07.01.20: The Programme grid has been added.

28.12.19: The Registration and abstract submission deadline has been extended to January 9th, 2020.

28.11.19: Information on the social event is updated.

21.11.19: Information on Blackboard and Computer Practicals updated.

8.11.19: The registration for SysBio2020 is now open.

18.10.19: SCAM WARNING: A participant was contacted by a company on telephone about booking a hotel room for the conference and asked for credit card information. We are not associated in any way with this company. This scam seems to occur at other conferences too, for example ICIAM2019.

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.

Blackboard Teaching
Frank Bruggeman (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) Stochasticity and single cell physiology
Bas Teusink (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) Constrained based modeling of genome-scale metabolic networks
Edda Klipp (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin) Modeling of dynamical systems
Franziska Matthaeus (Goethe University Frankfurt) Modeling spatio-temporal processes
Maria Zimmermann (EMBL Heidelberg) Machine learning and data analysis
Michael Savageau (University of California) Regulatory strategies

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.

Computer Practicals
Douwe Molenaar (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)
Statistics with R
Sven Sahle (University of Heidelberg) Modeling with Copasi
Ronan Fleming (University of Leiden) The COBRA Toolbox

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.

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.

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".
