Mathematical Modeling and High-Performance Computing in Bioinformatics, Biomedicine and Biotechnology International Conference

24-27 June 2014 Novosibirsk, Russia

This section is organized by Sobolev Institute of Mathematics SB RAS

Innovate computer technology development gives opportunity to solve problems of modeling in life sciences, biology and biomedicine at a totally new level. Rise of new parallel computation systems architecture requires new algorithm design for solving problems of modeling cell molecular processes, for prediction and analysis of 3D protein structure, analysis of chromosomal structures and genomic information.

Development of high-performance computing, cloud computing and services of data storage for Life Sciences are of special interest.

The results of recent researches in the following fields will be discussed:

1) High-performance and distributed computing in system biology and biomedicine

2) Data mining methods in natural sciences

3) Problems of mathematical modeling in life sciences: direct and inverse problems

4) Mathematical modeling of gene and metabolic networks

5) Mathematical modeling in biomedicine

6) Mathematical modeling of biopolymers structure and dynamics

7) Modeling of DNA-protein and protein-protein interactions

8) Use of application program packs for solving problems of bioinformatics and biomedicine

9) Modeling of pharmacokinetic processes in the body. Numerical methods of solving direct and inverse problems.

10) Mathematical models of immune processes. Direct and inverse problems in immunology.

11) Researching and classification of phase portraits of nonlinear dynamic systems.

Amazonian Conference on Emerging and Infectious Diseases
French Guiana
06/06/2014

Amazonian Conference on Emerging and Infectious Diseases

26th to September 28th, 2014 Cayenne, French Guiana

Organized by the STRonGer consortium, the Amazonian Conference on Emerging and Infectious Diseases (ACEID) will be held from September 26th to September 28th, 2014 in Cayenne, French Guiana.

Since the late 19th century, tremendous efforts have been made to fight against infectious agents responsible for human diseases. The development of hygiene, including the quality of drinking water, better food, the advent and generalization of vaccination, the widespread use of pesticides as well as antibiotics are only a few steps that led to a drastic reduction of public health burden due to infectious diseases.

However, parasites, bacteria and viruses remain a major cause of human mortality worldwide. New diseases have emerged, others have re-emerged in areas where they had been eradicated or at least controlled, and a few others have seen their geographical distribution dramatically expanded.

In parallel with the emergence of new infectious agents, we have to face an increased resistance of bacteria, parasites and viruses respectively to antibiotics, antiparasitic and antiviral molecules. Lastly, numerous arthropod vectors have developed a resistance to insecticide molecules commonly used for vector control.

Some of these infectious agents and their associated diseases have a huge impact worldwide on public health and socio-economic development. Their control has become a major political and strategic international issue. This has led to increased institutional support of research.

In this context, there is an important need for sharing and disseminating the latest developments in emerging and infectious diseases field within the scientific community. The Amazonian Conference on Emerging and Infectious Diseasesthus aims to get together a broad range of scientists “linking fieldwork, benchside and bedside approaches”.

Attending this conference will be the opportunity to stimulate and strengthen collaborations across fields, and to network with a worldwide interdisciplinary group including researchers and academics, as well as health professionals.

ICOST 2014 - 12th International Conference on Smart Homes, Assistive Technology and Health Telematics: Advances in Cognitive Technologies

June 25-27, 2014 Denver, Colorado

After eleven very successful conferences held in France (2003), Singapore (2004), Canada (2005), Northern Ireland (2006), Japan (2007), USA (2008), France (2009), Korea (2010), Canada (2011), Italy (2012), and Singapore (2013), the 12th International Conference on Smart homes, Assistive Technologies and Health Telematics will be hosted in Denver, from 25 to 27 June 2014.

ICOST 2014 will involve key experts from more than 15 countries worldwide.

ICOST is considered as a premier venue for the presentation and discussion of research in the design, development, deployment and evaluation of Smart Environments, Assistive Technologies and Health Telematics systems. ICOST brings together stakeholders from clinical, academic and industrial perspectives and along with end users and family caregivers, explores how Smart Homes, Assistive Technologies and Health Telematics can foster independent living and offer an enhanced quality of life. ICOST 2014 invites participants to present and discuss their experiences in the design, development, deployment and evaluation of smart homes, health telematics and assistive technologies. ICOST 2014 will provide a dynamic program incorporating a range of technical, clinical and industrial related keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations along with demonstrations and technical exhibits.

Virtual Physiological Human Conference 2014

9 – 12 September 2014 Trondheim, Norway

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is very pleased to have been awarded to host the 3rd VPH conference by the Virtual Physiological Human Institute. This biannual conference series grew out of the FP7 Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence. It has become one of the major instruments for maintaining the coherence and momentum of the highly multidisciplinary VPH community. The members of the VPH community subscribe to the view that a substantially improved healthcare can only be achieved through converged efforts of the life sciences, the mathematical sciences and engineering.

International Workshop on Innovative Simulation for Healthcare

September 22 - 24, 2014 Bordeaux, France

A holistic view of healthcare leads to an interdisciplinary field of research ranging from life-science to management disciplines. The increasing computational power and the tight integration of natural and computational sciences open the doors to new paradigms in life science research. The huge complexity of biological systems let deterministic and deductive methods reach their limitations, thus large scale simulations together with advanced methods of modelling are new tools to get insight into the huge diversity of healthcare. This workshop, part of the I3M Multiconference, aims to bring together scientists from engineering, natural and life sciences to stimulate discussion on new methods and topics in the emerging field of healthcare. Tracks shall cover the main aspects of healthcare. It shall not only provide a forum for presentation of novel approaches and methods of advanced simulation for both modelling and analysis but also provide meaningful results and applications. We welcome high-quality, original scientific contributions and will consider them for publication.
