Computational Biophysics and Analysis of Biomedical Data IV

Preliminary program

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

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

The rapid development of optical and non-optical techniques for visualization and measurement results in considerable 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 the high performance at reasonable costs. However, it requires the adaptation of existent and the development of new computational algorithms for filtering and spatial-temporal patterns detection.

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 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 mean that
the contributions based on experimental studies showing the need for
computational support are also appreciated.


The scientific program will include but is not restricted to the following topic areas:
