Multiscale Modeling and Simulation: from Molecules to Cells to Organisms
Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing
The Big Island of Hawaii -- January 4-8, 2008
http://psb.stanford.edu/cfp-multiscale.html

The thirteenth Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB), will be held
January 4-8, 2008 at the Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island of Hawaii.
PSB will bring together top researchers from North America, the Asian
Pacific nations, Europe and around the world to exchange research
results and address open issues in all aspects of computational
biology.

Developing tools, techniques, algorithms, and mathematical theory to
integrate modeling and simulation from the micro to the macro-scale
is important in biocomputing. This session aims to foster the
interactive environment for researchers working on different scales
of biological problems, so that more collaborations and activities to
bridge multi-scales will be initiated.
