Hot Topics in Bionanoscience ('Meet-the-speaker')

Course description: Speakers from all over the world are invited to present pedagogical introductions to their field with an emphasis on basic concepts. Apart from an introductory lecture, the participants of this course will have an additional discussion with the invited speaker. During that extra hour, they will discuss a recent paper and the holy grails of the field.

The first hour is a lecture and open for everyone to attend (in this case this BN seminar at 12:30-14:00h, "Plenty of room at the top: integrative insights from the physics of animal behavior"). The second hour is reserved as a discussion hour with the lecturer for the registered class of PhD students and postdocs.

Audience: Registered PhD students and postdocs (see registration form below).

Credits: Those participants who attended (pro-actively) two Hot Topics sessions will be awarded 1 Graduate School Credit (GSC). Thus this session will 'count' for 0.5 GSC.

Preparation: PhD students who have registered for the Hot Topics course need to prepare for the session by reading the articles listed below.
