Symposium Update -- ACS, Anaheim



Colleagues,
 I am pleased to announce that the symposium entitled
  The Bigger Picture: Linking Bioinformatics to
 Cheminformatics  at the next ACS National Meeting
 (Anaheim March 28 - April 1, 2004), has been
 designated a plenary session with the confirmation of
 a talk by Christopher A. Lipinski, Adjunct Senior
 Research Fellow, Pfizer Global R&D, Groton Labs
 (retired).  Dr. Lipinski will speak on  Technical and
 people disconnects hindering knowledge exchange
 between chemistry and biology.  The tentative date for
 this symposium is Sunday, March 28, 2004.
 You are invited to submit an abstract to help complete
 the symposium!
 > From a previous announcement:
 Theme: Most life-science research organizations have
 information systems for sequence data and for compound
 data.  This symposium will explore what is being done
 to bridge these two types of systems and provide an
 integrated view that facilitates faster compound
 discovery.  We welcome talks about information systems
 in production, development, or planning. You can even
 talk about what you wish you could build if you
 could...
 Here are the details:
 - The best way to submit an abstract is on-line using
 OASYS(http://oasys.acs.org/)
 - Please e-mail or call me if you have trouble with
 OASYS.
 - The deadline for submissions is 1 December 2003.
 (You can submit an abstract now and then make changes
 until 1 December.)
 - Target presentation length is 20 minutes, with 5
 minutes for questions.  Please let me know if you need
 more time.
 - We especially welcome presentations from research
 organizations working with bioinformatics and
 cheminformatics.
 - When planning your presentation, consider a back-up
 person from your organization who could deliver your
 talk if for any reason you cannot make it to the
 meeting.
 Questions are welcome!
 Regards,
 Mitch
