Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Ladies and Gentlemen
First of all please accept our warm greetings from Hanoi, Vietnam to all of you in Hong Kong and Nansha.
It is a great honor for the Colege of Technology, Vietnam National Universiity Hanoi to participate in the organization of the Sixth International Conference on Bioinformatics by videotelecasting. On behalf of the organizers in Hanoi, I would like to warmly welcome you, the invited guests and all participants. I wish you all a good health, useful discussions and a great success at this conference.
Dear friends and colleagues,
Bioinformatics is one of the important scientific area in the 21st century. However, this is still new in Vietnam. We, therefore, consider this conference and the activities connected to it as a great opportunity for Vietnamese scientists to get access to this new field of study and research. Indeed, since last week, a large number of scientists from different institutions and all parts of Vietnam and also from other country have been participating the InCoB2007 Training Workshop on Bioinformatics at our College of Technology and they all are present to participate on-line in this conference.
I am happy to inform you that the interest to this conference and its activities comes from scientists not in Biotechnology, but also from scientists from other fields like Computer Science, Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering, Engineering Physics and Nanobiotechnology. It is our great pleasure also to have colleagues from Laos PDR at this meeting. Clearly, this event is a good opportunity to bring scientists from different fields together to build up a multidisciplinary field of study and research in our country. The InCoB2007, therefore, is an important event in the development of Bioinformatics in Vietnam.
On this occasion, I would like to express our sincere thanks to the international and the local organizers of this conference, among the local organizers, the Institute of Biotechnology, Vietnamese Academy of Science and Technology and The College of Technology, Vietnam National University Hanoi, that they all have contributed great efforts to make this event happen and a success. We also sincerely appreciate the support from FAOBMB, IUBMB, APBIONET, ISCB and UNESCO to sponsor these actvities. In particular, I would like to thank Prof. Tan Tin Wee from Singapore, Prof. Martti Tammi from Sweden and Dr. Chuong Huynh from the USA who have given high level lectures and a lot of support to the participants of the training workshop in Hanoi.
Once again all the best for all of you and a great success to the InCoB2007 confrerence.
Thank you for your attention.
