Registration is now open for the inaugural conference on Informatics  
for Phylogenetics, Evolution, and Biodiversity (iEvoBio), at http://www.evolutionsociety.org/SSE2010/Register.html 

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, OR,  
jointly with the Evolution Meetings as a satellite conference.  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.

Attendees can register jointly for Evolution and iEvoBio at a  
discount, or only for the iEvoBio conference. For more information  
about registration, venue, travel, or accommodations visit the  
Evolution 2010 website at http://www.evolutionsociety.org/SSE2010/.

More details about the program and guidelines for contributing content  
are available at http://ievobio.org. You can also find continuous

iEvoBio is sponsored by the US National Evolutionary Synthesis Center  
(NESCent) in partnership with the Society of Systematic Biologists  
(SSB). Additional support has been provided by the Encyclopedia of  
Life (EOL).
