About Rocky 05 Conference

ISCB is sponsoring the third Rocky Mountain Regional Bioinformatics Conference (Rocky '05) in Snowmass/Aspen, Colorado from December 9-11, 2005. The meeting will bring together computational bioscientists from Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Canadian Rockies 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 October 24, 2005. Fill out the call for presentations form.

Rocky 04 Comments

  • 100% of the attendees found the extent of the scientific program met their expectations
  • 75% said they formed new collaborations as result of attending
  • 100% of the attendees felt the program met or exceeded their expectations
  • Great meeting! I hope to attend next year and participate more extensively . I liked that the short talks weren't over-coordinated by topics. Well done. Thank You. "
  • "Great conference, great location, good job."
  • "Great group of people. I came here looking for collaborators, grad students: I found "one-step removed" colleagues working same problems, and so, defined collaborative efforts during 5-minutes breaks and I found
    3 possibilities as additions to lab-team! I want to share information with colleagues who would then be more likely to attend next time."
