 ISMB 2003
 Past ISMB Meetings

Over the past ten years, the ISMB conference has grown to become the largest bioinformatics conference in the world. For 2002, more than 1800 delegates from nearly 40 countries are expected to attend.  ISMB 2002 promises to be the year's premiere event in computational biology and should be viewed as an outstanding opportunity for vendors and exhibitors to highlight their products. To maximize exhibitor exposure the ISMB 2002 Conference Exhibition will be held at the Shaw Conference Centre together with the conference's poster sessions.  The combination of poster sessions, food courts and high quality exhibition space will ensure maximal exposure for your company at this year's conference.
