Venue, accommodation and travel

The workshop is being held at the Jubilee Campus of the University of Nottingham (postcode: NG8 1BB).

Programme for talks

The workshop will start with project overviews from CSBE, CPIB, PRESTA, ROBUST and ONDEX .

Contributed talks from PDRAs and postgraduate students will comprise the majority of the programme. Sessions 2-8 will be multidisciplinary, and themed by physical scale, through networks, cells, tissues and multiscale approaches. The final distribution of these themes across the sessions will be dependent on the abstracts received. Joint talks combining experimental and modelling work are encouraged. Talks which describe tools and resources are also encouraged and will be incorporated into the themed sessions.

Talks by a single presenter will be allocated a 20 minute slot – integrated talks by two speakers will be given 40 minute slots. Please indicate clearly on your submitted abstract if your talk is to have two presenters and requires a double slot.


A poster session will be held on the evening of Day 1 in the Computer Science Atrium. Posters will then be on display in this area for the duration of the meeting.

Poster requirements: Up to A0 size, Portrait orientation.

Demos/workshop session

The workshop/demo session will be held over an extended lunch on Day 2 of the meeting.
