Statistical and dynamical models in biology and medicine

October 11-12, 2012, University Stuttgart

This workshop intends to bring together researchers from different research areas such as bioinformatics, biostatistics and systems biology, who are interested in modeling and analysis of biological systems or in the development of statistical methods with applications in biology and medicine.

How to find us

We meet at the lecture hall Room 7.01, Pfaffenwaldring 7, 70569 Stuttgart of the Stuttgart University.

Stuttgart is easily reachable by high-speed train connection from most parts of Germany or by plane. The workshop location is directly opposite from the S-Bahn station "Universität" and can be reached from the Hauptbahnhof via S1-S3 (directions).


You will need to make your own accommodation arrangements.
