The accurate, appropriate and timely control and execution of cell division regulates virtually every aspect of biology from proliferation through development to disease.  Universal as cell division is, there is great variation in the contexts, rates and topology within which the cell cycle is triggered and executed. Each distinct circumstance, be it an isolated cell in a unique nutrient environment or, a particular cell in a particular tissue, imposes distinct demands upon the core cell cycle control and genome segregation machinery. Cell division control and execution must therefore be remodelled to suit a spectrum of contexts, niches, or the more radical demands to reduce, or eliminate, the genome compliment.  While repeated rounds of symmetrical division maybe favoured by some cell types, many stem cells maintain stemness through asymmetrical division, germ cells pursue reductional divisions and cancer cells often appear to ignore the rule book and divide however they possibly can.  Insight into such diversity and control continues to reveal how much more there is to learn about cell and nuclear division.  The Conferences Jacques Monod meetings on the Cell Cycle provide a unique forum for discussing and debating these principles and the latest revelations in the field.  The next meeting in this series will be no exception. A stellar line up of international speakers will be describe their research at the cutting edge of the cell cycle and division fields to set the scene for engaging debates in the beautiful setting of the CNRS Roscoff Marine Research Station.  The intimate scale of these meetings (115 attendees in total), means that, in the likely scenario of over-subscription, the organisers may approach the heads of labs from whom multiple applications have been received to select one candidate for attendance.

Applications submission

Registration fee (including board and lodging)

550 € for PhD students
650 € for other participants


Application for registration   details here :
The total number of participants is limited to 115 and all participants are expected to attend for the whole duration of the conference. Selection is made on the basis of the affinity of potential participants with the topics of the conference. Scientists and PhD Students interested in the meeting should deposit on line :

- their curriculum vitae
- the proof of their student status
- the list of their main publications for the 3 last years
- the abstract of their presentation:

The abstract must respect the following template: TemplateResumeFile
- First line: title
- Second line: list of authors. Presenting author underlined
- Third line: author's addresses
- Fourth line: e-mail of the presenting author
Abstracts should be no longer than an A4 page and preferably be submitted in Times New Roman, font size 10 pts. No figures. ".docx" file format.

After deadline, the organizers will select the participants. Except in some particular cases approved by the Chairperson, it is recommended that all selected participants present their work during the conference, either in poster form or by a brief in- session talk. The organizers choose the form in which the presentations are made. No payment will be sent with application. Information on how and when to pay will be mailed in due time to those selected.
