We will hold an OpenTox workshop near Berlin on the 30 May 2010 aimed to discuss developments and progress new actions on the interoperable development of predictive toxicology resources and applications including the importance of Open Standards, Interfaces, Data, Schema and Ontologies.
The workshop will include a variety of perspectives, a Knowledge Cafe discussion and a boat trip around the lakes to network and chat in a relaxed setting.
In addition to presenting and demonstrating on recent OpenTox developments, representatives from many leading international projects will participate to provide perspectives including Robert Kavlock, Director, National Center for Computational Toxicology (US EPA); Carl Westmoreland, Director, Science & Technology, Unilever Safety & Environmental Assurance Centre (Unilever); Emilio Benfenati, Professor and CAESAR Project Coordinator (Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri); Stephen Bryant, Senior Investigator and PubChem Leader, National Center for Biotechnology Information, National Library of Medicine (National Institutes of Health, USA); Jeffrey S. Wiseman, CEO (Pharmatrope); Egon Willighagen, Project Leader, Bioclipse and the CDK (University of Uppsala); Michael Schwarz, Professor and Coordinator of ReProTect (University of Tuebingen); Juergen Hescheler, Professor and Coordinator of ESNATS (University of Cologne); Horst Spielmann, Professor for Regulatory Toxicology (Freie Universität Berlin).
