                      Heidelberg, Germany









Dear Colleagues,


Registration is open now for the second COMBINE meeting taking place in 
Heidelberg (Germany), September 3-7, 2011. COMBINE 2011 will be hosted by the 
Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) and will follow immediately 
after the 12th International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB2011). 


If you are planning to join COMBINE 2011, please register and submit your 
abstracts as soon as possible using the following form:




The deadline for early bird registration is July 15th, 2011. Attendees are 
responsible for arranging their own accommodations. We urge you to make your 
hotel bookings as soon as possible. Hotels fill early. Information on hotels 
can be found on the meeting website: 





The Computational Modeling in Biology Network (COMBINE) is an initiative to 
coordinate the development of the various community standards and formats in 
systems biology and related fields (http://co.mbine.org/ <http://co.mbine.org/> 
). In 2010, the systems biology standards community inaugurated a new, broader 
series of meetings to replace, among other events, individual SBML, SBGN, and 
BioPAX meetings, and create a common platform for allied standardization 
efforts. The annual COMBINE meeting is a workshop-style event with oral 
presentations, posters and breakout sessions. It provides an opportunity for 
the different communities to meet and discuss their standardization efforts, 
with the aim of working more closely together to ensure smooth interoperability 
between the standards.


COMBINE 2011 will include sessions about encoding biological pathway semantics, 
encoding mathematical model semantics, visual representation, interoperability, 
model simulation and analysis, tools and databases applying the standards, and 
similar topics. We will provide a more detailed agenda in the near future. 
Please refer to the meeting website for the session schedule and detailed 
information: http://co.mbine.org/events/COMBINE_2011 


Oral presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts. Abstracts are 
welcome for posters and talks addressing topics such as the various standards 
encompassed by COMBINE (BioPax, SBGN, SBML), associated standardization efforts 
such as MIRIAM, SED-ML and the Systems Biology Ontology (SBO), and related 
standardization efforts like CellML or NeuroML, as well as for presentations of 
software systems using these standards.


We hope to see you in Heidelberg!
