Interdisciplinary symposium NETWORKS IN BIOLOGY

Networks are a common theme in all biological processes. Since the organization and structure and thus the function of biological networks can rarely be studied directly, different specialized approaches such as mathematical modelling, empirical studies or the combination of those are being developed in various biological disciplines. The main aim of the ‘NETWORKS IN BIOLOGY’ symposium is to bring researchers of different research fields together to reveal commonalities of different biological networks and overlaps in the used methodology.


The symposium will take place October, 12th-13th 2016 at the Georg-August-University Göttingen, Germany.


Invited Speakers:

DAMIEN FARINE (MPI for Ornithology, Konstanz, Germany)

MARC TIMME (MPI for Dynamics & Self-Organization, Göttingen, Germany)

JOHANNES JAEGER (Konrad-Lorenz Institute, Vienna, Austria)

STEFAN SCHEU (Department Animal Ecology, Göttingen, Germany)

ARNE TRAULSEN (MPI for Evolutionary Biology, Plön, Germany)

LAUREN BRENT (Centre Research Animal Behaviour, Uni Exeter, UK)
