Tue Oct 6 13:50:17 CEST 2009

Call for participation for two events connecting computer science and
in conjunction with Formal Methods 2009:

1. Tutorial on Computational Systems Biology
	Eindhoven, the Netherlands, November 2, 2009
	Registration deadline: October 16, 2009

2. Second International Workshop on Computational Models for Cell Processes
           Eindhoven, the Netherlands, November 3, 2009
	Registration deadline: October 19, 2009

1. Tutorial on Computational Systems Biology (November 2, 2009, full day
- Lecturers: Ion Petre and Ralph-Johan Back, Abo Akademi University, Finland

- Content: This one-day tutorial provides an introduction to computational 
systems biology, starting with a crash course on molecular biology for 
computer scientist and continuing with discrete, continuous and stochastic 
modeling techniques, as well as formal methods-based approaches. A 
demonstration is included on Copasi (Complex Pathway Simulator), a useful 
tool for modeling and simulating sysbio projects. The well-known heat 
shock response, that the lecturers and their research groups have been 
working on already for some years, will serve as a running example 
connecting the various topics.

- Registration deadline: October 16, 2009

2. Workshop on Computational Models for Cell Processes (November 3, 2009)

Computational systems biology is an exciting new application area for
applied mathematics and computer science. This workshop of the 16th
International Symposium on Formal Methods fosters an excellent platform
gathering researchers in formal methods and related fields that are
interested in the wealth of opportunities and challenges in systems biology.
