Plenary Symposia will each be introduced and moderated by the indicated chair person. Lecturers will then discuss their methodologies, discuss these in detail with the students and then show their most recent Systems Biology discoveries.
Sessions and Invited Speakers
Keynote speaker: Ruedi Aebersold (ETH Zurich, CH)
To be announced.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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".
