Abstract: This mini-symposium aims to bring together researchers focusing on using modeling and numerical approach to study complex biological systems including (but not limited to) cell signaling pathways, complex bio-fluids, biofilms, cell polarization, developmental and cell biology, and stem cells, and etc. Such complex biological systems in general consist of multiple interacting components that exhibit complicated temporal and spatial dynamics. Furthermore, feedback, nonlinearities and multiple time and length scales often make such systems extremely difficult to describe, model or predict. The invited speakers will discuss the challenges of modeling such complex systems, introduce new computational techniques to simulate them and, where possible, present novel analytical techniques to extract meaningful information.
