Second International Workshop-School
CHAOS and DYNAMICS in BIOLOGICAL NETWORKS
May 3 – 8, 2010
Scientific organization: Bernard Cazelles (ENS, Paris), Mario Chavez (Hôpital de la Salpętričre, Paris), Maurice Courbage (Université Paris 7- Denis Diderot)
Scientific committee:V. Afraďmovich (Mexique), B. Cazelles (France), M. Chavez (France), L. Chua (USA), M. Courbage (France), A. Goldbeter (Belgique), F. Guichard (Canada), H. Korn (France), R. Lima (France), RR. Llinas (USA), M. C. Mackey (Canada), V.I. Nekorkin (Russie), M. Pascual (USA), M. Rabinovich (USA).
The main goal of this second 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 and seems to be important in the diffusion of transmitted diseases in social networks. It becomes obvious that there is a challenging demand for studying and modeling 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 specialists from several horizons lecturing and discussing on the achievements and perspectives both fundamental and applied, not excluding junior scientists and PhD students.

Registration can be carried out through the web page http://ecologie.snv.jussieu.fr/chaosbionetwork/
Deadline for registration and submission of abstracts is April 15, 2010. The registration fees are 500 Euros. They include the accommodation, lunches, coffee break, etc. Dinners and Sunday meals are not included. An additional charge will be asked for an individual room or for accompanied people.
For CNRS researchers, fees, local and travel expenses are fully covered (see your CNRS Delagation).
Grants might be available to cover fees and, eventually, part of travel expenses. Application for support should be accompanied by a short curriculum vitae, a summary of research activities or one recommendation letter by a confirmed researcher. Final decision will be made at April 10, 2010.
Registration form, grant application and all other information should be sent by email to: chaosbionetwork -at- gmail.com
