In silico oncology is expected to significantly improve the effectiveness of treatment, since reliable computer predictions could suggest the optimal treatment scheme(s) and schedules for each separate case. This workshop is an opportunity for both shaping and advancing the new discipline. There also is a call for papers on the topic.

This year’s workshop will be dedicated to Aristotle and special focus will be on the importance of the clinical multiscale data - representing the Aristotelian observable reality - for the advancement of in silico oncology.

The close proximity of the workshop's venue to the newly excavated and open to the public Aristotle’s Lyceum  is expected to act as a special source of inspiration. A one hour session of the workshop dedicated mainly to this discussion will be held (weather permitting) on the very site of Aristotle’s Peripatetic School.

You can find the Call for Papers and more info about the workshop on the workshop website.
