2nd Meeting of the Network MTBio
Modelling and Theory in the Biosciences

November 9, 2000

Dresden, Germany

Recently, the competence network MTBio (Modelling and Theory in the Biosciences) as a forum for information and communication has been founded. MTBio is a joint initiative of mathematical and theoretical biologists, biophysicists, bioengineers, biometricians, biocomputer scientists and biostatisticians.

This meeting predominantly concerns the MTBio steering committee that represents experimental and theoretical competences of the network. In addition, everybody is invited to active participation, who is interested in the promotion of modelling and theory in the biosciences.

The main objective of the meeting is an identification of biological and medical key topics in which modelling, simulation and particularly joint activities of the MTBio network are most promising. These activities will involve the organization of workshops and training programs (e.g. summer schools) but also efforts with respect to an appropriate bundling and focussing of research activities within and outside the network.

The number of participants is limited. The registration fee is DM 50. Costs for accommodation and meals will be covered by the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems.

Please suggest topics for discussion in your application form.
Meeting duration: November 9, 2000, approx. 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
