Jena Life Science Forum 2010

23 – 27 August 2010, Jena

JLSFFollowing an initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the Frege Centre for Structural Sciences organises the Jena Life Science Forum (JLSF). The JLSF is an international scientific forum meeting regularly to discuss pioneering topics and issues in fundamental biological research that can be expected to shape life sciences in the future.

The second meeting took place in Jena from 23 to 27 August 2010. Scientists from natural, cultural, formal, and engineering sciences met to present their research projects and discuss their findings related to “The Molecular Language of Life”.

11th International Conference on Membrane Computing (CMC11)

24 – 27 August 2010, Jena

CMC11More than 50 participants from 18 countries joined the 11th International Conference on Membrane Computing (CMC11) in Jena. The initiator of this scientific discipline, the mathematician Gheorghe Păun, opened the conference with his lecture.

Membrane computing is an area of computer science aiming to abstract computing ideas and models from the structure and the functioning of living cells. Taking the cue from nature’s hard- and software, the field deals with CMC11_audiencemembrane systems that are distributed and parallel algebraic models processing multisets of objects in a localised manner. From a systems biological point of view, membrane systems provide a discrete modelling approach to describe biological reaction systems composed of interconnected membranes. Each membrane delimits a spatial region in which chemical reactions can occur.

The conference was supported by the DFG and the Jena Centre for Bioinformatics at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena. Further information, including a picture gallery and the conference proceedings, is available at http://cmc11.uni-jena.de/.
