abstract for a poster relevant to the
meeting themes. We hope to have a prize for the best poster

The meeting is organised by the European Bioinformatics Institute in
association with the bioWidget Consortium. The meeting will be held in
the newly completed conference facilities at the Wellcome Trust Genome
Campus in the grounds of Hinxton Hall, Cambridge, UK. The cost of
registration for the meeting has been kept as low as possible with a
nominal fee of 25 GBP.
