Quantitative Biology on the Hawaiian Islands
February 17-20, 2014

The Winter q-bio meeting brings together scientists and engineers who are interested in all areas of q-bio. The venue for 2014 is the Hilton Waikoloa Village<http://www.hiltonwaikoloavillage.com/>, which is located on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii's Big Island. The resort lets you experience breathtaking tropical gardens, abundant wildlife, award-winning dining, world-class shopping, art and culture, and an array of activities. The Island of Hawaii is the youngest and biggest in the Hawaiian chain, providing a vast canvas of environments to discover--home of one of the world's most active volcanoes (Kilauea), the most massive mountain in the world (Maunaloa), and the largest park in the state (Hawaii Volcanoes National Park).

As requested by participants at the last meeting, a number of selected contributed talks will be interspersed with the invited talks during the plenary morning sessions (in addition to the contributed talks in the breakout sessions).
