Conference: EvoSysBio Meeting Madison, July 30 - Aug 1, 2012
From the Evolution Directory (EvolDir) via Twitter.
For those with an interest in interdisciplinary meetings, here is a perfect excuse to visit beautiful Madison, Wisconsin at short notice.
>From July 30 to Aug 1, 2012 will be the first meeting on Evolutionary Systems Biology with an associated workshop on modeling languages at the University of Wisconsin-Madison:
The purpose of the EvoSysBio meeting is to explore, how to best bring together evolutionary biology and current systems biology and what new insights might result from this. Evolutionary systems biology analyses critically depend on our ability to build and analyze quantitative models of dynamical systems. Many important questions will require such quantitative analyses on scales that demand full automation. Appropriately designed problem specific programming languages are a powerful way for achieving such automation. The purpose of the associated workshop on modeling languages is to collect examples for what analyses might be desirable and how a modeling language might look like that could facilitate this. This is a place where you can say what you want!
This discussion will inform future development of evolvix, a new user friendly model description language currently under development in the Evolutionary Systems Biology Group at UW-Madison.
The meeting is free, but registration is required for catering and other reasons. Registration will be open until July 21 and is easy, see link on website.
Posters can be contributed until July 21 and there is still the possibility to compete for a very small number of talks.
We expect many exciting interdisciplinary discussions and look forward to seeing you in Madison!
All the best,
Evolutionary Systems Biology Group
