Seventh International Symposium and Thematic School on DEB Theory for Metabolic Organization

Please see below for some information on this event. For more information, please see their event webpage.

In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, international travel is and may remain unpredictable. Even more importantly, as scientists, we cannot ignore the rising impact of academic travel on the environment, as well as the geographic and economic barriers that may limit attendance of scientist working remotely or with limited funds. While the traditional format of academic conferences seems essential to establish and foster professional relationships, the increasing availability of fast and reliable internet connections and the development of modern teleconference solutions provides an opportunity for a paradigm shift.

While we are working on the organization of the DEB2021 School and Symposium in a traditional, in person, form, we are committed to developing ways for participants to attend the different events of DEB2021 virtually. This is new for all of us, and we are still working on the details, but we hope that these efforts will provide suitable options for each of us to safely contribute to DEB research around the world!
