	SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS - IPCAT '97

		SECOND INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON 
	    INFORMATION PROCESSING IN CELLS AND TISSUES
		  	     IPCAT '97
		SHEFFIELD, UK, September 1 - 4, 1997




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 '97 will seek to 
further the meaningful dialogue and exchangeof ideas started at IPCAT '95 
between biologists, physicists, computer scientists and mathematicians.
