October 5, 2006

Brussels, 04 Oct 2006

An international conference on converging sciences will take place on 16 and 17 October in Trento, Italy. The main aim of the conference is to discuss computer science as an enabling technology for biotech and pharma industries, and to debate the idea that computer science can play the same role that mathematics played for physics in the last century.

The conference will further aim to stress that the distinction between basic and applied research should be replaced by the notion of targeted and communicative research.Further information:
