KNIME Life Science User & Community Meeting in Boston, 28th September 2012

- Microsoft New England Research & Development Center, Boston, MA

This one day KNIME Life Science User & Community Meeting brings together the developers of KNIME with users, contributors and partners of KNIME. This free one-day event is open to our entire community but is especially aimed at our major community contributors in the greater Boston area that focus on life science applications.
The day will cover best practices with and for the KNIME community.  There will also be an update on KNIME and KNIME Enterprise Products.  Updates and presentations from our KNIME partners around life sciences applications will also be shared. This is an ideal opportunity to get to know KNIME and see how the Life Science Partners add the chemo informatics capabilities to use KNIME in a scientific environment to join data, tools, and science. KNIME developers and partners will be available for questions during breaks.  There will be a reception following that invites attendees to continue discussions and network.

The event will take place at the Microsoft New England Research & Development Center in Boston, MA on 28th September 2012.
