EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Biological oscillators: rhythms and synchronisation across scales

March 19 to March 22



This conference will take place at EMBL Heidelberg, with the option to attend virtually.


Symposium Overview

Are you interested to discuss oscillatory phenomena and biological dynamical systems, accross temporal and spatial scales? At this symposium, multiple disciplines will come together in order to discuss common themes linked to oscillations, rhythms and synchronization, in a broad range of contexts. The 2024 edition of this established symposium will expand the discussion to the scale of ecological oscillations and willl also highlight the interplay between internal and environmental rhythms.

This meeting provides a unique platform to bring together a community working at the interface between quantitative biology, complex oscillatory systems, modelling and theory. As with the editions in 2015, 2018 and 2022, this meeting aims to serve as a bridge between experimentalists and theorists and to reveal common challenges and approaches that can be shared across fields.


Session topics

  • Oscillation mechanisms across different scales: from circadian clock to embryonic oscillators to biochemical (metabolic) oscillations
  • Oscillation function across scale and context
  • Synchronisation of coupled oscillators
  • Ecological rhythms and oscillations
  • Mathematical modelling and computational approaches
  • Imaging approaches to study oscillatory dynamics
