Call For Papers
We would like to invite you to the 3rd edition of the Bringing Maths to Life Workshop, that will be held in Naples on 7-9 June 2017 (http://www.bmtl.it).
The workshop provides an occasion for biologists and mathematicians to join forces in addressing key areas in biology that face demanding mathematical challenges.Discussing existing cases to identify gaps or to share existing solutions should help these disciplines in successfully linking up.
BMTL 2017 workshop, as a mélange of different fields, will consist of selected contributions for open discussion to present and confront the most updated results at the interface of mathematics and biology in three main sessions:
– Data: Acquisition, Pre-processing and Storage in different omics datasets
– Information: Data analysis, Novel -omics technologies, Application of deep learning to different -omics datasets.
– Knowledge: Integration of different -omics data, System biology of -omics data
This year the workshop will be held in the magnificent Capitolo Hall of St. Domenico Maggiore Convent, one of the most important spaces created during the renovation started by the prior Ruffo (XVII century).
Confirmed speakers include:
Dr. Valeria D’Argenio, University of Naples Federico II, Italy
Prof. Antti Honkela, University of Helsinki, Finland
Dr. Daniele Iudicone, Zoological Station of Naples A. Dohrn, Italy
Dr. Carlo Sidore, Institute of Genetic and Biomedical Research – CNR, Italy
Prof. Klas I. Udekwu, The Wenner-Gren Institute Stockholm University, Sweden
Prof. Hans Westerhoff, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands
