We are pleased to announce the eighth Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory meeting on Network Biology. The meeting will begin on the evening of Tuesday, March 14, 2023, and end after lunch on Saturday, March 18. Abstracts should contain new and unpublished material. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. 

The meeting covers a wide topical range focused on understanding the role of molecular networks for biological phenomena. It is intended to foster a cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas and approaches among experimental and computational scientists for using network science to understand diseases and phenotypes in animals and plants. The topic of "The Future of Network Biology" will be discussed by a panel of scientists at different career stages with complementary expertise on the topic. A number of internationally renowned leaders in the field will share their latest results, while the majority of oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts.

Please bring this notice to the attention of any of your colleagues who may be interested in participating in the meeting.

All abstracts must be submitted by the abstract deadline. Late registrations may be accepted after the abstract deadline if the meeting is not oversubscribed. In the event of over-subscription, every effort will be made to ensure that all groups who wish to participate will be represented. The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Please apply in writing via email to Samantha Mastronardi and state your financial needs. Preference will be given to those who submit abstracts.

Partial support for this meeting is provided by the National Human Genome Research Institute of the National Institutes of Health
