June 1-2, 2006, Murcia, Spain

The major objective of this Symposium is to point out the importance of Systems Biology in describing a biological system. Biological systems consist of a large number of heterogeneous components interacting selectively with other components in the system. These components must be connected in a proper way, so that an entire system can be functional. Precise molecular models are required to represent and understand biological systems, opening a broad field of applications. Thus, the exchange of information and experience in research and close communication between international participants will help identify future needs and new aspects in the use of this new scientific field. An intense feedback between fundamentals and applications of bioprocess and biomedicine research will be stimulated.


The Conference will be held in the City of Murcia, 40 km form the Mediterranean coast. The nearest airports are the International Airport of Alicante and the Airport of Murcia, located at 50 and 40 km, respectively, from Murcia.
