THIRD ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS - IPCAT '99

THIRD INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON INFORMATION
PROCESSING IN CELLS AND TISSUES

Monday August 23 - Thursday August 26 1999

INDIANAPOLIS, USA

PURPOSE OF IPCAT WORKSHOPS
The purpose of the IPCAT workshop series is to bring together
multidisciplinary groups of scientists working in the general area of
modelling cells and tissues. A central theme will be the nature of
biological information and the ways it is processed in cells and
tissues. The workshop is intended to provide a forum to report research,
discuss emerging topics and gain new insights into information
processing systems, enzyme and gene networks, second messenger systems
and signal transduction, automata models, PDP models, cellular automata
models, single neuron computation, information processing in
developmental systems, information processing in neural and non neural
systems and new insights into non linear aspects of physiological
behaviour.



A key motivation is to provide a common ground for dialogue and
reporting research without emphasising one particular research
constituency or way of modelling or singular issue in this area. IPCAT
'99 will seek to further the meaningful dialogue and exchange of ideas
started at IPCAT '95 and IPCAT '97 between biologists, physicists,
computer scientists and mathematicians.
