Please note that the First International ADAPTOMICS Symposium from March 31 to April 3 2014 will be held as an international conference. All talks and poster presentations should be held as is common at conferences. Unfortunately, there can be NO panel review with proposal presentations for the 2nd round proposals. Instead, the panel will meet in Bonn. In addition, some members of the review panel - but not all of them - will be present at the Symposium.
