One of the most controversial and difficult problems regarding the mathematical modelling of biological systems is determination of the appropriateness of the choice of mathematical framework and the implementation of scale in any given model. Concentration scales, spatial scales and temporal scales characteristic of models in biology, more so than any other application, are highly varied and structured even in regards to a single process. In this minisymposium we will be hearing from speakers working on the forefront of foundations in multiscale modelling in biology. It is best to keep an open mind in these talks about the fundamental choice of the methodology which is appropriate to a system and how these methodologies relate to each other. You will be stimulated with ideas regarding discrete versus continuous and stochastic versus deterministic modelling, as well as more general discussion about the nature and treatment of multiscale frameworks in biology.
