Biological systems show a constant multi scale spatio-temporal activity to live and adapt to their environment. Waves are broadly observed in these systems and achieve several purposes: they enable long range communications, they produce a spatio-temporal ordering useful for morphogenesis, cells synchrony. They can also be involved in disorders such as epilepsy. The theoretical study of these waves remains a subject of intensive research as they exhibit features different from waves observed in physics (asymmetric interactions, strong history dependence, plasticity, homeostasis). We would like to invite experts in this field to make a step forward in understanding the physics of these waves in domains such as neuroscience, morphogenesis, biological signaling.
