Two-day Cellular Computing Symposium CELLCOM04
Centre for Scientific Computing, University of Warwick
Organisers: M. Amos (Exeter), R.A. Roemer (Warwick)
[Sponsored by funds from the EPSRC]
We wish to announce the First International Symposium on Cellular Computing (CELLCOM04), to be held at the University of Warwick, December 09-10th 2004.
This event will be the first to bring together researchers from across the globe working on the theory and practise of cellular computing. Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to) gene regulation, metabolic networks, cell signalling, simulation and theoretical models of cellular processes. We have particularly encouraged papers describing experimental results.Confirmed invited speakers include:
- Charles Cantor, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Boston University/Sequenom Inc.
Precision in the design and analysis of nucleic acid circuits
- James Shapiro,Professor of Microbiology, University of Chicago
Thinking About Evolution in Terms of Cellular Computing
- Ron Weiss, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering, Princeton University
Engineering digital, analog, and transient behaviour in cells
- Mike Simpson, Principle Investigator, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
The Spectral Features of Stochastic Fluctuations Reveal Details of the Underlying Gene Circuit Structure and Function
There is no registration fee for the symposium, and meals and accommodation (for a bounded number of delegates) will be provided free of charge.
New: Selected papers from the Symposium will appear in a special issue of the journal Natural Computing.
All places for the symposium are now filled but it is possible to submit your details to be held on a reserve list. To do this please email Cheryl Sutton (C.A.SuttonATexeter.ac.uk) giving your name, affiliation, telephone and email addresses.
Participation will be limited to 40 delegates. There is no conference fee and meals and refreshments will be provided. Overnight accommodation for the 9th December can be provided for a number of delegates but there will be no support for travel.
The symposium will start at 10.30 am at the Scarman Conference Centre at the University of Warwick. Note that the university is located at the outskirts of Coventry and not in Warwick. See http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/about/visiting/ for travel details and http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/about/visiting/maps/ for maps of the central campus. In case you come by car, parking is available for delegates at the Conference Centre.
