ISCB is sponsoring the second Rocky Mountain Regional Bioinformatics Conference (Rocky '04) in Aspen, Colorado from December 10-12, 2004. The meeting will bring together computational bioscientists from Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico to share research results, build community, and get to know each other better. A mixture of invited lectures, discussions on topics of regional interest and short talks from many regional research groups will make up the scientific program. Informal community building opportunities include discounted lift tickets and a catered dinner.

The conference will feature keynote speakers, flash presentations and posters. We are accepting application for presentations for the conference until November 1, 2004. SUBMISSIONS CLOSED

A cash prize will be given to the best presentations.
