The fifth edition of the BCAM Workshop on "Quantitative Biomedicine for Health and Disease" will take place in Bilbao on the 13th and 14th of February 2019 to discuss recent investigations bringing the human health and its pathologies onto the language and methods of quantitative sciences, like mathematics and engineering. The main goal of this workshop is to create cross talk between these two research fields, still pretty isolated islands, and engage in a debate on the potential compatibilities, advantages and disadvantages of one approach over the other in combination with their potential to address important biomedical questions.

This workshop provides an informal forum for discussing the most recent findings, developments and challenges in the field of quantitative biomedicine. It is an explicit aim of this workshop to provide a platform for researchers who currently are working in biomedicine to come together and discuss on: a) the scope and nature of information provided by Biomedical data b) the assumptions and constraints imposed by mathematical and engineering approaches and c) the capacity and limitations that arise when particular methods (i.e. modeling and simulation, network theory or image processing) are employed to different human pathologies: this year´s edition will feature a peculiar focus on cancer and neurological diseases.

The workshop structure, combining high profile speakers and young talented researchers across world-leading institutions, will ensure a diverse and lively interaction between participants, helping early-career researchers to focus their interests, as discussions will have an emphasis on current approaches and outstanding questions that should be addressed in future research. Three short lectures will be offered to participant researchers and a poster session will be organized for student to be able to present their research work.

Finally, this year's edition will be a satellite event of ICIAM2019, the International Congress in Industrial and Applied Mathematics, which takes place on July 15th-19th, 2019, in Valencia (https://iciam2019.org).
