2002 August 3-7: Edmonton, Canada
the 10th Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB 2002)
conference will be held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada from
August 3-7. The ISMB conference is the worlds largest
bioinformatics symposium and has become the flagship conference
of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB).
This year it is expected that more than 1700 scientists from
nearly 50 countries will attend. An additional 700-800 registrants
will be attending ISMB SIG meetings on August 1, 2, and 8.
The ISMB 2002 host city, Edmonton, is noted for its affordability,
safety, numerous summer festivals, and wide-ranging recreational
opportunities. August daytime temperatures average 25°C
(80°F) with approximately 18 hours of sunlight. The conference
will be held in the Shaw Conference Centre, a tiered glass,
state-of-the-art conference facility that overlooks the beautiful
North Saskatchewan River valley. An outstanding selection
of eight invited speakers along with 42 podium presentations
from an equally impressive group of scientists promises to
make this years ISMB conference one of the best ever.
Modern, spacious facilities for internet access, dining, vendor
exhibits, poster displays, tutorials and software demos should
make the entire conference experience both educational and
enjoyable. More information about the conference, registration,
