To whom it may concern:

i would like to announce a satellite conference to ISMB 2007 in Vienna.
The satellite meeting is about computational (and experimental) analysis 
of pre-mRNA alternative splicing, including related probelms in RNA 
processesing. This year the number of invited speakers is exceptionally 
large and the meeting will be held together with EURASNET, a European 
network of excellence devoted to the study of alternative splicing.

Thanks for having it posted.

About the Workshop
The organizers of AS-SIG would like to invite you to participate in the 4th Special Interest Group 
meeting on Alternative Splicing (AS-SIG), on July 19-20, 2007 at Vienna, Austria. This workshop 
is scheduled immediately before ISMB/ECCB2007 July 21-25 2007, our co-sponsor, and is 
jointly organized and co-sponsored by EURASNET, the new European Commission funded Network 
of Excellence (NoE). AS-SIG 2007 follows on from initial and subsequent successful Alternative 
Splicing SIG meetings held at the Pacific Symposium of Biocomputing, 2004 and the ISMB in 2005 
and 2006, respectively. 

Session topics
1, Experimental and bioinformatics methodologies for alternative splicing 
    Experimental methods, AS information and databases, Algorithms and genome analyses.
2, Biology of regulatory mechanisms of alternative splicing  
    Regulatory mechanisms of splicing, Biological function.
3, Aberrant splicing, human disease, and concepts for medical treatment 
    Disease biomarkers, Medical applications.
