Organized by Ann HermundstadJames Fitzgerald, and Allyson Sgro, this workshop is intended as a "by the students, for the students" meeting. Other than the organizers and invited speakers, participants will include only students and postdocs working on a variety of problems in theoretical biophysics, broadly defined.

Attendees will have the opportunity to present as well as learn from one another. They will give 20-minute talks on their own research questions, as well as in-depth 45-minute whiteboard tutorials on techniques central to their research. To promote spontaneous interactions and community discussions, tutorials will be chalk talk style.

We are interested in those who will be able to participate in and actively contribute to all activities, so space is limited and participants are expected to stay for the duration. We see this meeting as a unique learning opportunity for everyone involved and intend for it to be a valuable and enjoyable experience.

Janelia will cover the cost of accommodation, meals and reasonable travel expenses for accepted participants. We especially encourage applications from women and those who identify with groups that are traditionally underrepresented in science.
