Objects in Bioinformatics-
Reusable Software Components and Distributed Computing
for the Biological Sciences.
18th and 19th June 1997,
European Bioinformatics Institute, Cambridge, UK.
Announcing a two day meeting on the role of reusable object-oriented
software components and distributed objects in bioinformatics and
biological sciences. The meeting will include lectures, presentations,
poster sessions and discussion groups on the rapidly expanding and
developing fields of software components and distributed computing from
both an academic and industrial perspective.
Invited talks will cover the application of reusable components,
software libraries, distributed object technology, data visualisation
and the bioWidget Consortium.
Poster stands, each with a dedicated networked computer, are available
upon which delegates may showcase their work and projects. Participants
are encouraged to submit a brief abstract for a poster relevant to the
meeting themes. We hope to have a prize for the best poster
