3rd International Symposium on Networks in Bioinformatics

3rd International Symposium on Networks in Bioinformatics
29, 30 and 31 may 2006
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Deadline for abstract submission: 1 april 2006
Early-bird registration: before 1 april 2006
Symposium focus: Bioinformatics of networks
Bioinformatics of biological networks involves a range of interconnected multidisciplinary research topics. Research areas include the quantitative understanding of the dynamics of regulatory and metabolic networks by using modeling and simulation techniques, the reconstruction of biological pathways from experimental data, identification of pathway modules, the analysis and interpretation of experimental data in the context of biological networks, the construction and use of (public) pathway databases, network visualization and the development and use of pathway markup languages such as SBML and BioPax. Biological questions and new experimental techniques as well as ongoing (bio)informatics and statistics efforts will guide the development of the next generation of bioinformatics software packages. The combination of computational and genomics research will accelerate the detailed understanding of biological networks, which will find many applications in all application domains of life sciences.
Bridging the gap between disciplines
ISNB is specifically aimed at researchers working in life sciences, which includes disciplines like molecular biology, genomics, bioinformatics, biostatistics, informatics, computational life sciences and mathematical biology. Since more and more researchers are focusing on biological networks from different perspectives there is large interest in a dedicated symposium like the ISNB. ISNB provides a platform to bring together these different researchers in this field to exchange ideas and facilitate new national and international collaborations. Experience from ISNB2004 and ISNB2005 learns that there is a significant interest in this symposium. This symposium will also contribute to merge ideas and research from scientific programs in the field of bioinformatics, computational life sciences ( e.g. simulation and modeling) and the experimental genomics work.
Scientific program and tutorial lectures
The Third International Symposium on Networks in Bioinformatics (ISNB 2006) is likely to continue its success from previous years by bringing together different disciplines to discuss ongoing research in this exciting field of biological networks and bioinformatics. In continuation of ISNB 2005 we aim to organize a three day meeting during which we will again schedule a mix of tutorial lectures and scientific presentations. The scientific program includes research and poster presentations from Dutch and international acknowledged researchers but also from young researchers starting in the field. The tutorial lectures provide an excellent opportunity to have well known researchers in the field give an introduction to junior and senior researchers and students who recently started working in related projects. The setup of the symposium facilitates sufficient possibilities to meet and talk to colleague researchers, which will facilitate many new and exciting collaborations and research projects.
