Workshop on Computational Biology and Bio-inspired Computing

Wisla, Poland, October 15-17, 2007

Computational biology and Bio-inspired computing in particular is an interdisciplinary study integrating research methodologies employed in both biological and computational sciences. This merger has provided both communities with a framework, in the form of useful metaphors, for research that has been extremely successful. For instance, artificial immune systems, genetic algorithms, and neural computation have been successfully applied to a wide range of problems outside the biological domain. Likewise, computational models are allowing biologists to extract useful information from protein sequence databanks, analyse microarray datasets, and model complex dynamical systems. This workshop is dedicated to promoting the interdisciplinary spirit of computational biology/bio-inspired computing  by providing researchers with a venue for publishing and sharing their research strategies.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Application of biological algorithms in computer science
  • Neuroinformatics
  • Cognitive robotics
  • Finite state machines as biological metaphors
  • Computational Molecular Biology
  • Modelling of dynamic phenomena in molecular and cell biology
  • Neuronal map formation
  • Immune based computing
  • Dynamical systems biology
