The COMBINE Meeting celebrates its 10th anniversary!

25. June 2019

The “Computational Modeling in Biology” Network (COMBINE) was founded ten years ago as an initiative to coordinate the development of community standards and formats in systems biology, synthetic biology and related fields. For the 10th anniversary, around 100 network members will meet at the Studio Villa Bosch in Heidelberg from 15-19 July 2019.

COMBINE 2019 is a workshop-style event with invited lectures, including several top-class keynotes, presentations and posters, but also leaves enough time for interactive formats such as breakout sessions. This year’s meeting will also include an EU-STANDS4PM workshop on Thursday. Topics of the meeting range from standards for personalized medicine and systems medicine, model modeling approaches, data exchange, reproducibility of research results, and management to data visualization.

The meeting is organized by international members of the network, including Martin Golebiewski and Wolfgang Müller from the Scientific Databases and Visualization (SDBV) group at HITS and Dagmar Waltemath from the University Medicine Greifswald. More information:

About HITS

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
