Announcement / 2011 Calendar

Course: National Short Course at the University of California Irvine

January 10 - 29, 2011

We are excited to announce a new annual 3-week National Short Course in Systems Biology to be held at the University of California Irvine from January 10th to January 29th 2011.
The course emphasis will be on the systems biology of morphogenesis and spatial dynamics. These two themes are well represented by participating faculty expertise from departments affiliated with the Center for Complex Biological Systems (CCBS), the Laboratory for Fluorescence Dynamics (LFD) and the Institute for Genomics & Bioinformatics (IGB) at UC Irvine.

COMBINE (Computational Modeling in Biology Network) 2011

September 3-7, 2011

Heidelberg, Germany

early bird registration: July 15th, 2011


The Computational Modeling in Biology Network (COMBINE) is an initiative to coordinate the development of the various community standards and formats in systems biology and related fields (http://co.mbine.org/). In 2010, the systems biology standards community inaugurated a new, broader series of meetings to replace, among other events, individual SBML, SBGN, and BioPAX meetings, and create a common platform for allied standardization efforts. The annual COMBINE meeting is a workshop-style event with oral presentations, posters and breakout sessions. It provides an opportunity for the different communities to meet and discuss their standardization efforts, with the aim of working more closely together to ensure smooth interoperability between the standards.

COMBINE 2011 will include sessions about encoding biological pathway semantics, encoding mathematical model semantics, visual representation, interoperability, model simulation and analysis, tools and databases applying the standards, and similar topics. We will provide a more detailed agenda in the near future. Please refer to the meeting website for the session schedule and detailed information:

Oral presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts. Abstracts are welcome for posters and talks addressing topics such as the various standards encompassed by COMBINE (BioPax, SBGN, SBML, SED-ML), associated standardization efforts such as MIRIAM and the Systems Biology Ontology (SBO), and related standardization efforts like CellML or NeuroML, as well as for presentations of software systems using these standards.
We hope to see you in Heidelberg!
