General Information

The conference “Cell Physics 2014” will take place at the Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany, 23.-26.9.2014. It is organized and financed by the Collaborative Research Center SFB 1027 “Physical modeling of non-equilibrium processes in biological systems” and the Graduate School GRK 1276 “Structure formation and transport in complex systems”. It is intended to be an interdisciplinary platform for scientific exchange between participants from cell biology and biophysics, both represented in roughly equal numbers, and focuses centrally on theoretical concepts in conjunction with cell biological experiments. Topics include

  • Cellular Self-Organization
  • Collective Processes in Cells
  • Cytoskeleton Physics
  • Molecular Motors
  • Intracellular Transport
  • Calcium Signaling
  • Cellular Communication

The official conference will start Tuesday, 23.9.2014 at 9am, and finish around lunchtime Friday, 26.9.2014. It consists of invited talks, contributed oral presentations and poster sessions. A pre-conference workshop for the members of the SFB 1027 and the GRK 1276 will take place on Monday, 22.9.2014. All participants of the Cell Physics conference are cordially invited to join this pre-conference event comprising oral presentations and many posters of the SFB 1027 and GRK 1276.
