We are pleased to host the fourth Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Computational Cell Biology, which will begin in the evening of Tuesday, March 19, and run through lunch on Friday, March 22.
The specific goal for this meeting is to foster fruitful and creative interactions between experimental cell biologists and mathematical/computational scientists who have common interests in the dynamics of cellular processes. All stages of the modeling process will be represented at the meeting, from data generation in experimental cell biology, to data analysis and computer simulation, to the development and validation of quantitative models describing the data, to the models informing further experimentation. The meeting will consist of eight oral sessions plus a poster session and software demonstrations.

Follow the links at left to register for the meeting and submit an abstract. Abstracts should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentations will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. The status of abstracts (i.e., talk or poster) will be posted as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is eager to have as many young people
as possible attend this meeting. As such, we have some funds set
aside to partially support students and postdocs. Please apply
in writing to Andrea Stephenson firstname.lastname@example.org
stating your need for financial support. Preference will be given
to those submitting abstracts.
We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor in March.
