Modeling biological phenomena have nowadays received more and more attention from biologists. Even though designing realistic models is still a long and complex process, models help biologists in many ways: during their development, modelers asks naive questions about the biological process, questions that can be of interest to deeply understand the studied system ; when developed, the model can be used first to fully understand all the underlying processes of the studied system by giving access to tools, data and visualization impossible to acquire in a biology lab ; once finalized, models can be used as a tool to predict experiments, optimize protocols, etc.

In this workshop, computational models applied to a wide range of applications in biology, from the embryogenesis to the morphogenesis of living beings, organs and tissues, will be presented. Invited speakers from France and abroad will present their work in this area of expertize. Submitted work on simulation and modeling of biological processes (of any kind) are welcome and will be considered for oral and/or poster presentations.
