The 10th IFAC International Conference on Foundations of Systems Biology in Engineering (FOSBE 2024) will be held at the Divani Corfu Palace Hotel in Corfu Island, Greece, from 8 to 11, September, 2024. FOSBE 2024 is organized by the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC)the Institute of Chemical Engineering Sciences (ICE-HT) of the Foundation for Research & Technology- Hellas (FORTH). FOSBE 2024 focuses on the use of systems engineering, mathematical modeling, process & automatic control principles and approaches in biology. The interdisciplinary field of Systems Biology has dramatically evolved in the recent years, using computational methodologies, including big data analysis and machine learning, to address complex problems in many areas of biological applications, taking advantage of technological advancements enabling the acquisition of big amounts of measurements from multi-scale biosystems, ranging from large-scale bioreactor complexes to single cells. We would like to discuss the developments in these technical fields and application areas. It is very important to also discuss the means of educating a new generation of researchers with the appropriate skills to deliver in this multi-disciplinary environment and routes of international collaboration and funding opportunities to support these advancements from the basic to applied research. FOSBE has evolved to be the framework for fruitful interactions and discussions between the researchers, big industries and start-ups, who join forces to develop standards, tools, data resources and final products based on the systems biology principles. Open questions about editing, reviewing and publishing in systems biology will be discussed with systems and synthetic biology journal editors.
