The 2nd SBML Hackathon

European Bioinformatics Institute
April 30–May 1, 2004

SBML Hackathons are an opportunity for software developers interested in SBML to get together with others and work on implementations and software interoperability. Unlike some events, such as the discussion-oriented SBML Forum, the SBML Hackathons are hands-on work sessions where attendees are expected to be familiar with SBML and its specifications and have software they plan on using or testing. The second SBML Hackathon was organized and hosted by Nicolas Le Novère and the EBI in Hinxton, UK.
