HSB 2019: 6th International Workshop on Hybrid Systems and Biology

April 6-7, Prague, Czech Republic. Co-located with ETAPS 2019


HSB is a single-track workshop centering on dynamical models in biology,
with an emphasis on both hybrid systems (in the classical sense, i.e.,
mixed continuous/discrete/stochastic systems) and hybrid approaches that
combine modelling, analysis, algorithmic and experimental techniques from
different areas.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Modelling and analysis of metabolic, signalling, and genetic regulatory
networks in living cells.
- Models of tissues, organs, physiological models.
- Models and methods dealing with incomplete, uncertain and heterogeneous
information including learning for biological systems, parametric
synthesis and inference.
- Stochastic and hybrid models in biology.
- Hierarchical systems for multi-scale, multi-domain analysis.
- Abstraction, approximation, discretisation, and model reduction
- Modelling, analysis and design for synthetic biology, cyber-biological
systems and biomedical studies (e.g. therapies, teleoperation).
- Game-theoretical frameworks and population models in biology
(e.g. Mixed-Effects and Bayesian modelling).
- Biological applications of quantitative and formal analysis techniques
(e.g. reachability computation, model checking, abstract interpretation,
bifurcation theory, stability and sensitivity analysis).
- Efficient techniques for combined and heterogeneous (stochastic/
deterministic, spatial/non-spatial) simulations for biological models.
- Modelling languages and logics for biological systems, with related
analysis and simulation tools.
- Control architectures of biological systems including
biology-in-the-loop systems and bio-robotics.

In general, the workshop is open to new theoretical results with
potential applications to systems and synthetic biology, as well as novel
applications and case studies of existing methods, tools, or frameworks.

Post-proceedings will be published as a volume in the Springer LNCS/LNBI
series, indexed by ISI Web of Science, Scopus, ACM Digital Library, DBLP,
and Google Scholar.

A journal special issue is under consideration.

Papers should be submitted to one of the following categories:
- Regular papers (max 15 pages + max 2 pages of references)
- Tool papers (max 6 pages + max 2 pages of references). Tool papers
require the submission of an executable artifact that contains clear
instructions for the reviewer on how to run the tool.

In addition to original paper contributions, HSB 2019 also welcomes
abstracts for poster presentation, and abstracts for non-original
work (already published or under submission).
See for more details.
