University of Rochester Eastman Quadrangle

Symposium Goals: To promote the use of computational modeling approaches in immunology research and exchange research ideas and information on computational immunology between the NIAID Modeling Immunity for Biodefense (MIB) network and other related networks/investigators.

Target Group: Immunologists, computational biologists, mathematicians and biostatisticians who have research interests in applying mathematical modeling and computational biology approaches to immunology research, particularly as related to use of high-dimensional, complex data.

Graduate students and postdocs are eligible for travel award and poster award. Travel award application is due on Apr 15, 2012. Awards are restricted to travel within USA ONLY.

Early registration deadline is May 13, 2012. Poster abstract submission deadline is June 1, 2012.
