ISMB/ECCB 2004 will feature a series of "spontaneous" open meetings for participants to meet and talk about topics of mutual interest. The "Birds-of-a-feather" meetings are a long-standing, highly successful tradition at ISMB and ECCB. During the conference, ISMB/ECCB 2004 participants are encouraged to submit a topic for discussion to this website and to recruit as many (or as few) interested participants as desired by the topic leader. The ISMB/ECCB 2004 conference organizers have set aside several rooms specifically for birds-of-a-feather meetings. While birds-of-a-feather announcements occur during the conference dates (July 31-August 4), we encourage would-be topic leaders to START THINKING AND PLANNING NOW.
Birds of a Feather announcements and sign up sheets (Topic, Topic Leader, Location, Time) will be posted each day.
