The EMBO Workshop "Autophagy in brain health and disease" will take place as a mostly in-person event. However, due to the COVID situation, we would like to offer a virtual participation option.
For in-person participation, the organizers assure that all the necessary security measures will be guaranteed in accordance with the COVID-19 procedures, established by the Spanish government at the moment of the meeting.
Virtual participants will have access to all presentations of speakers and oral abstracts but not to poster sessions. However, they will have access to the book of abstracts, which will include information on both oral abstracts and posters. Virtual participation is limited to 50 participants.
- Accommodation (3 nights) in twin room (single +200 Euro)

Applicants will be selected based on their relevance to the field of brain autophagy, with strong consideration for PhD students and early-stage postdocs, and paying attention to a proper balance of gender, demographic background, and basic and applied researchers.

A total of 11 applicants will be selected for short talks.
The main text of the abstract should not exceed 200 words and should include background, experimental approach, key findings and significance to the field.
