May 15-16 Joint workshop: “Modelling of metabolic systems with differential equations “

Location: Eindhoven University of Technology

Dear workshop participants, 
Below you can find some details about the program (tentative) and travel information for the RESOLVE workshop ‘Modelling of metabolic systems with differential equations ‘, May 15-16, in Eindhoven ( ).

RESOLVE workshop program


Day 1 (Wed. May 15, 2013)

  • 9:30 Coffee
  • 10:00 Opening
  • 10:15 Lecture 1: Modelling with differential equations
  • 11:15 Coffee break
  • 11:30 Computer practical 1: Simulating differential equation models
  • 13:00 lunch
  • 14:00 Lecture 2: Parameter estimation
  • 15:00 Computer practical 2: Parameter estimation in practice
  • 16:00 Pitch talks by participants
  • 16:45 Discussion about possibilities to model data provided by the participants. Select cases that are interesting to be explored in more detail.
  • 17:30 Drinks
  • 19:00 Workshop dinner


Day 2 (Thu. May 16, 2013)

  • 9:00 Inquiry of observations and (remaining) questions of day 1
  • 9:15 Lecture 3: Introducing ADAPT
  • 10:15 Coffee break
  • 10:30 Computer practical 3: ADAPT
  • 12:30 lunch
  • 13:30 Computer practical 4:
    ‐ Option 1 Work with your own data
    ‐ Option 2 Continue working on previous practicals
  • 15:30 Wrap‐up discussion
  • 16:00 Closure


We would like to ask you to do some ‘homework’:

– Prepare a 5 minute ‘pitch talk’ describing your view on the interaction between experimental work and modeling in your (sub)project.

– Bring experimental data that you think could be used for modeling. If possible, we prefer if you could send us your data in advance by email. This will allow us to prepare examples of how your data could be integrated.

One talk and one dataset per RESOLVE partner is sufficient. So, in case multiple persons from the same institute participate, they can join forces.

Currently there are 15 participants from 6 partners. In case you know someone who wants to join, this is still possible.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Best regards, on behalf of the organisers,


Matlab will be used in the computer practicals. Computers with Matlab will be available. Prior experience with Matlab is not required.
