ICT-BIO 2008

The ICT BIO 2008 Conference (Oct. 23-24, 2008) will provide an insight into existing and future prospects on integrative research for complex human diseases at European and international levels.

23 October 2008 - 24 October 2008

The objective of this 2 day conference is to:

Communicate the opportunities and challenges of the Virtual Physiological Human and Integrative System Biology and other topics that lie at the crossroads of ICT, Biology and Medicine
Provide the possibility for discussions on progress beyond the current state of the art and to promote international cooperation and networking
Provide an overview about the current activities in these domains not only in EU but also in US and other countries, and to examine opportunities for closer cooperation between EU and US funding agencies
Expected results of this conference:

Highlight the potential of multi-scale modelling and simulation for improving health, which could have a significant impact on society and economy in multiple areas In healthcare it could contribute to disease prevention and early detection, patient safety and personalised medicine. It will also open new opportunities for industrial development
Highlight the importance of integrative multidisciplinary research that involves crossing the boarders of different disciplines such as computational sciences, mathematics, biology and medicine
Insight into how multi-scale modelling can be used to better understand the physiology of cells and organs and the aetiology of major disease such as cancer
Show the importance of EU collaborative projects in setting up these multidisciplinary initiatives needed to achieve progress in this field
Link with other international initiatives to stimulate global cooperation in this field.
