Calcium is an important second messenger in living organisms. Recent discoveries like calcium sparks, intracellular calcium waves, intercellular calcium waves in brain and other tissue and capacitative calcium entrance caused a surge of experimental research. At the same time, mathematical modeling of calcium dynamics has been one of the major subjects in mathematical Biology.

The workshop aims at bringing together researchers from Biology, Mathematics and Physics to continue the ongoing interdisciplinary discussion. Most scientific topics will be presented with contributions from both theory and experiment. The workshop is intended to display the current trends in research on:
