The 2020 q-bio Summer School
July 20-31 2020 @ University of Maryland (College Park, MD, USA)
The 2020 q-bio Conference
July 28-31 2020 @ University of Maryland (College Park, MD, USA)
q-bio is a series of conferences and affiliated summer schools, which aim at advancing predictive modeling of cellular regulation, decision making, formation of response, and other information processing phenomena. The emphasis is on deep theoretical understanding, detailed modeling, and quantitative experimentation directed at understanding the behavior of particular regulatory systems and/or elucidating general principles of cellular information processing. Unlike many biological conferences, which focus on specific model systems, q-bio focuses on understanding of phenomena, which manifest themselves in many biological systems.
For many years, the q-bio Conference took place on the campus of St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Starting in 2015, the conference now changes location from year to year. The q-bio conference took place at: Virginia tech (2015), Vanderbilt University (2016), Rutgers University (2017), Rice University (2018), San Francisco State University (2019). The origin of the term q-bio is explained . A brief history of the conference is available . Past meetings of the q-bio Conference and Summer School can be found .
The theme for q-Bio’2020 is the:
“Convergence of Machine Learning and Quantitative Modeling in Biology”
