EBRS Call For Visual Data Sets

EBRS call for visual data sets

As a field, we have the one-time chance to develop a digital installation of Chronobiology for general audiences.

In March 2023, EPFL Pavilions, the art-science gallery situated at the heart of the Swiss university EPFL campus, in Lausanne will open an exhibition designed to immerse visitors in the relevance of chronobiology and the impact of light as mirrored in contemporary works of art, design, and architecture. 

The SRBR and EBRS have been invited to develop an “Introduction to chronobiology and its history”. This involves collecting digital items for the following topics:

  • Entrainment, Zeitgebers and Chronotype
  • Circadian Rhythms / Endogenous Clocks (including studies of humans in isolation)
  • Evolution of Circadian Rhythms 
  • Seasonal, Tidal, Lunar, Clocks
  • Chrono-health and Medicine 
  • Circadian Wiring (Anatomy of Input-Clock-utput)
  • Modeling of Circadian Clocks 
We now ask your help to contribute as many chronobiology-related digital items as possible that you may possess or know of. We need high-resolution pictures/photographs, historical or experimental, figures/graphs, short videos, animations as examples of specific mechanisms, etc. Copyright-free items or items where copyright is easily obtained are preferable (your own photos, your own figures).
 
The aim is to make this exhibition available on the internet after the exhibition is over so that all of us can use it for teaching and representing our field to the world.
This is a huge chance, so let’s crowd-source the largest chronobiological collection ever!
