Call for Paper – Thematic School “advances in Systems and Synthetic Biology

The Thematic School “advances in Systems and Synthetic Biology” (aSSB-Evry’18) will be held in Evry on March 19-23, 2018.

The aSSB-Evry’18 scientific board is organizing an international workshop for students (PhD and M2) and post-doctoral fellows. This workshop offers the opportunity for students and post-doctoral fellows to get an official recognition through peer-review, to discuss their projects and to get feedback from other participants by sharing their experience in a favorable environment.  The M2, PhD or post-doc projects can concern either an introductory presentation, works in progress or some first conclusive results. Topics of interest include any contribution helping to understand or to engineer biological systems by using models coming from physics, chemistry, engineering, computer sciences or mathematics.

Submission procedure: The short paper (between 3 and 8 pages in A4 format) should be written in English, with at least a M2, PhD student or post-doctoral fellow among the authors. It will be reviewed by the scientific committee of the School. Once the paper is accepted, the student must attend the workshop and present his work in English during a 15 minutes-presentation. He (she) is also encouraged to bring a poster. Free registration is proposed to one of the authors (M2, PhD, post-doc) of an accepted paper. The short papers will be published in the proceedings book of the School.

Details and instructions for the submissions can be found at:
