Track on Modeling and Simulation Methods in Computational Biology at the WSC

last modified 2010-11-19 09:38

For the first time a track on Modeling and Simulation Methods for Computational Biology was organized as part of  the Winter Simulation conference, the major international conference in the area of modeling and simulation. It brought together renowned scientists spawning a wide methodological area in Computational Systems Biology. Participants were from Europe, Asia, and the US, the program comprised two keynotes, one panel discussion, and 16 regular papers. The program comprised the following speakers:

  • Nadia Busi, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy
  • Jasmin Fisher, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland
  • Akira Funahashi, Kitano Symbiotic Systems Project, Tokyo, Japan
  • David Harel, Weizmann Institute, Rehovot, Israel (Keynote)
  • Michael Hucka, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, USA
  • Marta Kwiatkowska, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK
  • Pedro Mendes, Virginia Bioinformatics Institute, Blacksburg, VA, USA
  • Carolyn Talcott, SRI, Menlo Park, CA, USA
  • Herbert Sauro, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA (Keynote)

The workshop gave the just started PhD students of the Research Training Group dIEM oSiRiS an excellent opportunity for an overview of the current state of the art in Computational Systems Biology and for discussing aspects of interest in depth and first
own ideas with world-wide leading scientists. As it is the tradition of the Winter Simulation, most of the presentations
had been invited, the acceptance rate of regular papers was below 30%. Papers have been published as part of the
Winter Simulation proceedings and are accessible via ACM, posters are accessible via the page
