Computational Biophysics and Analysis of Biomedical Data

Preliminary program

The mathematical and computational modeling are the powerful tools for modern
research. Together with advanced experimental techniques, data analysis and
mining they provide a solid basis for both experimental and theoretical
studies in biophysics and medicine.

Recently introduced term "Biosimulation" incorporates the variety of
mathematical modelling approaches and techniques and becomes the powerful tool
for biomedical research and drug development. It implies different modelling
levels ranging from phenomenological one to detailed description of
biochemical processes and used both to reveal basic physical mechanisms and to
predict the quantitative features of physiological processes in living
systems.

The rapid development of optical visualization and measurement techniques in
biological systems resulted in significant increase of attributed flows of raw
data. Thus there is the need for continuous grows of capability of data
processing, both quantitative (computational performance) and qualitative
(adaptive and problem-specific data pre-processing). The GPU (graphics
processor unit) based techniques of parallel computing becomes the popular
solution providing high performance at a reasonable costs. However, it
requires the adoption of existent and the development of new computational
algorithms for filtering and spatial-temporal patterns detection and data
mining.

The advanced data processing is now capable to provide the insight in
structural features of source system, such as interaction of internal rhythms,
coupling between system’s components, or casualty of events. In this field,
the development, validation and application of both temporal and spatial
complexity measures is highly relevant, such as multimodal wavelet analysis,
chirplets, fractality measurement, etc.

The main goal of the Conference is to provide the platform for discussion of
the listed topics in the framework of Saratov Fall Meeting with special
attention to task-specific, rather than generic aspects. The later means that
the contributions based on experimental studies showing the need for
computational support are also appreciated.
