ERCIM-ETSI Infinity Initiative: Bio ICT - The Heart in the Computer

2nd Edition of the ERCIM-ETSI Infinity Initiative

Bio ICT - The Heart in the Computer

Sophia Antipolis, France, 2-3 April 2009

The Modelling and Simulation of Life is one of the most exciting and promising research areas with great hopes for humanity.

Thanks to the upcoming ‘Virtual Physiological Human', new environments for predictive, patient specific, more effective and safer healthcare are being developed. Can you imagine, for instance, the benefits of having an ‘e-drug' tested in an ‘e-cell' of an ‘e-patient'?!

To explore Systems Biology supported by advanced Information and Communications Technologies such as Grid Computing,
ERCIM and ETSI are pleased to invite you to the 2009 edition of their joint ‘Infinity Initiative', which will take place in Sophia Antipolis, France, on 2-3 April 2009.

The two organisations will welcome top-level experts who will share their vision of Modelling and Simulation of Life while demonstrating how research and standards, supported by the European Commission, can benefit society and business.
Delegates will include scientists, industry leaders, key EC decision-makers and major players in the field.
ERCIM and ETSI believe it essential that standardisation be considered early in the R&D cycle in order to facilitate maximum creation and development of home and international markets for European industry.

Attendance to the workshop is free and open to non-members of ETSI, upon registration.
