The purpose of this second conference of the series is to encourage research in mathematical
modeling in the life sciences with special focus on issues of model
validation and model application in medical and clinical areas.
Modeling in the life sciences often leads
to the conundrum that a) such models need sufficient detail to be able to
represent the array of complex biological and physiological interactions
seen at various functional levels and hence models in this area usually
contain many parameters while b) these models are often difficult to
validate and apply, especially in the clinical setting where non-invasive
or otherwise restricted testing generates only a limited set of data from
which parameters can be estimated. These problems represent an
important challenge to current research.
The topics in this conference will examine
the state of the art in this important area of research and focus on
methods for modeling that address the problems and challenges mentioned
above. Special emphasis will be placed on the problem of effective
clinical application of such complex models.
We are looking forward to welcoming you
in Istanbul Conference on Mathematical Methods and Modeling in
Life Sciences and Biomedicine this coming August.
