An alert STKE user sent the editors a letter regarding an upcoming conference that may be of interest to those in the modeling community.

Vanderbilt University Summer Conference

Mathematical Models in Signaling Systems

June 16-18, 2004

Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee

Sponsored by Vanderbilt University, the National Academies Keck Futures Initiative, and AstraZeneca.

This conference will bring together biologists, physicists, mathematicians and computational scientists, to assess the state of the art in quantitative modeling of signal transduction networks. The meeting will identify a set of methods and ideas and trace future directions for this emerging field. In addition, it will provide a reference forum for students and young scientists who are training to take interdisciplinary and systems approaches to signal transduction, pharmacology and cell biology.

Session topics include:
Detailed Local Models of Signaling Pathways
Cellular Models and Spatial Complexity
Experimental Approaches to Understanding Networks
Analysis of Network Architecture

Funded by a $40 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation, the National Academies Keck Futures Initiative, is a 15-year effort to catalyze interdisciplinary inquiry and to enhance communication among researchers, funding agencies, universities, and the general public. The objective of the Futures Initiative is to stimulate interdisciplinary research at the frontiers of scientific inquiry. The Futures Initiative builds on three pillars of vital and sustained research: interdisciplinary encounters that counterbalance specialization and isolation; the identification and exploration of new research topics; and communication that bridges languages, cultures, habits of thought, and institutions. Toward these goals, the multifaceted National Academies Keck Futures Initiative incorporates three core activities each year: Futures conferences, Futures grants, and National Academies Communication Awards.
