The goal of BioSilico 2003 is to provide a high-level forum on the future directions--and likely impact--of the convergence of Information Technology and the Life Sciences. This invitation-only event will bring together
decision makers from biotech and pharmaceutical companies, the computer industry, academia, law firms, and the investment community. Last year's
symposium attracted over 300 delegates from executive positions in these
fields. From the response so far, it appears that this year's event will match this
in both quantity and quality of delegates.

The topics for BioSilico 2003 will include:

Case studies on how and why bioinformatics is presently being deployed throughout the industry.

Current developments in "Systems Biology" approaches.

Emerging technologies in the fields of proteomics, DNA sequencing, DNA chemistry and their impact on diagnostics and drug discovery.

Progress in developing new levels of precision in targeting and treating disease for personalized medicines.

New developments in storage, transfer, super-computing, and analysis.

Real-world perspectives from companies that finance these technologies, whether as Wall Street investors or Pharmaceutical end users, as to the current bottlenecks to success.
