VIZBI 2011 Call for Participation

Nov 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Conferences

We are delighted to announce the call for participation in VIZBI 2011, the 2nd workshop on ‘Visualizing Biological Data’, to be held at the Broad Institute, Cambridge-MA (USA), March 16-18, 2011. VIZBI 2011 brings together scientists actively using or developing computational visualization to study a diverse range of biological data. As shown on the attached poster, they have assembled a list of high-profile speakers who will each review the state-of-the-art and challenges with visualization in their field. VIZBI 2011 also features an ‘art & science’ evening (Thursday) during which they will be joined by medical illustrators, graphic designers, and artists interested in biological visualization. On Saturday, March 19, immediately after the workshop, participants can choose from a range of tutorials and take part in a hands-on ‘bring-your-own-data’ session.

All workshop participants are encouraged to submit a poster on their work, plus an image for the art & science evening. A limited number of participants will also be offered the opportunity to be part of an authoritative book co-authored with the VIZBI speakers, essentially an expanded version of the Nature Methods focus issue; the book will be the first to comprehensively review this topic and will be distributed by a major scientific publisher.

Registration for VIZBI 2011 is now open – for further details see here.
