I think this is brilliant. I would prefer to set it up before ISMB (as by
the end I usually have complete conference fatigue - as I am sure many
other people do). Georg - can you tentatively book a room with computers
if at all possible - for a time over this period, so we can make sure we
can do this? Then we have to figure out
The potential dates I am suggesting therefore is either thursday
5th August (just before) or Friday 6th August (overlapping with the
tutorial day). I'm marginally keener for the thursday.
- format of the 'day'
- costs (if any?) and how to fund them
- how to get applicants and decide who comes if there are limited
- how (if at all) to coordinate with ISMB
- web site presence etc...
I suspect someone needs to volunteer to coordinate all this. ;) Any
volunteers out there for sorting it out? We should probably have a guy
in charge and a commitee and Georg should at least be on the commitee
as he will be closest to heidelberg... (sorry Georg!)

I look forward to it.

I think we have a number of offers now which look like we are sorted.
We'll keep you posted on it.

Probably. I think hardware/connection improvements + CPAN (which we are
sorting out at the moment) should solve it.
