The Seventh International Protégé Conference will take place at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland from July 6-9, 2004. Please mark these dates on your calendar and plan to join us for a few days this summer. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus offers easy access to the Washington metro system and all the attractions that Washington has to offer.

We would like to thank the National Cancer Institute Center for Bioinformatics (NCICB) and the National Library of Medicine (NLM) for their extremely generous contributions which have made this conference possible.

The conference brings together researchers developing or using Protégé methodologies and tools and is the premier forum for discussion about current and future applications of the Protégé approach. The seventh meeting builds on the success of previous meetings in Manchester, Newcastle, Linköping, Lidingö, Pavia, and Palo Alto. The conference provides a great opportunity to appreciate the breadth of applications of the technology, to share new developments in the field, and to find out how to leverage these developments in practice.

Due to a rapid annual increase in attendance, the format this year has been changed from a workshop to a conference. The first day will consist of tutorials and small focused workshops. The remaining two and a half days of the main conference will include presentations, a poster session, and a demo session. This year there will be a review process resulting in a smaller number of presentations.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the meeting.
