Systems biology is an exciting new ?eld bringing together life scientists, mat- maticians,computer scientists and engineersto explorea new and deeper und- standing of biological systems. Computational models and methods of analysis are essential components of the systems biology programme, not only re?ecting, but also driving wet lab experimentation and the formation of new hypotheses about system behaviour. This volumecontains theproceedingsofthe?fth meeting oftheinternational conference on Computational Methods in Systems Biology. The ?rst conference was in Trento, Italy in 2003. The second meeting was in Paris in 2004, and in 2005 the conference came to Edinburgh for the ?rst time. Last year’s meeting was again in Trento and this year the conference was again in Edinburgh. This year the conference attracted over 60 paper submissions. Sixteen of these were selected for presentation at the conference. In choosing the 16 best papers, the conference Chairs received wonderful support from the Programme Committee,who deliveredthoroughandinsightful reviewsofallpapersina very short time scale. We thank all of the members of the Programme Committee and their sub-referees for their industriousness. We also thank the authors for responding swiftly to the comments of the referees and revising their papers to address these comments earnestly. The electronic submission of papers, refereeing and Programme Committee workweremadepossiblebytheexcellentEasyChairfreeconferencemanagement system.EasyChairmanagedalloftheaspectsofthereviewprocessfromsubm- sion to review and discussion, through to sending decisionsby e-mailto authors. EasyChair compiled the list of referees which appears in this front matter. We give hearty thanks to Andrei Voronkov for providing this wonderful service to the scienti?c community.
