July 25-28, 2017
Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ
The q-bio community emphasizes the integration of theory, computation and quantitative experimentation to understand, predict, and control biological phenomena. The summer meeting has a single track program including opening and closing banquets, plenary talks, contributed talks (25+), poster spotlight (16+), two evening poster sessions, discussions framing grand challenges, and opportunities for networking and fostering collaborations. The structure of the meeting and its coordination with the q-bio summer schools promotes rich interactions among students, postdoctoral scholars and faculty.

We encourage submissions from junior and underrepresented researchers and accepted submissions from such researchers which will be preferentially selected for contributed 20-minute contributed talks.
The Advisory Committee will select poster presentations among all submitted one-page abstracts. The criteria for selection will include originality and scientific soundness, resonance of the submission with the rest of the talks in the conference program, and broadening participation from underrepresented groups.
The deadline for submission is March 31, 2017. Please use the form below to submit your abstract. If you are submitting a contributed abstract, you must use the abstract template provided. Please save your abstract in PDF format before uploading to the submission form below.
ALL contributed abstracts submitted should be in the abstract template and CANNOT exceed one-page. Submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines will not be reviewed. After you submit your abstract, the Advisory Committee will review and make final selections. You will receive an email confirming acceptance and the session your oral presentation and/or poster has been assigned to.
All presenters (oral and/or poster) must also register separately for the conference. After submitting your abstract using the form below, you will be given the option to continue with your conference registration.
NOTE: If you need to replace/resubmit your abstract, please send directly to Bianca Kovalenko via email and indicate it is a replacement. Please do NOT resubmit using this form.
Papers may be submitted related to a Special Issue in Physical Biology.
