INVITED TALK – Prof. Pawel Kulakowski
The talk will discuss the possible means for nanocommunications, i.e. communication between future nanomachines. An overview of possible approaches will be given, including miniaturization of existing communication devices, building nanomachines from basic blocks and molecular communication motivated by the communication mechanisms already existing in biology. The talk will later focus on the phenomenon of FRET (Foerster Resonance Energy Transfer). FRET can provide viable communication means on nano-distances with propagation delays of few nano-seconds only. The theory of FRET will be introduced, followed by a report on experiments on its performance performed in the last few years. The last part of the talk will present some further simulation studies, showing possible applications of FRET-based nanocommunication.

Pawel Kulakowski (email@example.com) received a Ph.D. in telecommunications from the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Poland, in 2007, and currently he is working there as an assistant professor. He spent about 2 years as a post-doc or a visiting professor at universities in Spain, specifically at Technical University of Cartagena, University of Girona, University of Castilla-la Mancha and University of Seville. He co-authored about 30 scientific papers, in journals, conferences and as technical reports. He was involved in numerous research projects, especially European COST Actions: COST2100, IC1004 and CA15104 IRACON, focusing on topics of wireless sensor networks, indoor localization and wireless communications in general. His current research interests include molecular communications and nanonetworks. He was recognized with several scientific distinctions, including 3 awards for his conference papers and a governmental scholarship for young outstanding researchers. Since 2011, he is an Executive Editor in Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
