EC Workshop on Infochemical Communication Technology

March 10, 2010 @ 00:00 March 11, 2010 @ 23:59 CET

This workshop brings together researchers interested in the fields of molecular interaction & chemical communication at different levels of organisation in both biological and technological systems, i.e the development of new infochemical communication technologies.

We will consider the infochemical communication problem in two stages, within both biological and technological domains – generating precisely controlled infochemical signals and the complementary detection problem of recovering chemical information in a receiver. Animal models, particularly from the insect kingdom, are ideal for this purpose since known pheromones mediate behaviours that are often robustly reproducible, many of the biosynthesis steps are understood, the molecular biology of the complementary receptors have been characterised and the neuroscience of pheromone processing in insects has been widely studied.

A key aim of the workshop is therefore to identify potential routes from our knowledge of biological chemical communication through to technological implementation.
