We will make every effort to recruit a diverse geographic, gender and career-stage group of presenters and participants. Additionally, as our conference is focused on biodiversity which is often found in countries that are severely underrepresented in science, we will actively recruit researchers from African or South American countries.
Participant selection will be performed by the meeting organizers:
Gary Lewin, Max-Delbrück-Centre, Berlin
Leslie Leinwand, University of Colorado, USA
Jane Reznick, Max-Delbrück-Centre, Berlin
We have 26 confirmed speakers across five sessions focusing on topics related to sensory systems, ageing & metabolism, ethology, bioinformatics and omics, and disease models. For each session we will include “flash” talks (shorter form talks) which will be selected from the pool of submitted abstracts. For selection of these talks we will consider research topic as an additional criteria to ensure balanced distribution across the meeting’s themes. Whenever possible we will attempt to showcase scientific results from earlier stage researchers. Flash talks will be selected by the meeting organizers.
Abstracts should contain a brief summary of the experimental question, methods and main findings the authors wish to present at the conference. Research questions should overlap with one of the main topical themes of the conference: ageing & metabolism, bioinformatics & omics, ethology, disease models, or sensory systems.
Presenting authors should be listed first.
Abstract length should not exceed 300 words.

A limited number of travel grants are available for participants. Applicants do not need to apply separately for travel grants for this event but should indicate on the registration form if they wish to be considered for a travel grant. Selection of awardees is handled directly by the organizer who will notify all eligible participants. More information is available at EMBO Travel Grants' page.
Child care grant
EMBO Courses and Workshops offers grants to offset additional child care costs incurred by participants or speakers when participating at any EMBO Courses and Workshop funded meeting.
