Why attend?

Oscillations are abundant - from hormonal oscillations with periods of days and months, to genetic fluctuations in the range of hours (circadian clock, embryonic oscillators), and metabolic and biochemical oscillations in the order of minutes (glycolytic oscillations) and seconds (Calcium-dynamics) - oscillations are central to biology across different temporal and spatial scales.

At this symposium multiple disciplines will come together in order to discuss common mechanisms underlying the generation of oscillations


  • Oscillation mechanisms across different scales: from circadian clock to embryonic oscillators to biochemical (metabolic) oscillations
  • Oscillation function: besides known clock functions, other emerging concepts of oscillatory dynamics as a basis for temporal signal encoding mechanisms
  • Quantitative/imaging approaches in order to study oscillatory dynamics
  • Synchronisation of coupled oscillators, such as coupled oscillators and synchronisation in various contexts and at different scales
  • Mathematical modelling and computational approaches to oscillatory dynamics
