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.

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

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.
