                           Call for Participation
                   2nd International Workshop on Interactions
                      between Computer Science and Biology

                        Affiliated to DisCoTec'11

                            9th of June 2011
                            Reykjavik, Iceland

                           Programme available


The aim of this workshop is to gather researchers in formal methods
that are interested in the convergence of Computer Science, Biology
and life sciences. In particular, we solicit contribution of original
results that address both theoretical aspects of modeling and applied
work on the comprehension of biological behavior. In particular we
want to encourage presentation of interdisciplinary work conducted
by teams composed of both life and computer scientists.
Papers selected for presentation at CS2Bio should either present an
attempt at modeling a specific biological phenomenon using formal
techniques, or a technical innovation that can be applied to a range
of potential biological systems. In the latter case, some emphasis
on the scalability of the method will be required. The workshop
intends to attract researchers interested in models, verification,
tools, and programming primitives concerning such complex interactions.
