19th Annual Multicell Virtual-Tissue Modeling Online Summer School and Hackathon

When: 28/07/2024 - 11/08/2024
Where: Indiana University, Bloomington
Indiana University, Bloomington. July 28th – August 4th, 2024 (Workshop) and August 9th – August 11th, 2024 (Hackathon)

The 19th Annual Multicell Virtual-Tissue Modeling Online Summer School and Hackathon 2024 will take place between Sunday, July 28th and Sunday August 4th, 2024

The workshop will focus on the basics of building virtual tissue models modeling using CompuCell3D, as well as exploration of more advanced modeling topics using the many features and capabilities of the CompuCell3D software. A two-day model-building Hackathon in which attendees work in teams to build a functioning model of their problem of interest will be hosted on the weekend following the workshop (August 9–11). For first-time participants, attendance in the workshop is required for participation in the Hackathon. Previous workshop attendees or returning hackathon participants may contact us directly for admission into only the hackathon.

AUDIENCE: Mathematical Biologists, Computational Biologists, Experimental Biologists, Medical Scientists, Bioengineers, and Biophysicists, ranging from undergraduates to senior faculty, with a current or potential interest in mechanistic modeling of biological systems. The course covers multicellular modeling, which applies to developmental and tissue biology, tissue engineering, developmental diseases like cancer, in-host modeling of infection and immune response, and tissue-level toxicology. No specific programming or mathematical experience is required.

  • An Introductory Python and Principles of Modeling Tutorial will take place on July 28th, 2024
  • July 29 – August 4: Multicelluar Virtual Tissue Modeling Workshop
  • August 9 – 11: CompuCell3D Model-Building Hackathon

Enrolment is free
Deadline for applications: June 1st, 2023
