V National Conference BIFI 2011


The V National Congress of the Institute for Biocomputation and Physics of Complex Systems (BIFI)  will take place at the "Río Ebro" (Actur) Campus of the University of Zaragoza (Spain), on February 2-4, 2011. 

The aim of the Congress is to give BIFI members a chance to disseminate their work and strengthen existing collaborations or establish new ones, and also to foster collaborations with invited researchers from other Institutions, in Spain and abroad.

To this end, the format of the Congress will include plenary sessions in the morning, with invited and contributed talks, as well as short outlines of the progress in each research line of the Institute, providing the audience with an introduction on what will be discussed in the related  workshops. The latter will run, in the afternoon, as three parallel sessions,  devoted to Biophysics/Biochemistry, Complex Networks and Dynamical Systems, and Complex Materials and Transport Phenomena. The program also includes presentations and tutorials about the experimental and computational facilities of the institute.

Speakers are asked to prepare their presentation material in English, while the talk can be given in English or Spanish. Researchers from any Institution are warmly invited to attend the meeting; partial refunding for travel/accomodation expenses might be available (but will depend on financial resources) for BIFI members from outside Zaragoza
