Dates: April 22-25, 2014
Location: Manchester, UK
Hosted by: <a href="http://www.mib.ac.uk/">Manchester Institute of Biotechnology</a> (MIB)

In 2010, the systems biology standards communities inaugurated a new, broader series of meetings to replace, among other events, the individual SBML and SBGN workshops and BioPAX meetings. <p>HARMONY is a hackathon-type meeting, with a focus on development of the standards, interoperability and infrastructure. There are generally not many general discussions or oral presentations during HARMONY; instead, the time is devoted to allowing hands-on hacking and interaction between people focused on practical development of software and standards. The HARMONY 2014 meeting will be hosted by the <a href="http://www.mib.ac.uk"/>Manchester Institute of Biotechnology</a> at the <a href="http://www.manchester.ac.uk">University of Manchester</a>, Manchester, UK. </td> </tr> </table> </html> </div>
