The recent explosion in the understanding of the strongly linked, multiple-scale processes that determine the advancement of cancer has given rise to new and useful mathematical models of tumor development.

The meeting will facilitate communication between modelers and experimentalists. It is a specialized, one-week workshop focusing on approaches to the mechanisms of tumor initiation and progression.

Conference themes will include Angiogenesis, Microcirculation, Invasion, and Metastasis
