SASB 2014 - 5th International Workshop on Static Analysis and Systems Biology



VenueMunich, Germany Germany



Topics/Call fo Papers

The Fifth International Workshop on Static Analysis and Systems Biology (SASB 2014)
SAS workshop, 10 September 2014, Munich, Germany.
SASB aims at promoting discussions and collaborations between biologists (modelers), computer scientists and applied-mathematicians interested in designing or using methods to reduce the complexity of modeling, simulating or analyzing biological systems.
Static analysis refers to a wide range of techniques for characterizing and identifying important features from a model without its exhaustive execution. Static analysis is used for helping the design of models, the test of models against experimental data, and the prediction of behaviors.
Static analyzes can involve, for instance, modeling paradigms, such as rule-based modeling, that ease the characterization of the behaviors of a model; abstractions that prevent a full exploration of the potential concrete behaviors; algebraic representations and transformations that ease the computation of various properties; model reductions, that decrease the dimension of a model while preserving important behaviors; characterization of dynamical properties with respect to the topology of the model; etc.
The program of SASB 2014 will consist mainly of presentations of refereed papers and invited talks. Contributions are welcomed on all aspects about the use of static analysis methods in Systems Biology, including, but not limited to:
static analysis frameworks,
model reduction,
model decomposition,
algebraic representations,
state space compaction,
abstractions of dynamics,
link between topology and dynamics,
languages for compact description of biological models,
modeling or data integration experiences using static analysis,
informal methods (that could be candidate to formalization),
challenges for tackling complexity of biological models.
Please visit the submission website.
All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by the program committee.
Submitted papers should not exceed 12 pages including bibliography, and follow the ENTCS guidelines. Submitted papers may include, in addition, an appendix containing technical details, which reviewers may read or not, at their discretion.
Papers must be written and presented in English, and describe original work that does not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings.
There is preliminary approval to publish the workshop proceedings in ENTCS.
