DutchBiophysics 2016
Veldhoven, 3 -4 October


You are cordially invited to DutchBiophysics 2016, the annual Dutch Meeting on Molecular and Cellular Biophysics, to be held on 3 and 4 October at the NH Koningshof in Veldhoven.

The meeting is a joint event with the Annual Meeting of the Netherlands Society for Microscopy (NVvM, http://www.microscopie.nl) and the Biannual Meeting of the Society for Biophysics and Biomedical Technology (http://www.biopm.nl).

Confirmed invited speakers

Keynote speaker:
– Jennifer Lippincott Schwartz (NIH)

– Patricia Bassereau (Institute Curie)
– Cliff Brangwynne (Princeton University)
– Mark Ellisman (UC San Diego)
– Erwin Frey (LMU)

– Christophe Danelon (Delft University of Technology)
– Marloes Groot (VU University)
– Peter Zijlstra (Eindhoven University of Technology)

Goal and scope
The goal of the meeting is to assemble all groups that work on molecular and cellular biophysics, microscopy and biomedical engineering in the Netherlands. The meeting consists of plenary sessions, with invited presentations by (inter)national speakers, and special oral and poster sessions.

Topics include the biophysics of living cells and their membranes, the cytoskeleton, molecular motors, DNA- and RNA-protein interactions, theoretical biophysics, systems biology and networks, photosynthesis, and new developments in light and electron microscopy, imaging and spectroscopy, force probes, (bio)chemical synthesis, nanotechnology and biomedical applications and biomedical engineering. We welcome contributions from researchers studying these topics from an experimental, theoretical or modelling background.

The Dutch Meeting on Molecular and Cellular Biophysics is organised and sponsored by FOM (FOMwww.fom.nl) and NWO Earth and Life Sciences (ALW)(http://www.nwo.nl/over-nwo/organisatie/nwo-onderdelen/alw), in co-operation with the Netherlands Society for Microscopy (http://www.microscopie.nl) and the Society for Biophysics and Biomedical Technology (http://www.biopm.nl).
Abstract submission and selection

Participants can submit an abstract for an oral or a poster presentation. The deadlines for the submission of abstracts are:
– for an oral presentation: 30 May 2016
– for a poster presentation: 25 August 2016, 12.00

Please note that submission of an abstract does NOT imply registration for the conference!

Because of the limited number of time slots for oral presentations, the Programme Committee will make a selection from the abstracts submitted for oral presentations.
The result of the selection will be notified to the authors by the end of July. Abstracts submitted but not selected for oral presentation will be transferred as a poster presentation.

Poster Prize
The Society for Biophysics and Biomedical Technology will sponsor a poster prize for the three best posters, to be selected during the meeting.

The registration deadline is 25 August 2016, 12:00.

Participation, including hotel accommodation from 3 to 4 October 2016, is free of charge. However, if you fail to show up and you do not cancel your reservation in advance by contacting the conference organisers, you will be charged for the costs (up to € 200 for two-day participation, staying in a single room).
