About the Workshop

The kinetochore is a dynamic proteinaceous structure that forms at centromeric chromatin. It connects spindle microtubules to chromosomes in order to ensure the equal segregation of chromosomes during mitosis and meiosis. Over the years, the Dynamic Kinetochore meeting has become the major venue for discussing the molecular details of kinetochore formation, structure and control and their relevance to cancer and other human diseases. The meeting encompasses the latest unpublished and cutting-edge research in the field and includes topics that span different disciplines (from biochemistry and biophysics to animal biology), and organisms (from yeast to human). Traditionally, the meeting fosters early career principal investigators, students and postdocs but also features key senior members of the field.

Selection criteria

Selection will be made based on (i) research excellence, (ii) novelty of science, and (iii) relevance for topic of the meeting. We also encourage participation of those that have an orthogonal view or use a novel approach that can benefit the field. We aim for a reasonable gender balance that reflects the overall distribution of gender among all applications. All accepted participants will have the opportunity and be requested to present their work as poster or short talk. We seek to have ~60% representation from students and post-doctoral researchers as well as good representation of the international community. If there are too many equally qualified applicants, we will consider demographics and gender and give priority to junior scientists, postdocs and young group leaders.

Abstract guidelines

The abstract should display all authors and their full affiliation, a title, and a short text describing your research. Please indicate if you wish to present a short talk.
