The aim of the conference:

Progress in the development of computer technology in the late 20th and early 21st century, introduced into the biology of a fundamentally new research, based on computer technology to work with objects. These include receiving, processing, analysis, classification and identification of biological objects based on their electronic images. There was a computational biology as a science, which operates the electronic images - the images (image) of a biological object. Working with images of biological objects - the fundamental difference between computational biology and bioinformatics from the mathematical modeling of biological processes.

Over 200 years of biology, the problem of creating images of live biological objects has been one of the most "narrow" places. Inability to maintain and further image analysis prevented a complete transition of biology at the adequate mathematical description of its facilities. With the advent of digital images of biological objects biology makes a decisive step on the road "from the words of the figure," which means a new period in relations between biology and mathematics.

The principal new feature is the ability to create images of live biological objects, which opens up the prospect of working with non-invasive biological object. This brings biology to a new level of research, through analysis and image processing and pattern recognition of living objects. A critical component of computational biology is the analysis of images. Development and application of various software for the analysis of the same image - the most reliable way to verify the data.

One of the promising approaches to solving this problem are the methodology for the creation and recognition of virtual images, which is being developed fruitfully in many Russian mathematical schools.

The format of the conference:

This conference aims to "meet" biologists and mathematicians to determine the level of current research and discuss the problems faced by biologists to study the images. The organization of the conference involves more than just listen to talks by leading experts, but also to conduct master classes, in which:

- Biologists will present the primary task of computational biology, the creation, processing, analysis and storage of images of biological objects.
- The developers of the various programs will be able to demonstrate their capabilities to potential customers, partners from various areas of computational biology;

Key issues planned for discussion:

1. The main tasks of computational biology: development and standardization of procedures to create images.
2. Identifying the issues at work with "flat" and three-dimensional objects.
3. Methods and models for representation of biological information.
4. The mathematical theory of acquisition, processing, analysis, recognition and understanding of images of biological objects.
5. Computer graphics and visualization in computational biology.
6. Algorithmic, software and hardware processing of biological information.
7. Pattern recognition in computational biology.
8. Methods for biological information storage and organization of digital archives.
9. Biological methods for searching images on the specified criteria.
