This meeting will bring together cell biologists and biophysicists to discuss the physical basis of many cellular processes. It will concentrate on model systems in which a combination of experimental studies and physical modelling has significantly enhanced our understanding of a wide variety of living cells and their common design principles. The meeting will be organised round the themes of:
• Space and Time
• Growth and Form
• Chance and Control
Participation of students and young researchers is particularly encouraged. A number of bursaries will be available for researchers from EU accession countries and developing countries.
