      Artificial Intelligence and Heuristic
            Methods for Bioinformatics
        A NATO Advanced Studies Institute
            San Miniato, Italy October 1-11, 2001

    Application deadline: July 25, 2001

    Artificial Intelligence and Heuristics (e.g., machine learning and
    data mining, pattern recognition, cluster analysis, search, knowledge
    representation) can provide key solutions for the new challenges posed
    by the progressive transformation of biology into a data-massive
    science. This school is targeted to scientists who want to learn
    about the most recent advancements in the application of intelligent
    systems to computational biology.

    Topics:
      Computational analysis of biological data. Artificial intelligence,
      machine learning, and heuristic methods, including neural and belief
      networks. Prediction of protein structure (secondary structure,
      contact maps). The working draft of the human genome. Genome
      annotation. Computational tools for gene regulation. Analysis of
      gene expression data and their applications. Computer assisted drug
      discovery. Knowledge discovery in biological domains.

    Lecturers:
      Pierre Baldi (University of California, Irvine)
      Soeren Brunak (CBSA, The Technical University of Denmark)
      Rita Casadio (CIRB, University of Bologna)
      Antonello Covacci (Chiron Italia)
      Paolo Frasconi (DSI, University of Florence)
      Terry Gaasterland (Rockefeller University)
      Dan Geiger (Technion, Israel)
      Mikhail Gelfand (Russian Academy of Science, Moscow)
      David Haussler (University of California, Santa Cruz)
