Information networks in biological systems - 2023

CENTURI Conference 2023 - CSM

Each year, CENTURI gathers leading scientists from all over the world to tackle interdisciplinary and contemporary challenges in biology, physics, mathematics and computer science. CENTURI 2023 Scientific meeting will focus on how information networks underlie the organisation and dynamics of biological systems with examples in the fields of cell and developmental biology, neuroscience, immunology and social behaviour.

Research in the past couple of decades have shown that biological information can be encoded not only biochemically but also in the mechanics of a system. Length and time scales of a system can emerge from cross-talk between its physical and biochemical properties. Moreover, the geometry of the space in which mechano-chemical information flows is itself informative: networks of information are spatially defined, which may dictate how molecules, cells and organisms self-organise. This conference will bring together a diverse set of scientists in biology, physics and computer science to discuss these questions.

Physics of Living Matter 16 - 2022

Physics of Living Matter 16 - 2022

The PLM series started 15 years ago from an interest to promote the interface between the Life and Physical Sciences in Cambridge.

Over the years, PLM has grown from a local meeting to a popular international event that attracts interdisciplinary scientists from all around the world. Since 2018, a new partner has joined PLM: the Turing Centre for Living Systems (CENTURI, Aix-Marseille University, France) and the 2018 PLM symposium took place in Marseille. Registration for the  conference in Marseille will give you video access to the one in Cambridge and vice versa.

This year, the conference has been divided into two parts:

  • September 27 & 28 in France : organized by CENTURI, this part of the event will take place at the Palais du Pharo, in Marseille, with an online access for Cambridge participants.
  • September 29 & 30 in England : organized by Cambridge University, this part of the event will take place in Cambridge, with an online access for Marseille participants.
