Blackboard Teaching

In Black board teaching sessions teachers carefully selected for this mode will explain in the simplest possible terms and in highly interactive mode, principles and methodologies. NEW: Detailed information about the Blackboard Teaching & Computer Practicals can be found here.

Blackboard Teaching
Frank Bruggeman BB01: Stochasticity
Bas Teusink BB02: FBA
Wolfram Liebermeister BB03: Enzyme regulation, thermodynamics
Franziska Matthaeus BB04: PDEs
Elad Noor BB05: Metabolic Engineering
Michael Savageau BB06: Genotype/Phenotype

Computer Practicals

Computer practicals will demonstrate modern modeling and data analysis tools hand on. Students are required to bring their own laptops to the practicals as the organizers do not provide laptops. The software used for the practicals will be made available at the course site. NEW: Detailed information about the Blackboard Teaching & Computer Practicals as well as software requirements can be found here.

Computer Practicals
Pedro Mendes (UK, US) &
Sven Sahle (DE)
Akira Funahashi (JP) CP02: CellDesigner
Michael Blinov CP03: Vcell
Tom Altenburg CP04: Tellurium

Software for Computer Practicals:

Please make sure that your Laptop fullfills the requirements for your selected computer practicals and that any required software is installed prior to the practicals.

Oral Presentations

Selected "Short Talks" will be delivered during afternoon sessions by principal investigators, graduate students and postdocs. These presentations will be selected by the Scientific Advisory Board on the basis of submitted abstracts. All selected speakers will be notified by e-mail to submit study material in PDF-format about their talk for the students.

Please deliver your presentation on a USB-Stick at least two hours before your talk is sheduled. We will supply OS X and Windows 7 Laptops for your presentations. Available software for presentations includes Adobe Acrobat 10, Keynote (OS X), Microsoft Powerpoint (Win: 2010, OS X: 2011), as well as Quicktime and common audio/video codecs. The preferred presentation type is Powerpoint. For any special requirements please contact the meeting office.

Poster Sessions

The poster session represents a vital part of the SysBio Course. All abstracts not selected for oral presentations will be on display as posters during the entire course to provide ample time for informal discussions among students, participants and lecturers. In small-group sessions lecturers will provoke intensive discussions about the posters and about careers and research plans with the individual students.

Poster size: The maximum allowed size for a poster is 120cm height by 90cm width (=47 x 35 inches). The posters will by attached to the boards via adhesive tape, which will be supplied by the organizer. If you have not been notified about giving an oral presentation, you have been selected for a poster presentation.

Young Investigator Awards

All abstracts with graduate students or postdoctoral fellows as first authors are subject to scientific evaluation by selected members of the SAB. The best abstract in each topic shall receive the "SysBio Young Investigator Award".
