EMBO Conference Series on Systems Dynamics of Intracellular Communication



Systems Dynamics of Intracellular Communication

15 - 19 May | 2011 | Engelberg | Switzerland

About the Conference Series


The Spatial meetings are an EMBO Conference Series that aims to bring together theoreticians and experimental scientists working on issues relevant to communication in the spatial dimension within cells. Previous meetings in this series were held in 2007 and 2009.

The preliminary program includes the following topics to be presented by a combination of invited speakers and speakers chosen from submitted abstracts. In keeping with the spirit of previous Spatial meetings, approximately 1/3 of the meeting program will be selected from submitted abstracts to highlight work of young faculty and late-breaking developments.


Membranes and Cytoskeletal Dynamics in Spatial Signaling Mathematical and Computational Approaches to Cell Biology
Dynamics and Kinetics of Cellular Signaling Imaging Spatiality - from Fluorescence to Electron Microscopy
Synthetic and Chemical Biology - Applications to Spatial Questions Long Distance Communication in Neuronal Processes
Robustness in Spatial Signaling Networks Cell Polarity, Cell Shape and Cell Size

Spatial 2011 will include two poster sessions with ample time for discussion and interactions. Additional venues for social interactions with colleagues will be offered at the opening evening's get-together and the concluding evening's farewell dinner.


Two optional pre-conference tutorials will be held in the afternoon of Sunday, May 15:

'Introduction to experimental methods' and

'Introduction to mathematical modeling'.


There is no fee to participate in either of these tutorials, but as space is limited, registration will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Please indicate on the on-line registration form which of the tutorials you wish to attend.




We look forward to welcoming you to Engelberg!
