AQV days 2021 : quantitative approaches to living systems
Online meeting, from 20 to 22 January 2021
Registrations are closed.
PresentationAQV days 2021 will take place on 20-22 january 2021 and will be the inaugural conference of the new research network (GDR) "Quantitative approaches of living systems". It will thus be open to all members of the network as well as to all researchers tackling biological questions with methods coming from physics, chemistry, engineering or other sciences.
Due to the online-only nature of the event, registration is free of charge.
To cope with the current health crisis, the AQV days will be a totally on-line event. To make them a time for sharing and exchanging, invited and contributed talks will be complemented by virtual poster sessions and coffee breaks, where you will have however to bring your own coffee !
Please note: all presentations will be recorded
Speakers and program
- Alexander Aulehla (EMBL, Heidelberg)
- Edouard Hannezo (Institute for Science and Technology, Vienna)
- Franziska Lautenschläger (Center for Biophysics Saarbrücken)
- Emma Slack (ETH Zürich)
- David Zwicker (Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Göttingen)
Participants and contributions
On each day, you will be able to listen to keynote and contributed talks through a Zoom session. Its URL will be displayed on the meeting page provided you have authenticated to the site. Please upgrade your Zoom software to the latest version for an optimal experience.
Speakers of each session should connect 10 min before the start of the session to check that all is fine on their side and make themselves known to the session chair via hand raising or chat to the zoom hosts. Session chairs will activate them as presenters (video, sound and screen share) at the end of the questions from the previous talk.
Keynote and contributed talks will be recorded.
Poster presenters are asked to upload a PDF file of their poster to the web site (the submission link is on the meeting web page given above). The poster will be on display to authenticated users of the web site from the time you deposit it and throughout the meeting. It is possible to modify the file at any time, so please upload your file as soon as possible to notify us that you will be present. It is strongly advised that your poster is designed as a conventional one-page poster in landscape orientation, or alternatively as a series of 5-6 slides, each recapitulating one of the main messages that you want to convey (e.g., context, specific question raised, your approach, …, main results,... summary).
Each poster will be assigned a unique identifying number and will be associated to one of the three poster sessions. Throughout the meeting, a zoom virtual room will be created for each poster, with the same number as the poster. During the poster session he/she has been assigned to, each poster presenter is asked to be present in the corresponding virtual room, ready to answer questions by members of the audience. Each poster presenter will be able to share its screen to display any content that may be helpful, including the uploaded poster. Please preserve the interactive nature of the moment and refrain from giving a one-way presentation as people are free to enter at any time in your poster zoom room. Note that a few poster prizes sponsored by SFP, SFBD and SBCF…. will be attributed at the end of the AQV days.
Please note the special events in the program: the two round tables on transition to outside and inside academia, as well as an intriguing session dedicated to physics-biology games.
Finally, there will be a vote for the new logo that will accompany the GDR AQV network from 2021. Thus, please submit your nice-looking logo contest entries on http://nonlineaire.univ-lille1.fr/AQV/expo/images/ with "GDR AQV logo contest" as a caption. A good logo should be visually pleasing while illustrating clearly the idea of "Quantitative approaches to living systems".
Thank you again for your participation, we look very much forward to meeting you all very soon.
