In view of the upcoming workshop, more and more people are gathering to the program. This includes eg. Meesoon Ha from KAIST, Matteo Palassini (Barcelona), Joachim Krug, and Chin-Kun Hu, Academia Sinica, Taipei, and so forth.
The early week has seen on Monday the Nobel Forum talk of Massimo Vergassola on Biological Strategies of Motility and further today some biophysics -oriented ones by Krug and Heiko Rieger (Dynamics of microbial evolution, and, Angiogenesis and vascular network modeling in a growing tumor, respectively). The program is of course a bit heavy with two daily talks, but maybe this is a good practice for the workshop?
