BioConductor Developer Workshop
24 - 25 April 2008
Lausanne, Switzerland

This meeting is aimed at active developers as well as prospective developers
interested in improving package writing skills and contributing to the
BioConductor project.

The workshop will be held at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, with
English as the working language.  Registration is free, but the number of
participants is limited to 50.

Potential program topics include:

-- Exploiting existing libraries (e.g., BOOST, graphviz, ImageMagic, libxml)
-- Database interactions
-- 'Large' data -- strategies in and out of R
-- Representation and data structures for new (non-microarray) data
-- Accessing and providing web-based resources

The meeting will start on the morning of Thursday 24 April, so you should plan

information (lodging, transportation, etc) will be posted soon.  The closest
airport is in Geneva.
