Self organization and morphogenesis in biological systems

The Max Planck Society and Nature Cell Biology are pleased to announce the first Ringberg Colloquium on Self-organization and morphogenesis in biological systems
December 3-6, 2006, Schloss Ringberg, Tegernsee, Germany.

The study of the emergence of forms in biology has suffered from a lack of understanding of how dynamic interactions between agents can lead to the emergence of dynamic patterns. This meeting will focus on self-organization and the emergence of form at multiple levels - molecular, organellar, cellular and multicellular levels - covering issues such as self-assembly, reaction-diffusion properties, collective behavior, robustness and modularity. It will have a non-traditional format and will aim to be a highly interactive, discussion-driven meeting with the ultimate goal of stimulating further development of the field.

Application for the Ringberg 2006 meeting titled "Self-organization and morphogenesis in biological systems" is now closed.
