Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are pleased to invite you to
submit papers and proposals for invited sessions to the 
6th International Conference on Foundations of Systems Biology in Engineering 
(FOSBE 2016), which will take place in the historical city of 
Magdeburg, Germany, October 9-12, 2016. 

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 in or working on systems thinking applied 
to life sciences. Major conference topics are:

●  Modelling of complex biological systems 
●  Multi­scale and multi­omics data integration and modelling 
●  Network interference and modeling (signaling, regulation, metabolic) 
●  Analysis and modeling 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 

FOSBE 2016 will take place in the historical city of Magdeburg, Germany, 
at the Elbe river. Magdeburg and the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt have 
many historical sights to visit. It is often called the birth cradle of German 
history and culture.
