Towards 2020 science: modelling and predicting in biology and earth sciences
This call is motivated by the Towards 2020 Science report, which outlines the convergence of computer science and the natural sciences towards 2020. The implications of the report are further discussed in a special issue of Nature inspired by the report [Nature 440 (7083); 23 March 2006].
A crucial observation of the Towards 2020 Science report is that concepts, theorems and tools developed within computer science are now being developed into new conceptual tools and technological tools of potentially profound importance, with wide-ranging applications outside the subject in which they originated, especially in sciences investigating complex systems, most notably in biology, chemistry and earth sciences.
