***Special Session on Modeling and Simulation Methods for Systems Biology and Systems Medicine***
hosted by CIBB 2017 <http://co2.unica.it/cibb2017/>, 14th International Conference on Computational Intelligence methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics

7-9 September 2017, Cagliari, Italy

Paper Submission Deadline: 4 June 2017 12 june 2017

Systems Biology deals with the analysis of natural systems at different scales of complexity, requiring completely different modeling frameworks and computational methods. Given that Systems Biology approaches are becoming well established, the challenge is now to apply the developed techniques towards the definition of personalized models in order to identify individually tailored drugs and treatments; i.e. to realize the Personalized Medicine paradigm. The scope of this special session is to bring together researchers involved in the development of methods applied to the fields of Systems Biology and Systems Medicine. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
analysis of robustness of cellular networks 

biomedical model parameterization
cancer progression models
clinical image analysis
emergent properties in complex biological systems 

flux balance analysis 

metabolic engineering 

metabolic pathway analysis 

model verification and refinement methods 

models of neural activity
multi­scale modelling and simulation of biological systems 

parameter estimation methods
personalized models
reverse engineering of reaction networks 

software tools for systems biology 

spatio­temporal modelling and simulation of biological systems

Papers due: 4 June 2017 12 june 2017
Acceptance: 22 June 2017 5 july 2017
Registration due: 17 July 2017
Camera-ready: 22 July 2017

Authors of accepted short papers (4-6 pages) will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a post-conference monograph, which is planned to be published  in the Springer series of Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI). 

Best papers will be invited to a special issue of an international scientific journal (such as BMC Bioinformatics, as in the latest editions).
