NVTB annual meeting 2018

April 5 and 6, Dopersduin (Schoorl)

A little bit earlier in spring this year, we are once again happy to invite you for the annual NVTB-retreat on the 5th and 6th of April (2018) in Schoorl. We aim for a pleasant, informal, and yet informative meeting where scientists and students working in Theoretical Biology will present and discuss their research. As in previous years, the meeting is held at Dopersduin, located at the edge of the dunes of Schoorl. Full registration includes tea/coffee, breakfast and other meals, and an overnight stay at Dopersduin.


On Thursday evening we will have the annual meeting (general assembly) with members of the NVTB. After this meeting we traditionally take a long, nocturnal hike to the beach and back.

We invite you to submit an abstract for giving a talk. You may choose between a short (10 min + 5 min discussion) talk, or a normal one (20 min + 5 min discussion). We encourage young scientists (master students and PhD students) to apply for talks, also to present unfinished work. The deadline for registration/abstract submission is the 16th of March. You will be notified by March 26th whether your submission has been accepted. The final program, including all abstracts, will be sent to NVTB members and subscribers to the meeting by e-mail.

If you have further questions please contact Bram.

Kind regards,

Jaap Kaandorp, Bram van Dijk and Lotte de Vries
