I just got an email that the registration for the 3rd International Biocuration Conference closes this Friday, March 27th. The conference is April 16th-20th in Berlin and if there is ANY way you can get there, I suggest you do! It is a GREAT meeting – I’ve had the pleasure of attending both the 1st & 2nd meetings in the past, and will be representing OpenHelix at this one too. This meeting is a really cool, small meeting where resource creators and curators come together to exchange ideas and discuss solutions to current and future bioinformatics problems. I really hope that some of the bloggers I met at ScienceOnline in January make it to this meeting – I think the two groups have a lot in common. It is also a great place to hear about new resources. OpenHelix (ok, I) will be introducing a new resource in fact. Mary alluded to it in her comment reply to Theadore. If you are going to be in Berlin with me, you can stop by poster F12 on Friday night 4/17 19:00-22:00, or come to my talk during the Sunday morning session 4/20 8:30-10:00 to hear more!
