The main goal of this International Workshop is to develop the mutual interaction between  specialists from biology, nonlinear dynamics, physics and mathematics.

More and more works show that  biological systems have non linear dynamics, so they may have also chaotic behavior and strange attractors. In neural systems new observations show that chaos appears both on the level of one neuron and on the level of large networks. In population dynamics, chaos has been observed in experimental cultures.  It becomes obvious that  there is a challenging demand for studying and modelling  complex dynamics of biological systems in order to describe various modes and activities. In particular, there is a need to understand the interplay between non linearity and stochasticity of biological processes.

The workshop will gather leading specialists from several horizons lecturing and discussing on the achievements and perspectives both fundamental and applied,  non excluding junior scientists and Phd students.
List of topics:
•  Neurodynamics
•  Population dynamics
•  Genetic networks
•  Biological rhythmes
