LAST CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

The joint NETTAB and BBCC 2010 workshop on "Biological Wikis" promises to be a great meeting for all researchers involved in the exploitation
of wikis in biology.

Come and discuss your ideas and doubts with such scientists as Alex Bateman, Alexander Pico, Andrew Su, Dan Bolser, Robert Hoffmann,
Thomas Kelder, Mike Cariaso, Adam Godzik, Luca Toldo, Wyeth Wasserman, Daniel Renfro and other who, we hope, will join the workshop.

It's a great chance to follow smart tutorials and lectures on WikiPathways, WikiGenes, PDBWiki, Gene Wiki, TOPSAN, and a proficient use of Wikipedia and Semantic Wiki. See below a list of keynote speakers and tutorials. And of course enjoy Italian lifestyle....

Registration is open at http://www.nettab.org/2010/rform.html .
A reduction of 20 euro applies to all fees for members of ISCB and BITS.


SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMME

In the style of previous editions, NETTAB 2010 will include: keynote lectures given by leading experts in the field, oral communications from selected contributions, open discussion, selected software demonstrations and posters, as well as tutorials.
