We are sorry but we reached the maximum number of participants and we cannot accept more (26 June, 2015).

The riddles of life challenge us to invent new paradigms. With a focus on simple conceptual and quantitative models, this meeting aims to strengthen the inventiveness in modelling biology across all scales. Speakers are encouraged to present new ideas, theories, and inspiring thoughts. The topics include themes from dynamics of gene expression and regulation, spatio-temporal dynamics, epigenetics, bet-hedging, evolution and the many seemingly different solutions that life has found to solve a given type of problem. The challenge is to find out what we can do with all the many things we have learned from biology, and how this can be used to improve our thinking.

Although the formal outline of the meeting is a summers chool, we plan to have many relatively short talks (25 min each), thereby assuring both diversity and ample time for informal discussions outside the formal schedule.

The meeting marks the end of our current funding for the Center for Models of Life, an interdisciplinary center devoted to theory building inspired by the biological model organisms of phage, E.coli, yeast and simple mammalian sub-systems.

Students and other interested scientists are encouraged to participate, with a cost of 600 Euro for the full school including food and lodging. Limited funding is available for a waiver of this cost. Total participation is limited to 90 lecturers and students. Posters are very welcome.

For application contact Hanne N. Christensen (norgaard at before june 1’st 2015.
