    Education: Workshop: Modern computer tools for the biosciences -- a grid perspective
    Submitted by Erik Bongcam-Rudloff; posted on Tuesday, November 06, 2007


    LOCALE: Lyon, France
    DATES: May 19-22, 2008

    "Modern computer tools for the biosciences – a grid perspective” will be held in conjunction with the 8th IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid (CCGrid 2008).

    The Workshop is a one-day event focusing on topics including the added-value of the Grid for Bioinformaticians, Biologists and Medical scientists, and the readiness of the Grid for these end-users. The grid concept has already produced a variety of middlewares, components and platforms that are available around the World. But are facilities ready to be exploited by the true end-user? There are several challenging points that are still under development in the biosciences domain. The workshop will focus on some of these critical areas, notably, sharing biological data within distributed filesystems and database management systems, providing developers with programmatic usage of independent remote components such as web services or standard grid APIs, providing end-users with uniform grid access including ergonomic and efficient portals, and creating workflow on distributed resources.


    Submission Deadline: 30th November 2007
    Notification Deadline: 15th January 2008
    Camera Ready deadline: 30th January 2008
