ESB 2009

Program

The workshop will contain a mixture of tutorials and state-of-the-art reviews given by leading researchers. Aspects of multiscale modeling will receive special attention and invited tutorial speakers were accordingly encouraged to make an effort to combine scales from micro to macro or vice versa.

A special emphasis will be placed on student projects at both the Master's and Doctoral levels, and ample time will be provided for showcasing student work both in oral and poster presentations. Posters are a great way to invite feedback on research results and engage people in constructive discussion. A guided poster session with a chairman will be held on Sunday evening. Furthermore, special informal mentoring sessions will be held after the sessions allowing students to seek advice from the leading researchers in their area of study. Prizes for the best student presentation and poster respectively will be awarded at the closing ceremony on the final day of the workshop.

Social Event

Posters will be presented on Sunday evening. Afterwards there will be a barbecue of Swiss sausages on the Hönggerberg Campus.

On Monday evening, all participants are invited to the Zurich Zoo. We will meet at an animal house for an apero. Experienced guides will give tours at the Zoo an explain exotic animals and their biology. Dinner will take place at the Restaurant Siesta. During the apero and dinner there will be a lot of time to meet and discuss in a relaxed atmosphere.
