5.04.09: 10th International Conference on Systems Biology Meeting (ICSB 2009), August 30-September 4, Stanford, USA

Dear Systems Biology Community,

We would like to call your attention to the 2009 International Conference on Systems Biology Meeting which will take place at Stanford University this year. This 10th ICSB continues an annual series of conferences initiated by Hiroaki Kitano in Tokyo in 2000. The most recent meetings were held in Yokohama (2006), in Long Beach (2007), and in Göteborg (2008). Stanford University is situated in the San Francisco Bay Area – birthplace of both recombinant DNA and the personal computer, and home to major academic and industrial efforts in vital aspects of systems biology, notably biotechnology, informatics and computing. Please see the website for schedule, speaker and registration information: www.icsb-2009.org

We look forward to seeing you there!

24.03.09: Transatlantic summer school on Cancer Systems Biology

Transatlantic summer school on Cancer Systems Biology, 7-11 June 2009, Rostock-Warnemünde (see poster).
This transatlantic summer school provides a unique training opportunity for PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, whether they are "experimentalists" or "modellers". This is a one-off, non-profit event to train researchers and attract young scientists to the field of cancer systems biology. The number of participants is strictly limited.

23.03.09 International Workshop on High Performance Computational Systems Biology (HiBi 2009), Trento, Italy, October 14-16, 2009

The HiBi (High performance computational systems Biology) workshop establishes a forum to link researchers in the areas of parallel computing and computational systems biology.
One of the main limitations in managing models of biological systems comes from the fundamental difference between the high parallelism evident in biochemical reactions and the sequential environments employed for the analysis of these reactions. Such limitations affect all varieties of continuous, deterministic, discrete and stochastic models; undermining the applicability of simulation techniques and analysis of biological models.
The goal of HiBi is therefore to bring together researchers in the fields of high performance computing and computational systems biology. Experts from around the world will present their current work, discuss profound challenges, new ideas, results, applications and their experience relating to key aspects of high performance computing in biology.

5.11.08: FEBS-SysBio2009: The 3rd FEBS Advanced Lecture Course on Systems Biology: From Molecular Biology to Biological Function, March 7-13 2009, Alpbach, Austria

On behalf of the Scientific Advisory Board, it is a pleasure to invite you to the third FEBS Advanced Lecture Course on Systems Biology: From Molecular Biology to Biological Function taking place from March 7-13, 2009 in Alpbach, Austria.

Systems Biology is one of the most prominent newly emerging interdisciplinary science areas. By connecting fields such as genomics, proteomics, cell biology, medicine, molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics, with mathematics, bioinformatics, engineering and computation, it enables discovery of yet unknown principles underlying the functioning of living cells. At the same time testable and predictive models of complex cellular pathways and eventually of whole cells are generated, which are useful for efficient experimental design and bioengineering and the network-based design of drugs and therapies. FEBS-SysBio2009 will cover essential and state-of-the-art aspects of Systems Biology from principles and methods through the modeling of living systems to applications in biotechnology and medicine.

We were able to commit many leading experts to participate as lecturers, tutors, black-board teachers and informal poster discussants and we are thus confident that FEBS-SysBio2009 will again be an outstanding lecture course with an exquisite scientific program. It will open the doors for regular student training in Systems Biology in Europe, provide a basis for a human network of young Systems Biology experts, and provide a centre for other Systems Biology discussions between scientists and funders.

For more information and the online registration please visit the course website at http://www.febs-sysbio2009.org/. Also Poster and Flyer suitable for printing and distribution can also be downloaded.

Please be aware that the deadline for FEBS YTF Grant applications is November 28 and the registration deadline is December 12, 2008.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Alpbach, Austria.
