Dear Mechanobiology Enthusiast,
During normal years we would reach you at this time to share the final details of the next edition of the event, to be held in Camogli by the end of March/beginning of April. Due to the global pandemic, we decided to skip N4M2021, heading for the 2022 edition of the conference. The guest organizer for the next edition is the University of Aachen, and we will share soon some preliminary details.
Nevertheless, we know that one of the interesting aspects of N4M is the collaboration with our sponsor, showcasing premier nanoengineering technology for the study of mechanobiology. We are organizing a cycle of 1h webinars hosted by our sponsors, to know more about their technology, and the science that it enables. We will get back to you soon on this, sharing the full program and a link to register to the specific events.
Finally, we want to seize the opportunity of this email to remind all scientists belonging to the N4M community that the special issue in EBJ is currently open (see details below). The final deadline for submission is set to April 15th, but if you are interested to participate, we would appreciate if you can get in touch with Silvia Caponi, in order to tune the special issue at its best.
Have a nice and safe Mechanobiology week,
The organizing committee
Notes on the Special Issue
The special issue will be published in the European
Biophysics Journal, EBJ, edited by Springer (https://www.springer.com/journal/249). It is a reference journal in the field of biophysics and the official organ of the European Biophysical Societies' Association, EBSA, one of the
institutional supporters of N4M2020.
The journal policy ensures that the paper can be published
free of charge. Optionally, if it is preferred by the authors, it is also
possible to choose the open access option. To publish open access, authors
are required to pay an article-processing charge.
The journal publishes a wide range of article types, including:
- Original Articles and Biophysics Letters
- Technical Primers, providing a comprehensive but focused summary of the
development and application of a technique.
- Methods papers.
The special issue will be edited by the organizing committee and the deadline
for the paper submission is the 15th of April.
Everything is already set up to receive our articles: in the
submission procedure, please, select the special Issue related to our
