NVTB annual meeting May 26 and 27, 2016

Dopersduin, Schoorl



We are once again happy to invite you for the annual NVTB-retreat on 26 and 27 May, 2016 in Schoorl. At this retreat scientists and students working in Theoretical Biology will present and discuss their research in an informal atmosphere.

The meeting starts on Thursday May 26 at 11:15 (registration is open from 10:30), and ends on Friday May 27, in the late afternoon. As in previous years, the meeting is held at Dopersduin, located at the edge of the dunes of Schoorl. Full regsistration includes tea/coffee, breakfast and other meals, and an overnight stay at Dopersduin.

On Thursday evening we will have the annual meeting (jaarvergadering) with members of the NVTB. After this meeting we traditionally take a long, nocturnal hike to the beach and back.

We invite you to submit an abstract for giving a talk. You may choose between a short (10 min + 5 min discussion) talk, or a normal one (20 min + 5 min discussion). We encourage young scientists (master students and PhD students) to apply for talks, also to present unfinished work. The deadline for abstract submission is 5th April. You will be notified by 17th April whether your submission has been accepted. The final program, including all abstracts, will be sent to NVTB members and subscribers to the meeting by e-mail.

The deadline for ordinary registration is 25th April.

If you have further questions please contact Bram.

Kind regards,

Jaap Kaandorp, Bram van Dijk and Nienke Hartemink
