Kepler Workshop on Complex Living Systems Heidelberg, May 16-20, 2011



Conference Poster

In recent years, the scientific community has seen an increasing need in interdisciplinary skills to face the challenges posed by questioning the underlying mechanisms of nature: the ability to interpret scientific problems from different points of views, typical of different disciplines is now more and more important beside the technical knowledge needed to face them.

The winners in 2010 of the KEPLER AWARD for European Young Scientists (KEYS) established by European Academy of Sciences (Eurasc) are the organizers of the Workshop "Managing complexity, reducing perplexity" which focuses on the modelling of complex systems in life sciences combining expertise from different disciplines: physics, mathematics, biology. will approach life sciences combining the expertise coming from different disciplines: physics, mathematics, biology.


Topics of the workshop are:

  • Coping with complexity in biosystems and in life sciences
  • Regulatory networks
  • Cell motility
  • Multiscale issues in cancer modelling
  • Morphogenesis
  • Formation of biological structures
  • Evolution and adaptation

The workshop aims at promoting profitable exchanges between researchers from various disciplines sharing a common interest in life sciences. Interdisciplinarity is the leading issue of the workshop. Ultimately, the workshop should settle the ground for future collaborations between participants and should highlight some promising and challenging themes and fields of activities .

Poster Session: participants are very welcome to present a poster of their research work. The posters will be exposed from the first day in a room dedicated to coffee breaks to enhance discussions within participants.
