WBA 2010 - Workshop in Bioinformatics and Algorithms

July 27 and 28, 2010

Auditorium of NUMEC (Núcleo de Apoio à Pesquisa em Modelagem Estocástica e Complexidade) at the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of São Paulo - IME-USP

A meeting on the occasion of the visit to the University of São Paulo (USP) of the Bamboo Team under the leadership of Marie-France Sagot, INRIA Rhône-Alpes, France. On the occasion, other researchers from Europe, Chile and Brazil, who collaborate with this team will also be visiting USP.

We are pleased to invite all the interested researchers to this informal meeting. The participants are welcome to attend the lectures as well as the Problem Session (with submissions on the spot). The meeting will focus on algorithmic aspects of problems arising in bioinformatics and combinatorial optimization.

All activities will take place at the building of NUMEC, located next to the building (Bloco C) of Computer Science Department at IME-USP.

The talks will be given in the Auditorium of NUMEC (ground floor). For the group work, the participants may use the Auditorium as well as the first floor of NUMEC. Blackboards, tables, chairs and sofas are available in the first floor.

The Laboratory at the first floor may be used by the participants to connect (by cable) to the network of IME (with their own notebooks).
