Due to the recent development of COVID-19 in the EU, accompanied by the proposed travel restrictions, we decided to postpone the 5th Molecular Communications Workshop to 2021. The workshop will still be held in Tampere, Finland. The new dates will be announced later this spring.

Despite the current dismal situation, we would like to turn this into positive actions. We will implement coordinated actions to highlight the work and importance of the Molecular Communication community with authors of the submitted papers in order to secure the continuity and liveability of this excellent scientific community. We will provide further information on these actions in coming days.

We would like to share our thoughts for those affected by the COVID-19 outbreak worldwide. Please keep safe wherever you are and stay tuned in this webpage for further details.


The 5th Workshop on Molecular Communications will be held in Tampere, Finland, on May, 18th-20th, 2020. Building on the success of the previous four workshops, this workshop will act as a hub of knowledge exchange of Molecular Communication Research in Europe with a focus on broadening the reach of the community into border disciplines. Disciplines we wish to attract include (but are not limited to):
  • Synthetic Biology
  • Systems Biology
  • Pharmacology
  • Inter/Intra Cellular Communication
  • Chemical Networks
  • Communication Engineering
The workshop will deliver three profile keynote speeches in multidisciplinary topics and incorporates two focused tutorials aimed at young researchers. Moreover, the workshop will run three technical sessions focusing on emerging hot topics and will host three panel sessions.
Fundamental Molecular Communication: This theme focuses on leveraging communication theory to either model the behavior of living systems or to design and analyze artificial molecular communication system.

Applications of Molecular Communication: This theme focuses on applications in the area of biomedical, environmental and industrial engineering. For example, health monitoring and drug delivery.

Experimental Molecular Communication: This theme focuses on simulation tools/techniques and experimental testbeds.
