Conference on Bioinformatics 2004 planned for Aotearoa
the land of the long white cloud
Nau Mai, Haere Mai - Welcome to New Zealand! From September 5 through
8, 2004, the Aotea Centre in Auckland will become the site of the
third International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB). The conference
is being hosted by the Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology
and Evolution and the Bioinformatics Institute, University of Auckland.
InCoB 2004 is the third annual international conference of the Asia
Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNet). The importance of bioinformatics
in the face of the ever-increasing amounts of biological data cannot
be denied and it is for this reason that scientists in the Asia
Pacific region are striving to use database management, artificial
intelligence, data mining and knowledge representation to provide
key solutions to the questions posed by their research, particularly
on local resources of economic and strategic importance. InCoB provides
an international platform for experts and budding bioinformaticians
to address the development of cutting-edge computational biology
applications and findings on interdisciplinary research such as
molecular evolution, health, agriculture, microbes and tropical
diseases and on sequence and structure analysis.
