2010 GO camp Meeting Logistics
The 3rd GO annotation camp (3 days) will be held from June 16-18, 2010 (Wednesday-Friday).
This annotation camp will be focused on updating and refining skills of existing GO biocurators including new GO biocurators in existing annotation groups and including the Swiss-Prot curation team. We hope members of each MOD will be represented.
- Deliverables: (1) final annotation documentation for each of the three annotation topics.
- There will be a special emphasis on the reference genome project. Deliverable: (2) annotation propagation rules for the reference genome project.

Maps and Transportation
If you arrive by plane (Cointrin airport)
You will have to take only one bus. The bus stop is in front of the airport on the check-in level. You must have your ticket before getting onto the bus. Beware, the ticket inspectors are heartless! There are machines at every bus stop. Only one ticket is needed: choose the option "tout genève" (cost: CHF 3.- or € 1.90.-, you need the exact change).
Geneva Airport is now offering a free public transport tickets valid for 80 minutes to new arrivals. This free ticket can be taken from a machine in the baggage claim area. This ticket is only valid with your flight ticket to prove that you have arrived on that day.
So, take BUS NUMBER 5 (direction: "HÔPITAL"). The bus ride takes about 30 minutes. Get off at the bus terminus ("HÔPITAL").
All visitors staying at a hotel, can benefit from the Geneva Transport Card, with no additional cost. This personal and non-transferable pass is established upon the visitor’s check-in in the hotel, enabling its holder to use of the entire public transportation network without restriction (bus, train and boat), with validity for the entire duration of his (her) stay including the departure day.

Structure: There will be three (3) ‘focused annotation sessions’ where specific annotation issues will be discussed. Suggestion for discussion topics should be added to the GO camp agenda: 2010_GO_camp_Meeting_Logistics#Focused annotation issues
