Aims of SocBiN

Bioinformatics is a new scientific area that in northern Europe have been widely established in both academia and companies during the last couple of years. To promote contacts between bioinformaticians within the northern europe, bioinformatics groups from CBS, in Denmark and Stockholm University, organized a conference - Bioinformatics '99. During that conference the organization of future international northern Europe conferences was discussed and it was found that there was a need for a society that could be the formal organizing body for such conferences. An interim board was elected and has since then discussed issues regarding the society and the future conferences.

The aim of the society should be to promote bioinformatics activities within all the northern european countries. The most important issue should be a yearly conference that should move between the different countries. The society should have an active interaction with ISCB - International Society for Computational biology.
