The final version of the programme can be downloaded as PDF. Last Update: 3rd March 2009 (now printable!).
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.
The SysBio Course will be enriched by a Keynote Plenary Lecture (t.b.a). Denis Noble will deliver a Final Keynote Address to conclude FEBS-SysBio2009. Both lectures will address the man-on-the-moon like program towards the virtual/digital human.
List of Confirmed Invited Lecturers & Chairs
Last update: 3. Nov. 2008
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 10.4 and Windows Vista Laptops for your presentations. Available software for presentations includes Adobe Acrobat 9, Keynote 2008 (OS X), Microsoft Powerpoint (Win: 2007, OS X: 2008), OpenOffice 3.0 as well as Quicktime and common audio/video codecs. The preferred presentation type is Powerpoint. For any special requirements please contact us under firstname.lastname@example.org.
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(Details as PDF) 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" h x 35" w [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.
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. For more information on the Blackboard Teaching courses please see Courses information section.
Computer practicals will demonstrate modern modeling and data analysis tools hand on. UPDATE: Students are advised to bring if possible their own laptops to the practicals as the number of laptops provided by the organizers will be limited. The software used for the practicals will be made available for download from this website and also at the course site. For more information on the Computer courses please see Courses information section.
Lecturers will explain their systems biology methodology in detail in interaction with the students during tutorial sessions.
On Saturday March 7, two optional parallel preparatory courses will be held from 9:00-17:00. These are supposed to serve the strong in mind but feeble at heart in either Mathematics for Biologists, or Cell Biology for Systems Biologists. Ursula Klingmueller will teach a preparatory course for the latter and David Fell one for the former.
Registering for either one of these courses will require an extra night’s accommodation and meals, which we will book for you and it will require us to charge an extra 75 euro registration fee. Please be aware that the number of places for these two preparatory courses are limited to 20 students each and acceptance for these courses will be communicated by the organizers.
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 (5 in total) shall receive the "SysBio2009 Young Investigator Award".
Several satellite meetings are being planned, e.g. EraSysBio, MOSES/SysMO (please check the satellite meetings section or the respective website for information and updates)
