Systems Biology is the synergistic application of experiment,
theory and modeling towards understanding biological processes as
whole systems instead of isolated parts.  Understanding
biological processes from the systems perspective is an essential
cornerstone of a true understanding of biological function.

The Second International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB2001)
will bring together researchers working in systems biology and
related areas to present the current status of their research and
to discuss future directions for the field.  This year, ICSB2001
will be held during November 4-7, 2001, at the California
Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California, USA.

The conference will begin with tutorials and workshops on the
morning of Sunday, November 4.  The formal scientific sessions
will begin on Monday, November 5, at 8:30 AM and end at noon on
Wednesday, November 7.  The sessions will feature keynote
speeches and invited presentations by world-renowned
researchers, along with afternoon poster sessions and evening
social activities.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION
----------------------

With this announcement we solicit paper submissions to the
meeting.  Relevant topics include (but are certainly not limited
to) the following:

  Experiment: 
    Quantitative behavioral measurements for systems biology 
    Quantitative microscopy and imaging methods 
    Metabolomic arrays 
    Gene expression arrays 
    Mass spectrometry 
    Pharmacological methods 
    In vitro reconstituted systems 
   
  Theory: 
    Metabolic control theory & biochemical systems theory 
    Biological engineering control theory 
    Stochastic and multiscale simulation 
    Robustness, modularity and evolvability 
    Network structure and dynamics 
    Spatiotemporal systems 
    Optimization methods 
    Bifurcation analysis 
  
  Modeling: 
    Modeling of gene, signal and metabolic networks 
    Novel computational algorithms 
    Software for system biology 
    Standards for systems biology 
    Databases for systems biology 
    Visualisation of networks and dynamics 
    Application of modeling to drug targeting 

Full-length papers submitted to the conference by the deadline
(Aug. 1, 2001) will be reviewed by a panel of experts and judged
on quality, originality, clarity and topical content.  Poster
abstracts submitted to the conference will be accepted as-is.
Accepted papers, along with the abstracts of posters and invited
presentations, will be published in a printed proceedings volume
distributed at the conference.  The full papers and abstracts of
posters and presentations will also be made available online at
http://www.icsb2001.org prior the conference.  In addition,
papers accepted for the conference will be submitted to a special
issue of a journal to be announced.  The papers will be reviewed
separately by the journal's editorial board; a subset of the
papers will be selected for publication as a special issue of the
journal.

Please visit the web site (http://www.icsb2001.org) or contact us
directly (icsb2001 at caltech.edu) for information about format
requirements and submission procedure.
