• 8th IFAC Conference on Foundations of Systems Biology in Engineering

    15th – 18th October 2019
    Universitat Politècnica de València
    València, Spain



    Computational and engineering methods are at the core of systems biology, synthetic biology, and systems medicine. The integration of quantitative data from a variety of sources together with model inference and analysis techniques as well as control theory have proven valuable to decipher biological systems ranging from intracellular mechanisms to human disease. 

    FOSBE aims at stimulating discussion and fostering collaborations among scientists, from method to theory oriented engineers to experimental and theoretical biologists, interested or working on systems theory applied to life sciences. Major conference topics are:

    • Modelling of complex biological systems
    • Multi-scale and multi-omics data integration and modelling
    • Network inference and modeling (signaling, regulation, metabolic)
    • Analysis and modelling of stochastic and heterogeneous systems,      
    • Dynamics and control of biological systems
    • Design and control of synthetic biological systems and circuits
    • Systems biology for (red, green, blue and white) biotechnology
    • Systems medicine
    • Synthetic biology
    • Next generation methods and tools for systems and synthetic biology



    FOSBE2019 will feature a varied program, including plenary lectures, invited keynote presentations, and both contributed and invited technical sessions.


    The conference Foundations of Systems Biology and Engineering (FOSBE) is jointly organized by the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) and the CACHE Corporation on a rotating basis.

    In 2019, the 8th FOSBE will be organized by IFAC, sponsored by the Technical Committee on Biosystems and Bioprocesses (8.4).

    It will be held at the Universitat Politècnica de València in València, Spain, on 15 – 18 October 2019.
