Inaugural Conference on Informatics for Phylogenetics, Evolution, and Biodiversity (iEvoBio)

29-Jun-2010 - 30-Jun-2010
the US National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent)

Registration is now open for the inaugural conference on Informatics
for Phylogenetics, Evolution, and Biodiversity (iEvoBio), at

iEvoBio aims to bring together biologists working in evolution,
systematics, and biodiversity, with software developers, and
mathematicians, both to develop new tools, and to increase awareness
of existing technologies (ranging from standards and reusable toolkits
to mega-scale data analysis to rich visualization).

The 2-day meeting will take place June 29-30, 2010, in Portland, OR,
jointly with the Evolution Meetings as a satellite conference. The
event will feature traditional elements, including a keynote
presentation at the beginning of each day and contributed talks, as
well as more dynamic and interactive elements, including a challenge,
lightning talk-style sessions, a software bazaar, and Birds-of-a-
Feather gatherings.

Attendees can register jointly for Evolution and iEvoBio at a
discount, or only for the iEvoBio conference. For more information

iEvoBio is sponsored by the US National Evolutionary Synthesis Center
(NESCent) in partnership with the Society of Systematic Biologists
(SSB). Additional support has been provided by the Encyclopedia of
