Optics and the Brain
12 Apr 2021 - 15 Apr 2021 • Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Organizer:
The Optical Society (OSA)
Abstract:
Optics offers a unique toolkit for multiscale imaging and manipulating the living and intact brain. New strategies provide optical measures of neural function and tools such as optogenetics enables the control of cellular function with light. Novel methods also enable unraveling the molecular, genetic, structural and connective properties of the nervous system from super-resolution to whole organism scales. By bringing together an international group of leading engineers, optical and medical scientists, biologists, chemists, neuroscientists and physicians, the meeting reflects this topic’s highly interdisciplinary area of research. This conference will bring together researchers working in all aspects of optics in the brain in both model systems and humans and will serve as a forum for discussion of existing and emerging techniques as well as future directions capable of shedding new light on the healthy and diseased brain.

Biophysics at the Dawn of Exascale Computers
24 May 2021 - 28 May 2021 • Hamburg, Germany
Organizer:
Biophysical Society (BPS)
Abstract:
Molecular biophysics over the next decade will be dominated by three technologies - electron microscopy and tomography, X-ray lasers, and machine learning. Taking us a step closer towards capturing bimolecular assemblies in action, these technologies together with molecular simulations are delivering not only static structures, but movies of cellular functions. One common denominator to this remarkable progress is the advent of graphic processor unit (GPU), and compute-intensive resources over the past decade. Already leveraging parallel capabilities, areas of diffraction data and single-particle image processing, hybrid modeling, molecular dynamics and free-energy simulations, and drug design and discovery are frontrunners in leveraging the prowess of exascale computing.

Mathematics of the Cell: Integrating Signaling, Transport and Mechanics
17 Oct 2021 - 22 Oct 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
An aspiration of modern cell biology is to 1) understand how the various cellular components assemble into a cell and 2) understand how cell function arises from the interaction of those components. How do cells form with a specific shape and size? How do they divide and how do cells decide where to divide? How does transport occur in the crowded cellular environment inside a cell? Mathematics has a role in helping answer such questions. Understanding of these phenomena also presents the opportunity to discover new deep mathematical concepts, particularly because it involves chemistry and physics acting across length-scales, from molecules to cells and tissues. BIRS has played a foundational role in the development of what has become known as Mathematical Biology of the Cell, by hosting regular workshops that have helped reveal principles behind how cellular components assemble and organize themselves to form discrete structures, distinct cellular compartments, and form patterns. The underlying goal of this meeting of interdisciplinary and diverse scientists is to understand the fundamental principles connecting cell signaling, geometry, transport, and mechanics.

Abstract:
The BRAIN topical meeting specifically focuses on cutting-edge research and innovative new tools and techniques that seek to increase fundamental knowledge about the brain and nervous system. The USA BRAIN Initiative and the European Human Brain Project have identified the urgent need for new technologies that can probe the working brain across all levels from single neurons to entire behaving organisms. Optics offers a unique toolkit for multiscale imaging the living and intact brain, while new genetic labeling strategies provide optical contrast to neural function and optogenetics permits the control of cellular function with light. By bringing together an international group of leading engineers, optical and medical scientists, biologists, chemists and physicians, the meeting reflects this topic’s highly interdisciplinary area of research. The BRAIN meeting will bring together researchers working in all aspects of optics in the brain and will serve as a forum for discussion of existing and emerging techniques as well as future directions capable of shedding new light on the healthy and diseased brain.
