DARPA Workshop on State-Dependent Delays in Regulatory Networks

March 2 - 3, 2006
DIMACS Center, CoRE Building, Rutgers University

Tim Buchman, Washington University, buchman@wustl.edu
Jon Lorsch, John Hopkins University, jlorsch@jhmi.edu
Konstantin Mischaikow, Georgia Institute of Technology, mischaik@math.gatech.edu
This workshop is an integral part of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency's (DARPA) Fundamental Laws of Biology program and is presented under the auspices of the DIMACS/BioMaPS/MB Center Special Focus on Information Processing in Biology.

This special focus is jointly sponsored by the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS), the Biological, Mathematical, and Physical Sciences Interfaces Institute for Quantitative Biology (BioMaPS), and the Rutgers Center for Molecular Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry (MB Center).

Workshop Program:

The first day will consist of introductory talks. In particular, the lectures of Cooper and Lorsch are aimed at the mathematicians and the talks of Chow and Mallet-Paret are aimed at the biologists. These presentations will point towards common ground necessary to understand the challenges shared by the biologists and mathematicians.

The second day will consist of short informal presentations by some of the invited participants.
