Participants will include researchers from all career stages, including graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and early-career principal investigators. .
To ensure transdisciplinary, we aim to have roughly even numbers of participants from four broad research areas: mathematical/theoretical biophysics, experimental biophysics, biophysical chemistry, and immune cell biology.
Our selection criteria will include gender and nationality. We target 50 percent of women participants, and no more than 25% of researchers based in France.
The scientific quality of the participants will be evaluated by the organizing committee based on the conference abstracts, a short motivation letter and a CV. Evaluation criteria will include novelty of the presented findings, if the data have been published or not (priority will be given to unpublished data), relevance to the field of immunobiophysics, and potential of the work to generate transdisciplinary reflections.
Min 100 words, max 450, with possibility to include one figure max and selected references.
