Theory and Modeling of Complex Systems in Life Sciences

18-22 September 2017, Saint Petersburg, Russia

Life sciences offer new challenges for the 21st century that require international collaborations and interdisciplinary scientific approaches. The structural and dynamical complexity is ubiquitous in various biological systems, from individual cells to organs, organisms, human and animal populations. This complexity urges for versatile mathematical and theoretical physics tools from probability theory, stochastic and differential equations, statistics, condensed matter and statistical physics, on one hand, and significant experimental and technological progress for observing life complex systems on the other hand. The conference aims at gathering the world leading experts in mathematics, physics, and biology to present and discuss the most recent advances in the theory and modeling of complex systems in life sciences. The scientific talks will be accessible to a broad interdisciplinary audience and students.
