Venue: Boardroom, John Hume building, NUI Maynooth.
Date: TBA.
Attendees: Any scientist or engineer with an interest in bioinformatics, either as their main research focus or as a user of bioinformatics resources.
Hosts: Dr. James McInerney (NUI Maynooth), Dr. Aaron Goldn (NUI Galway), Dr. Andy Shearer (NUI Galway).


Science Foundation Ireland has funded the initial phase of the National Centre for High-End Computing. The project is being led by Dr. Andy Shearer at NUI Galway. This centre is dedicated to the support of computational problems in the sciences and engineering in Ireland and an integral component of this centre is the provision of support for bioinformatics.

To assess the kind of issues that are facing the Irish scientists, there will be a workshop held at NUI Maynooth, where we shall describe the facility that is being developed, the equipment that will be purchased, the management structure and future perspectives. What will follow will be an informal discussion, where we will look for submissions regarding the desiderata for such a Centre - what kinds of support are needed and how best to deliver these objectives.

Ideal attendees are those with any interest in such a resource - biotechnologists, computer scientists or engineers.
