- Accommodation for the duration of the meeting (from 11 – 22 September). An extra night can be provided at extra cost if travel arrangements require it.
Evening meals are not included in the registration, except for two evening party dinners.
Participants will be expected to pay by credit card. French participants may use purchase orders.
Applicants should provide a letter of motivation, a CV (see below for items), and up to two letters of recommendation through the application portal. The subsequent selection, performed by a selection committee, will emphasize the following criteria:
- Track record of the participant and their lab
- Ongoing research projects focusing on quantitative biology, or future direction of research for individuals planning to implement experiments or initiate collaborations on physical approaches to cell and developmental biology, so as to select individuals who will best benefit from the school
Importantly, applicants will NOT be selected based on previous training in physics or maths, as the objective of the workshop is to provide tools for biologists to interact with physicists.
CV content (less than 1 page), should provide information on:
- Prior education
- Research experience
- Courses and meetings attended
- Publications (up to 5)
Your abstract should expose your previous and current research interest, in particular:
- The objective of your work
- The techniques that you are using, if pertinent
- Your current results
The selection committee will examine the abstract in light of the information provided in the motivation letter. The motivation letter should emphasize current exposure to interdisciplinary approaches and how you think your current or prospective work may benefit from the workshop.
Poster dimensions are 135 cm x 90 cm.
