Autocatalysis is a key factor in biochemical systems, often featured in models illustrating complex dynamic behaviors like bistability, hysteresis, oscillations, or chaos. While it plays a crucial role from origin-of-life and metabolic processes to population biology and economics, a comprehensive understanding is still a work in progress.

Given its interdisciplinary nature, researchers from various fields, including biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and physics, have contributed to unraveling the intricacies of autocatalysis. Despite this shared interest, direct interaction among these researchers is infrequent.

The purpose of this specialized seminar is to provide a common ground for interdisciplinary researchers to gather, encouraging discussions and fostering collaborations. The seminar occurs bi-monthly in spring and autumn on Thursdays at 4 pm CET, featuring two 30-minute independent talks followed by breakout rooms for in-depth discussions with the speakers.
