ISCB/GOBLET Meeting

Friday, July 19, 2013
Mohrenstrasse 30, Berlin, 10117, Germany

The next GOBLET meeting is to be held at the Berlin Hilton, in the Salon Heine II, on July 19, 2013, hosted by the ISCB, alongside the events of ISMB/ECCB 2013 (don't forget to visit our poster in the Education Track). This meeting aims to finalise some of the business of the kick-off meeting, which was held in the Netherlands last November - priorities will be to finalise the fee/benefit structure for organisational and individual members, and to agree nomination/election processes for members of the Executive Board and Committee Chairs. During the afternoon, we are extremely pleased to be able to welcome four speakers, who will stimulate us to think about how the GOBLET community could embrace a range of new education and training initiatives.

Owing to space constraints, participation in this meeting is by invitation only.
