Open registration for the scientific event: MERGING
KNOWLEDGE: from programming languages to personalised healthcare
(Trento, ITALY, Nov 30 - Dec 3 2010), organised by CoSBi
Top speakers of the Scientific
Community will highlight the relevance of computer science on
simulation, verification and computational thinking and will explore the
main fields of systems biology and computational biology. Room for open
discussion on the new challenges at the intersection of life sciences
and computer science. Register now, limited seats available.
This scientific event celebrates the fifth anniversary of CoSBi with top speakers from the Centre’s scientific reference community.
We envision a unique, multidisciplinary environment which stimulates discussion and encourages collaboration on challenges such as the intersection of life sciences and computer science by considering the road from programming languages to personalised healthcare.
We will highlight the relevance of computer science through lectures by guest speakers on simulation, verification and computational thinking – the basis of algorithmic systems biology.
We will present some of CoSBi’s main findings by including in the programme the defence of three PhD theses carried out at CoSBi and a public session of our advisory board review.
Guest speakers will explore the main fields of systems biology and computational biology as well as topics like nutrigenomics, an area currently being investigated by CoSBi that merges personalised medicine with personalised diet.
