Subject: KDD-2001 Workshop on Data Mining in Bioinformatics, Aug 26, 2001
BIOKDD 2001: Workshop on Data Mining in Bioinformatics
August 26th, San Francisco, CA, USA (with SIGKDD)


Bioinformatics is the science of storing, extracting, organizing,
analyzing, interpreting, and utilizing information from biological
sequences and molecules.  Knowledge Discovery and Data mining (KDD)
techniques will play an increasingly important role in the analysis
and discovery of sequence, structure and functional patterns or models
from large sequence databases.

This workshop aims to present latest results in this exciting area at
the intersection of biology and KDD.

WORKSHOP REGISTRATION: All registrants to the SIGKDD conference are
eligible to participate, but the workshop attendance is by invitation
only, and the number of participants will be limited to 60. To
register for the workshop please send an email to zaki@cs.rpi.edu,
expressing your interest in the workshop. A brief statement of your
research/work interests will be helpful.
