Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the following ECCB'14 workshop on "Logical 
Modelling and Analysis of Cellular Networks" that will take place 
Saturday, 6th September, 2014, in Strasbourg, France.

Since the seminal publications of Stuart Kauffman and René Thomas about 
40 years ago, logical modelling has been increasingly used to model the 
dynamical behaviour of biological regulatory networks. However, behind 
the common denomination "logical modelling", computational biologists 
are using different formalisations (Boolean, multilevel, deterministic, 
stochastic, etc.) and have developed various methods and tools, which 
might be somewhat difficult to choose from to address specific 
biological questions.
This workshop aims at providing an extensive and organised overview of 
recent developments that render possible the modelling and the analysis 
of large cellular networks, encompassing various signalling pathways, 
sophisticate transcriptional networks, as well as novel regulatory 
mechanisms (e.g. regulatory effects of miRNA, epigenetic regulations,etc.).

Invited speakers will refer to applications dealing with the control of 
cell proliferation, cell differentiation and reprogramming, embryonic 
development, immune response, and cancer drug resistance. They will 
emphasise the biological insights gained with logical modelling in 
general, as well as by using specific analysis methods.

_*Three to four slots have been reserved for contributed talks by young 
researchers (PhD, postdocs), with limited support (registration waiving).*_

*Key dates:*
   - *Abstract submission deadline: May 24th, 2014*
   -*Application for support: July 29th, 2014*
   - Workshop: September 6th, 2014

*Contact:*  lmacn.eccb14 at biologie.ens.fr

*Detailed information*: http://www.eccb14.org/program/workshops/lmacn

Note that this workshop is coupled with the tutorial "Computational 
Tools to Define and Analyse Logical Models of Cellular Networks", on the 
following day (Sunday, September 7th, 2014, 

Looking forward to seeing you in Strasbourg,

For the organizers,
Diana Marek
