Abstract: 
Here I survey a broad range of recent computational models for 2D and 3D cell motility. Some of these models depict chemical activation on the perimeter of a (static or deforming) domain. Others consider fluid and/or mechanical elements and/or biochemical signalling on the interior of a deforming 2D region representing a cell. Examples of platforms include the immersed-boundary method and level set methods. I describe some of the computational challenges and how these have been addressed by various researchers.
