Visualization Art in Theoretical Biology

Editorial team



Data analysis, numerical treatment of a model, or simulation results can result in stunning images which represent pieces of art just by themselves. We aim at collecting images which were created in the process of research in theoretical biology, and publishing a collection of these images in a book. Our partner in this project is Springer Publishing (Heidelberg), showing strong interest and support.
In addition, the images will be prepared for exhibition at conferences and public places of participating academic institutions.


We are inviting contributions consisting of the following two parts:

The Stunning Image
Preferentially generated as scalable vector graphics (EPS or SVG) or with a possibility for reproduction at very high resolution. We strongly welcome images that were postprocessed solely with the aim at enhancing visual impact (artist's touch). All images must be related to a topic in the field of theoretical biology. They may be derived from data analysis, modeling or simulation, but also submission of 'free art' is possible, if the connection to theoretical biology is made clear by the artist.

Extended and Structured Abstract (1 page)
This abstract should contain the following sections:
1. Title for the piece of ar
t, list of authors and affiliations.
2. Scientific Background: What does the image show? Which model or tool was used to create it? What was the biological question?
3. Which steps were involved in postprocessing to enhance visual impact?


We will soon update the page with instructions on how to submit your contribution. Until then please contact our editorial team directly.
