Paris Biological Physics Community Day 2013

Tuesday 3rd December 2013, 9h30
Centre Culturel Irlandais - Salle Michel Guillaume
5 rue des Irlandais, 75005 Paris

The Paris Biological Physics Community Day (PBPCD 2013) is a conference organized by young researchers of biological physics in the Paris area. We aim to bring together researchers in biophysics in the Paris area in order to create an opportunity for meeting and sharing knowledge.
The meeting is intended for physicists working in diverse areas of biology. You are welcome to join us! It’s going to be a day of conviviality and scientific enthusiasm, we envision to have a dynamic and informal atmosphere. In the program the talks of the invited speakers are interleaved with short presentations by young investigators; the schedule includes pizza for lunch, coffee and a closing cocktail.
The event is organized on behalf of GDRI (Groupement de recherche international "Evolution, Regulation and Signaling") which also provides the funding. There is no registration fee and no prior registration is mandatory! We recommend registration in order to allow us to estimate the size of the coffee order.
