This year’s program takes place at the Oregon Convention Center (777 NE Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd, Portland, OR 97232), across the river from downtown Portland and connected by light rail to downtown and the airport.
The 2016 meeting will offer a streamlined program with lots of time for networking, posters, and recreation. There will be seven plenary sessions, nine sets of three concurrent sessions, and three poster sessions.
The program will include a mix of established and young investigators working on pathogenic and symbiotic associations using diverse biological systems. More than 50 percent of the plenary speakers did not speak at the last IS-MPMI meeting in 2014, ensuring new ideas and fresh viewpoints.
On behalf of the International Society for Systems Biology (ISSB) we will host the 17th edition of the International Conference on Systems Biology in Barcelona, Spain.
We will bring exciting speakers from around the world to interact with the global and local systems biology community – sharing ideas, discussing results and debating on the future of this exciting and fast-evolving field. A number of themes will be covered, including: fundamentals of modelling networks, circuits and pathways, spatial and multicellular systems, image-driven systems biology, evolution, noise and decision-making in single cells, systems biology of disease and immunology, and personalised medicine.
