Deadline: 18 Dec 2015
The joint meeting of the European Society for Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ESMTB) and the annual meeting of the Society for Mathematical Biology (SMB) will be held in Nottingham, 11-15 July 2016.
We now invite proposals for minisymposia at the interface of mathematics and biology, including all areas of the life and medical sciences. Minisymposia will be held in two-hour blocks, consisting of 4 talks of 30 minutes each (including time for questions and changing speakers).
Please fill in the form at www.ecmtb2016.org/submissions/ to submit your minisymposium proposal.
Following submission, the minisymposium proposer will receive a unique link which they should forward to each speaker, in order to register and submit their individual abstracts.
Minisymposium proposers are encouraged to consider geographical and gender diversity when selecting speakers.
Submission of abstracts for contributed talks and posters will open in due course, with a deadline of 14 Feb 2016.
Please note: The first submission associated with your email address will create a user account, and a password will be emailed to that email address. Each registered user may make a maximum of two submissions to ECMTB 2016 (one as a minisymposium organiser; one for a minisymposium talk, contributed talk or poster).
