The National Biomedical Computation Resource (http://nbcr.net <http://nbcr.net/> , NBCR) is pleased to present its second annual Summer Institute (http://nbcr.net/si/2007) to be held July 30 - August 3, 2007. This training program provides an overview of cyberinfrastructure and multiscale modeling approaches, and includes plenary sessions and hands-on training sessions using the 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 participants. Each of the following topics represents a parallel track that will meet half days, for four days. Each participant may sign up for up to two tracks. Some tracks may offer extended sessions for advanced users. * Cluster and grid computing * Programming scalable scientific applications * Computational cardiac electrophysiology and mechanics * Molecular electrostatics and diffusion * Molecular visualization and virtual screening * Integrative studies: translational biomedical research For online access of training session materials, please visit the NBCR Public Wiki for the Summer Institute (https://nbcr.net/pub/wiki/index.php?title=NBCR_Summer_Institute). The workshop is geared toward graduate students, postdocs and researchers interested in learning how to use specific tools addressed by this workshop and/or who are interested in understanding the role of cyberinfrastructure in biomedical research. <http://nbcr.net/si/2007/announcement.pdf> Registration fees are $400 for two tracks, or $250 for one track. Registration fees are waived for out of town participants using the campus lodging and meals plan. The campus lodging and meals plan is $660 (6 nights), plus $110 for each additional night. For individuals who require campus housing and meals, the registration deadline is July 16th. For individuals who do NOT need campus housing and meals, the registration deadline is July 23rd. All tracks are free to UCSD affiliated participants subject to space availability, with paying participants and those with accepted posters given higher priority. There are a number of scholarships awarded to defray the costs of attending the Summer Institute. Applicants are encouraged to apply early. The deadline for application is May 31, 2007. Notifications will be given by June 14, 2007. Please send your CV, poster abstract, and one letter of recommendation from or contact info for your Ph.D. advisor or immediate supervisor to Wilfred Li <mailto:wilfred at sdsc.edu> (wilfred at sdsc.edu). Awardees are required to present a poster during the poster sessions.
