Networks are pervading modern biology. Protein networks, transcriptional networks, metabolic networks, are being explored both at the experimental level and at the computational and theoretical level. New theories and computational tools for analysis, modeling and visualization of networks are being developed. This workshop will offer participants a clear and detailed picture of the current state-of-the-art in this area.
The workshop will be divided in four sessions, starting with a general overview on the structure and dynamics of complex networks. The second session will focus on the analysis of complex networks. The third session will focus on methods to model networks and their dynamic behaviour. The fourth session will focus on experimental and computational method to infer complex networks from experimental data.

The workshop is intended for all those scientisits, including graduate students and postdocs, interested to learn about the current state-of-the-art of networks in biology, to understand what are the open research questions to be solved, and what are the tools that can be used to analyse a biological problem from the 'network' point of view. The workshop will appeal both to scientists from engineering, physics and computer science, and from biological background.
