Below we will place the schedule of the 2017 q-bio Summer School as it begins to evolve. Please keep in mind that this is subject to change up to the last minute.

Description of events:

  • General Seminars, Keynote Presentations, and Invited Talks - These are traditional seminar style presentations. These are open and available to the public. Many of these will be video-recorded and later posted online. The majority of the seminar talks will take place in Scott 229.
  • Chalk Talks - This is a more in-depth discussion or pedagogical lecture on a topic. These are open to registered participants or with consent from the organizers. A select few of these will be video-recorded and later posted online.
  • Breakout Sessions - These are more tutorials or software demonstrations. These are open to registered participants or with consent from the organizers.
  • Student Talks - These are 15 minute student presentations. These are open to registered participants and to the public with consent of each presenter.
  • Panel Discussions - These are 1 hour discussions of topics of particular importance to young researchers in q-bio (e.g, choosing career paths, forming collaborations, writing proposals, etc).
