Pierre-Gilles de Gennes winter school Cargèse 2008

Biophysical topics in cell adhesion, motility, and neuroscience

February 18- 22, 2008

The School is intended to be international and will welcome graduate students (PhD and Master) from all over the world. Lectures will be given in English. There is no registration fee. Lodging and lunches are covered by the Institut de Cargèse. The attendance is limited to 50 participants. Participants will be required to present a poster on their current work. Titles and abstracts will be posted on-line shortly before the school.

Participants' host laboratories are expected to pay for transportation to Ajaccio and for dinners. The school will provide limited bus transportation (see General Information).  If you do not take the bus, you will have to arrange and pay for your own ground transportation. For non-european applicants, the school will partially subsidize the travel expenses for a few selected applicants.
