Announcement / 2015 Calendar

Winter q-bio meeting

Feb 17 -20, 2015

Maui, Hawaii

Whole-cell modeling summer school

March 9-13, 2015

Rostock, Germany

We are pleased to announce the hackathon-style summer school to be held next year in Rostock, Germany, with the aim of developing an open version of the Karr et al. whole-cell model (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22817898).

The primary aim for the participants of the summer school is to learn about standards for modeling and simulation in computational biology. But a secondary aim is to enjoymodeling, coding and diagramming the whole-cell model using openly available software and COMBINE standards (http://co.mbine.org). 

An anticipated outcome of the event is a roadmap for future developments needed in the different standardisation efforts involved in the summer school. Together, we want to answer the important question: "What is missing in today's standards?" We believe this will help provide guidelines for COMBINE. 

In total, we will accept up to 50 students (PhD to early postdoc level), who will be fully funded through the Volkswagen Foundation. The application form is open until the 31st of October.

Details of the summer school are available from the following website: http://bit.ly/wholecell 

5th International Human Microbiome Congress

HARMONY is a hackathon-type meeting, with a focus on development of the standards, interoperability and infrastructure. There are generally not many general discussions or oral presentations during HARMONY; instead, the time is devoted to allowing hands-on hacking and interaction between people focused on practical development of software and standards. The HARMONY 2015 meeting will be hosted by the groups of Falk Schreiber and Dagmar Walthemath at the Leucorea Wittenberg, part of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany.

Systems Biology of Infection Symposium - 2nd Edition

September 6th – 10th, 2015

Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland


 Infectious agents continue to pose a great threat to human health and the fight against them is gaining momentum. It is a race against time as multi resistant pathogens gain in virulence and geographical coverage. The growing field of Systems Biology of Infection aims at uncovering the complex host-pathogen interactions necessary for pathogen invasion. This multidisciplinary field relies on imaging, modeling, systems biology and infection biology to solve those crucial questions. Building on the success of the June 2013 ''Systems Biology of Infection''conference, the second edition of the symposium will focus on the latest progress in the field and will feature expert researchers from around the world.
