Summer Institute Announcement (http://nbcr.net/si/2006/)


	      The National Biomedical Computation Resource (NBCR) is
pleased to present its first annual Summer Institute to be held on 7-11
August 2006. This training program will provide an overview of
cyberinfrastructure and multiscale modeling approaches, and include
plenary sessions (day 1) and hands-on training sessions using tools
essential for cutting edge biomedical research. NBCR's goal in offering
this Summer Institute is to broaden the impact of these tools and work
closely with the biomedical community in future developments, while
offering significant opportunities for networking among researchers and



	      The specific topics to be addressed include:


	      * GridSphere portals 


	      * Web services and ontology 


	      * Cluster and grid computing


	      * Computational cardiac electrophysiology and mechanics 


	      * Molecular visualization and virtual screening 


	      * Molecular electrostatics and diffusion


	     Each of these topics represents a parallel track that will
meet half days for four days. Each participant may sign up for up to two


	      Who should attend? 


	      The workshop is geared toward graduate students, postdocs
and researchers interested in learning how to use multiscale modeling
tools addressed by this workshop and/or who are interested in
understanding the role of cyberinfrastructure in biomedical research. 




	      For individuals who do not need housing, the registration
deadline is July 31st, and the costs are $250 for two tracks, or $200
for one track. For individuals who require housing and meals, the
