You are kindly invited to the first Workshop on **Bioinformatics in Ageing Research** on 4.5./5.5.2010 in Rostock,
Tuesday 16h - Wednesday 19h. Workshop website:
The workshop includes the 'official' inauguration of the restructured and renamed
Institute for Biostatistics and Informatics in Medicine and Ageing Research -- IBIMA in the Department of Medicine, Univ. Rostock.
|Late registration (after April 19, until May 3):||
* For at most 9 Rostock Scientists: 0 EUR. Call 0381 494 7361 (8-11, 12-14h) to reserve your place, on a first-come, first-served basis.|
* 75 EUR for graduate students.
* 150 EUR for academia & industry.
Late registration is expensive because the room had to be selected by size and the food be ordered until April 19.
Onsite registration is NOT possible.
Registration is simply by email: just send the following information to
+ Name and Institution (as it shall appear on the badge)
+ Status: [ ] Academia/Industry, or [ ] Graduate Student, or [ ] Member of an Academic Institution in Rostock ("Rostock Scientist").
+ Whether you plan to attend [ ] Tuesday, [ ] Wednesday, [ ] Both days.
Confirmation will be sent by email within 3 working days.
** You will then be given information about the mode of payment; registration is not completed without payment (Rostock Scientists just need to wait for confirmation of their registration). Do NOT book travel / accomodation without confirmation and payment. **

Evidence is accumulating that the first genuine anti-ageing interventions
(e.g. approved pharmaceutical, nutriceutical & stem-cell-based therapies)
may become available within the next decade. Model organism data,
next-generation sequencing & other advances trigger a need for large-scale
data analysis. The workshop convenes leading experts to present the
state-of-the art & to talk about upcoming tasks & challenges in the
bioinformatics & systems biology of ageing-related data. |
