    The Second International Conference on Systems Biology
    ------------------------------------------------------

            The California Institute of Technology
                      Pasadena, CA, USA

                      November 4-7, 2001

                   http://www.icsb2001.org

    Poster abstract submission deadline: September 2, 2001

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.  Technical sessions will beginn
on Monday morning.  The sessions will feature keynote
speeches and invited presentations by world-renowned researchers,
along with afternoon poster sessions and evening social
activities.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
----------------

Dr. Alfred G. Gilman -- Nobel laureate and head of the Alliance
                        for Cellular Signaling

Dr. David Botstein   -- Chair of the Dept. of Genetics at Stanford

Dr. Adam Arkin       -- Assistant Professor of Biophysical Chemistry 
                        and Bioengineering at LBL/UCBerkeley
