Participants will be selected on the basis of submitted abstracts. Selection criteria include:
- research excellence
- novelty of science
- relevance for the histone variant field
Many of the in-person slots will be given to early career scientists. We will prioritise researchers who are at key transition points in their career.
Please indicate all authors and their short affiliation (Institution, City, Country), a title and short text describing your research. Please limit your abstract text to a maximum of 200 words. Selected participants will present an e-poster or a short talk. Please indicate on the abstract submission form if you wish to be considered for one of the short talks by choosing "oral presentation".
Poster specifications and short presentations
In addition to short talks, we will select participants to present in the e-poster session. Selected presenters will be asked to prepare a maximum of 5 slides for a 5-minutes short presentation instead of a poster. All participants will provide a recording of a 1-minute teaser with 1 slide that we will make available to all participants prior to the start of the workshop.
Due to current circumstances, we can accept only a limited number of participants to join us in person and the large majority ofparticipants will be asked to choose the virtual option. Please let us know why we should prioritise you for an in-person slot.
