Title: Life Sciences & the Grid Workshop, Jan 9-11

To all those involved in Life Sciences and Data Intensive Research and Development-
Register to attend the SURA 'Life Sciences and the Grid' Workshop, January 9-11, 2006 at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia.  

Early registration is now through December 22 for $175. Late registration is from December 22-30 for $225.

Program Agenda, Registration and Travel information is available at:

Join colleagues and experts for presentations and discussions regarding: 
- Unique benefits of the grid to life science researchers;
- Various definitions of "grid" and grid-based applications;
- Life sciences research using grid-enabled applications;
- Building collaboration;
- Approaches to database design, analysis and modeling in the data-intensive sciences; 
- Implementation approaches to sharing grid infrastructure and resources;
- Life science grid initiatives and funding opportunities.

The program will be of interest to:
- Life science researchers using ultra large and mixed data types who wish to learn about the opportunities and language of grid technology.   
- Computer scientists, biostatisticians, application developers, grid project teams seeking insight into the unique needs of high performance computing and data intensive life sciences. 
- Grid experts and organizations interested in sharing roadmaps for successful grid application and resource deployment in support of life sciences research.
- Research officers, strategic planners and funding agencies wanting information about regional grid infrastructure needs and initiatives.

The workshop benefits those involved in many areas of study including genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, sequence analysis, neuroinformatics, image reconstruction and analysis, drug discovery, evolution and phylogeny, computational biology, networks and systems biology, molecular chemistry, structural bioinformatics, bio-ontologies, biological data modeling and integration, translational research, agriculture, zoology and more.

Attendees do not need to have technical knowledge of computer science or grids to benefit from the workshop.   

SURA is pleased to welcome Sun Microsystems as a Gold Sponsor and IBM as a Silver Sponsor of this workshop.

Please contact Mary Fran Yafchak, IT Program Coordinator, SURA () if you have any questions or need additional information.
