9th International CellML Workshop

The 9th International CellML Workshop will be held 13 & 14 April 2015 at the Goldie Room on Waiheke Island, Auckland, New Zealand as a satellite meeting of the 2015 Cardiac Physiome Workshop.

The annual International CellML Workshop is an opportunity for scientists to present and discuss ongoing work related to physiological modelling and simulation with particular focus on model and data exchange & reuse, archiving, and versioning and related software support. This year the CellML Workshop is being held as a satellite meeting of the 2015 Cardiac Physiome Workshop, to be held in Auckland's Viaduct Harbour April 8-10. 

While the primary emphasis of this workshop is on CellML, work from across the VPH & Physiome Project and computational systems biology communities are covered (e.g., RICORDOSED-MLPhysiome RepositoryCOMBINE, and the Virtual Physiological Rat). In addition to participants from the Auckland Bioengineering Institute, the Maurice Wilkins Centre, and the University of Auckland, previous workshops have attracted delegates from the UK, USA, Japan, Norway, France, Poland, Belgium, and Germany.

This year the workshop will feature the following topics.
