International Conference on Biological Aging

Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to a Conference on Biological Aging from the Perspective of Physics, Information Science and Life Sciences, that will take place at Jacobs University Bremen from July 16-20, 2018.

From the scientific point of view, aging is a concept that has been studied from seemingly dissimilar perspectives within biology and physics. Biological aging can be considered as a result of evolution, and has impacted fields like neuroscience, genetics and systems biology. More recently, aging has come to be regarded as a disease that should be cured like other diseases. In contrast to these approaches, when aging is discussed from the perspective of physics, the focus is usually on physical aging of materials like glasses or soft matter rather than of living systems.....
