Early bird registration for VIZBI 2015 finishes on 31st January !
 
VIZBI 2015 (http://vizbi.org/2015), the 6th international meeting on Visualizing Biological Data will be held March 25-27, at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Cambridge MA, USA. VIZBI 2015 brings together scientists, illustrators, and designers actively using or developing computational visualization to study a diverse range of biological data.

The conference features 21 invited talks that will review the state-of-the-art and challenges in visualizing data from genomes, transcripts, proteins, cells, organisms, and populations. Prior to the meeting (March 24), there will also be tutorials on several visualization tools. The conference program is available online.

All VIZBI 2015 participants have the opportunity to present a poster describing their work. Just before your poster session, you will be given 60 seconds and 2 PowerPoint slides to briefly introduce yourself and your poster to all VIZBI participants.

If you cannot join us in Cambridge, you have the option of virtual registration, which allows participation in the conference (but not tutorials) via streaming video.

Early registration ends January 31, 2015.

Dear all.

Unfortunately, our application for this year's Summer of Code was rejected.

We realise this is a real disappointment. The SoC is not only a chance to get great students, but also gives us all an opportunity for new collaborations, and get more of an an insight into our respective specializations.

But don't give up now !  Many of the ideas that you (the NESCent mentors) posted on the NESCent GSoC 2014 page could easily fit the remit of one of the organisations that will be participating in this year's SoC.

To that end - I've added some links to the bio/science/math related organisations to help you repurpose your ideas if you'd still like to act as a mentor this year.

Unfortunately, NESCent didn't get accepted as an Organization for the GSoC 2014. If you are a student interested in working on one of the project ideas below, or any of the others on this wiki, then you should contact the mentor, and submit your application to one of the bioinformatics-related ...

+Bilal Nizami thanks. It is a shame - evolutionary informatics is not covered by any other organization. I hope we will fix that next year!

kinda tempted by this one ;)
Not Impossible Labs just revealed the Brainwriter, designed to read and write brain waves for fully paralyzed people so they can draw and communicate, and it's now on display in London.

I'm sure many people will be very happy about this release. Documentation and source for their implementation of the GL stack. I'm looking forward to read the GLSL code. Great move #Broadcom

The people behind the scenes who work tirelessly to make your Linux distribution run smoothly are the packagers. The vast majority of Linux packagers are volunteers who dedicate their evenings and weekends to create and maintain the gears of the Linux distributions they love.

Today is the last day to get PhyloSoC project ideas up on the wiki - the deadline for the org applications is tomorrow! We have a pretty small list at the moment, so if you have something in mind, please do put it up on the wiki.

http://informatics.nescent.org/wiki/Phyloinformatics_Summer_of_Code_2014#Project_Ideas
We are getting ready to submit an organizational application for GSoC 2014! Rather than mentoring students in a single open-source project, NESCent is an umbrella organization for many projects in evolutionary informatics. This means that NESCent projects use a wide variety of technologies and ...

Calling all Mentors - it's time to get your phyloinformatics summer project thinking caps on !!

Sign up to post your project idea at http://informatics.nescent.org/wiki/Phyloinformatics_Summer_of_Code_2014 
 
We are starting to gear up for a 2014 GSoC application. Do you develop an open source software package for evolutionary biology? Are there features queued for development that would make a good summer programming project? This is the time to start thinking about project ideas!
