In an "aging society," health span extension is most important. As in 2010, talks in this series of meetings in Rostock-Warnemünde demonstrated that aging is an apparently very complex process, where computational work is most useful for gaining insights and to find interventions that counter aging and prevent or counteract aging-related diseases. The specific topics of this year's meeting entitled, "RoSyBA: Rostock Symposium on Systems Biology and Bioinformatics in Ageing Research," were primarily related to "Cancer and Aging" and also had a focus on work funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The next meeting in the series, scheduled for September 20-21, 2013, will focus on the use of ontologies for computational research into aging, stem cells, and cancer. Promoting knowledge formalization is also at the core of the set of proposed action items concluding this report. © Copyright 2012, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.
The workshop was kindly sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF, project CALSYS-FORSYS FKZ. 0315264), the SENS Foundation, Sanofi-Aventis, and the Department of Medicine and the Department of Aging Science and Humanities (Interdisziplinare Fakultat), University of Rostock. This work was also supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the framework of GerontoSys (Forschungskern SyStaR, project ID 0315894A) to H.A.K., by the Kooperationsprojekt GerontoMitoSys, FKZ 0315584 to A.K., by the Verbund projekt ROSAge, FKZ 0315892A to G.F., and within the framework FORSYS Partner (Forsys Lung, FKZ 0315256) to B.S.
