The understanding of biological networks such as metabolic and signal 
transduction pathways is crucial for understanding molecular and cellular 
processes in the organism or system under study. This field is subject of 
lively research and both experimental and computational approaches are used 
to elucidate the biological networks. The bioinformatics of biological 
networks involves a broad range of research and approaches. Research includes 
the identification of regulatory elements in DNA, genome context analysis, 
modeling and simulation of pathways, reconstruction of pathways from 
experimental data, visualization of pathways, and the representation of 
pathways in database, graphs and markup languages. To accelerate our 
understanding of the (dynamics) of biological networks it is seems imperative 
that these efforts are combined and subsequently have to be applied to real 
biological problems. It is clear that this field of research can only advance 
when bioinformaticians and experimental biologists (for example working on 
model organisms such as Drosophila and organisms with a relatively simple and 
basal body plan such as sponges and scleractinian corals) work closely 
together. During this three day symposium we will bring together researchers 
from different disciplines (biology, mathematics and computational sciences) 
working on different aspects of networks to exchange ideas and approaches. 
The first day of the symposium is scheduled for introductory lectures.
During the first day of the symposium we have scheduled six introductory 
lectures, which aim at introducing specific subjects to the audience. The 
lectures are open for all participants and will provide background knowledge 
for the scientific presentations.
