The 18th conference on Computational Methods in Systems Biology (CMSB 2020) will take place on the 23rd to 25th September 2020 in Konstanz, Germany. Its aim is to bring together researchers from across biological, mathematical, computational, and physical sciences who are interested in the study, modelling, simulation, advanced analysis, and design of biological systems.
CMSB 2020 is hosted at the University of Konstanz. Since its foundation in 1966, the University of Konstanz has distinguished itself through its top-level research, excellence in teaching and studies, international diversity and interdisciplinary collaboration. This visionary founding principle is even embedded in its architecture: the short distances and interlinked buildings of the campus university sustain an environment that facilitates communication, interlinks scientific disciplines and advances a culture of creative collaboration. Situated along the lake of Konstanz and viewing the Alps, with its roots back in ancient times, the City of Konstanz became famous for hosting the largest 4-year long ‘conference’ 600 years ago: the Council of Constance. You can still sense the atmosphere from its historical past in nearly all parts of the old town. Today, Konstanz is known for its university vibe and high quality of life, as a tourist and business destination.
