International Workshop on Energy and Information Transfer in Biological Systems:
How physics could enrich biological understanding
18th to 22nd september 2002 in Santa Tecla, Sicily, Italy
We have the pleasure to announce the International Workshop on "Energy and Information Transfer in Biological Systems - how physics could enrich biological understanding", that will take place from 18th to 22nd september 2002 in Santa Tecla, Sicily, Italy
This workshop will constitute a forum aimed at evaluating the potentials and outlooks of a modern physics approach, both experimental and theoretical, to understand and describe biological processes. It will involve eminent scientists from all the different fields concerned and will contribute to the formation of a scientific community interested in the research area of collective behaviour in biological systems.
The workshop will take place at the Santa Tecla Hotel, 12 km north of Catania, Sicily. Catania has an international airport with frequent connections to Rome, Milan and other international european airports. The Santa Tecla Hotel is located directly on the Mediterranean Sea in a comfortable and spectacular environment. The hotel has a large lecture hall and many smaller sites for discussions and informal meetings. At the time of the Meeting, the weather is ideal in Sicily (about 25 °C ). The prices of hotel rooms and other facilities can be found on the Workshop web-site. We will take care of your reservation at registration time, but please, hurry, as the Hotel as a limited amount of rooms .
We would like to invite young researchers from Europe and from non-european countries to submit an application to the meeting. The number of participants will be limited to about 100. Please circulate this announcement to potentially interested young researchers, who may not yet be on our lists. Applicants are welcome to contact the organising committee by email at “email@example.com” for application, informations and suggestions.
