Registration is now open for the inaugural conference on Informatics for Phylogenetics, Evolution, and Biodiversity (iEvoBio).

iEvoBio aims to bring together biologists working in evolution, systematics, and biodiversity, with software developers, and mathematicians, both to develop new tools, and to increase awareness of existing technologies (ranging from standards and reusable toolkits to mega-scale data analysis to rich visualization).

The 2-day meeting will take place June 29-30, 2010, in Portland, Oregon.  The event will feature traditional elements, including a keynote presentation at the beginning of each day and contributed talks, as well as more dynamic and interactive elements, including a challenge, lightning talk-style sessions, a software bazaar, and Birds-of-a-Feather gatherings.

More details about the program and guidelines for contributing content are available at http://ievobio.org.  To register, please visit http://www.evolutionsociety.org/SSE2010/.
