Emerging Challenges in Multi-Scale Modeling in Biology
Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing
The Big Island of Hawaii -- January 5-9, 2009
http://psb.stanford.edu/cfp-multiscale.html


The fourteenth Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB), will be held
January 5-9, 2009 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. The session is organized jointly by researchers from NBCR
(http://nbcr.net) and Simbios
(http://simbios.stanford.edu).

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 across different
scales of biological problems, so that more collaborations and
activities to bridge multi-scales will be initiated. The overall
focus of our session is on challenges to be overcome in computational
approaches to multiscale modeling in biology, with a specific focus
on mechanistic (i.e. biophysics-based) patient-specific modeling
crossing different scales from proteins, cells, tissues, organs, up
to the whole-organism level.
