EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Biological Oscillators - Design, Mechanism, Function 2015 Heidelberg

  • Conference Call
  • The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is kindly inviting you to participate in a EMBO/​EMBL Symposium on Biological Oscillators – Design, Mechanism and Function, held November 12 – 14, 2015 in Heidelberg, Germay.

    Oscillations are abundant — from hormonal oscillations with periods of days and months, to genetic oscillations in the range of hours (circadian clock, embryonic oscillators) to metabolic and biochemical oscillations in the order of minutes (glycolytic oscillations) and seconds (Calcium-​dynamics), oscillations are central to biology across different temporal and spatial scales.

    Symposium Topics

    • Oscillation mechanisms across different scales: from circadian clock to embryonic oscillators to biochemical (metabolic) oscillations (and more), multiples disciplines will be all joined at this meeting in order to common mechanism underlying the generation of oscillaitons
    • Oscillation function: besides known clock functions, other emerging concepts of oscillatory dynamics as basis for temporal signal encoding mechanisms
    • Quantitative/​imaging approaches in order to study oscillatory dynamics
    • Higher-​order phenomena, such as coupled oscillators and synchronization in various context and at different scales
    • Mathematical modeling and computational biology of oscillatory and complex dynamics

    Registration Fee Waivers and Travel Grants are available for young researchers for the EMBO I EMBL Symposia Series (see below). Please indicate your interest for a Registration Fee Waiver or Travel Grant or both when submitting your abstract.

    Registration Fee Waiver: The sum that you have paid to attend the meeting will be reimbursed

    Travel Grant: Up to €500 for participants arriving from the eligible countries listed below

    The scientific organisers will select the recipients of all fellowships during the abstract selection process.

    If you are awarded a fellowship, you will be notified after the completion of the abstract selection. This is usually 8 weeks before the event start date. Please note that you must pay your registration fee by the payment deadline (6 weeks before the event start date). The EMBL Course & Conference Office will request your bank details and reimburse the registration fees after the event. Travel Grants can only be reimbursed after the event once the receipts have been submitted.
