On **November 12-14, 2019** the CMSA will be hosting a workshop on Dynamics and Randomness. The workshop will be held in **room G10 of the CMSA, located at 20 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA.**

Biological cells are the fundamental units of life, and predictive modeling of cellular dynamics is essential for understanding a myriad of biological processes and functions. Rapid advances in technologies have made it possible for biologists to measure many variables and outputs from complex molecular and cellular networks with various inputs and environmental conditions. However, such advances are far ahead of the development of mathematical theory, models and methods needed to secure a deep understanding of how high-level robust behaviors emerge from the interactions in complex structures, especially in dynamic and stochastic environments. This workshop will bring together mathematicians and biological scientists involved in developing mathematical theories and methods for understanding, predicting and controlling dynamic behavior of molecular and cellular networks. Particular emphasis will be placed on efforts directed towards discovering underlying biological principles that govern function, adaptation and evolution, and on the development of associated mathematical theories.

Organizers: Jeremy Gunawardena (Harvard) and Ruth Williams (University of California, San Diego)
