Workshop on Dynamics of Biological Networks, Edinburgh 25-26 June

Dynamics of biological networks workshop, Informatics Forum, University of Edinburgh, 25-26 June 2013

Workshop and registration website

Dynamical models of biological systems have received considerable attention in the machine learning and systems biology community. Two problems which have received particular attention are the inference of network structures from data (structure learning problem) and the identification of parameters and functional forms describing the dynamic of the systems given a networks structure. This workshop will bring together experts in dynamical systems, network inference and systems biology to define and address the outstanding challenges in the field, as well as presenting the latest research.
