Readers of this blog, and anyone on the EBI Interfaces mailing, might be interested in a new Google Group called “Biological Interfaces” (“bio-interfaces” for short). Although it is nothing to do with the EBI in particular; we hope it will allow more communication between researchers, developers and people interested in design and visualization in this field.
The group serves as a platform for all bio-interfaces researchers around the world to discuss research matters, post CFP for pertinent meetings/conferences and advertise for related jobs.
Areas covered: design, visualization, human-computer interaction, usability.
To join, you should request an invitation – it’s all pretty straightforward. You don’t need to use a Google account to sign up – you can use any email address.
This group has been set up jointly with Anna Divoli, a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Chicago. Anna takes a user-centred design approach to developing text mining systems.
