Phylogenetic gathering in Leipzig in the week from May 23 to May 28, 2004.
The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences (mis) and the Interdisciplinary Center for Bioinformatics (IZBI) in Leipzig will sponsor a (comparatively small and very informal) workshop on "Phylogenetic Combinatorics". Topics will range from the integration of palaeontological and molecular data to tree-space analysis to tank-based clustering methods and the analysis of proteomics data, e.g. micro-array data and fluorescence data.
The idea is that people would start flocking in from Sunday, May 23, on to meet in smaller or larger groups for absolutely informal discussions and joint work on whatever the participants may want to work on, and that an officially announced workshop would start on Thursday, May 27.
From outside Germany, the following scientists have already agreed to join this meeting: Alex Grossmann (Paris), David Epstein (Warwick), Mike Steel (Christchurch, NZ), and Bill Atchley (Raleigh, NC, USA).
