On my way to ICFP/CUFP/OUD and more in Copenhagen

I’m on my way to ICFP, CUFP, OUD, and more in Copenhagen. Especially interesting to me this year are the several biology related talks and events:

  • ICFP: Sneaking Around concatMap — Efficient Combinators for Dynamic Programming, Christian Höner zu Siederdissen (University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria)
  • ICFP: Experience Report: Haskell in Computational Biology,
    Noah M. Daniels, Andrew Gallant, and Norman Ramsey (Tufts University)
  • OUD: Biocaml: The OCaml Bioinformatics Library, Ashish Agarwal, Sebastien Mondet, Philippe Veber, Christophe Troestler, Francois Berenger
  • CUFP BoF: FP in the Life Sciences
  • CUFP: Functional Big-Data Genomics, Ashish Agarwal, Sebastien Mondet, Paul Scheid, Aviv Madar, Richard Bonneau, Jane Carlton, Kristin C. Gunsalus
  • CUFP: Microsoft: Using F# to Prove Stabilization of Biological Networks, Samin Ishtiaq
  • CUFP: IntelliFactory: Developing an F# Bioinformatics Application with HTML5 Visualization, Adam Granicz
  • CUFP: factis research: Developing Medical Software in Scala and Haskell, Stefan Wehr

Quite an impressive list! Hopefully I’m not being too optimistic in thinking we just might move Biology past the dark ages of Perl.
