Announcing the COPASI User Workshop 2014 @ Virginia Tech Research Center, Arlington, USA Modelling and Simulation in Systems Biology
July 08 - July 10, 2014 at Virginia Tech Research Center,
Arlington, VA, USA
Led by Pedro Mendes and Stefan Hoops
This workshop is for current or prospective users of the COPASI modeling and simulation package for system biology. The workshop will take place in the USA.
The workshop is directed both at beginners as well as advanced users and there will be sessions directed at each of these groups (in parallel if needed). The workshop will also be an important means for the COPASI development team to collect feedback from users about improving the software.
COPASI is a free, open-source, software package for creating and simulating systems biology models. COPASI runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux and it is a user-friendly software that allows for construction of kinetic models without much knowledge of mathematics. However COPASI is also equipped with advanced algorithms and is a powerful tool for modeling and simulation, with some features that are not available in other simulators. COPASI is available at http://www.copasi.org
The workshop will cover several features of modeling and simulation by using examples of previously published models. The set of topics covered:
