The investigators organize the Gordon Research Conference on Theoretical Biology and Biomathematics. The conference has nine formal sessions, each consisting of 2-3 oral presentations with an introduction by a leading scientist in the area, and two afternoon poster sessions. A wide variety of topics, ranging from global environmental models to mathematical neuroscience to genetic regulation networks, are represented. The unifying theme of the conference is quantitative modeling of complex biological networks. Invited speakers are selected on the basis of their expertise in the respective areas, at the same time emphasizing gender balance, minority representation, and incorporating promising junior researchers. The primary goal of this conference is to bring together established and young investigators from the field of quantitative biology to share their approaches and progress and to discuss the perspectives. Such a multidisciplinary conference is very important for identifying challenges in biology, biotechnology, and medicine that require quantitative modeling and computational approach. Moreover, the participation of students and postdocs helps to increase the number of people working in areas of quantitative biology.
