The celebrated work of Hodgkin and Huxley in the last century provides an excellent example that physiologists can use mathematical models and methods to help them in extracting the mechanisms of physiological phenomena. On the other hand, due to the nature of different disciplines, there are barriers for the communication between physiologists and mathematicians.

This three-day conference is a multidisciplinary meeting forum for researchers from experimental and theoretical fields, modeling, and applied mathematics, and is devoted to facilitating scientific exchange of ideas between physiologists and applied mathematicians, and initiating new collaborative partnerships.
