- 4 nights full board accommodation (double occupancy)
- Additional meals (coffee breaks, welcome party)
- 21-25 September 2021: attendance the EMBO | FEBS Lecture Course
Information will be available soon.
To maintain a maximal degree of interaction between all attendees, the number of participants will be limited to 120 for students and postdoctoral fellows (the main target of the lecture series) and 22 speakers, (including 3 member of the organization committee) that we invited and that have agreed to participate. In addition, positions will be available to a few senior scientists (having a total of approximately 30 PIs) with experience in different areas of mitochondrial biology.
Based on the experience from the previous advanced lecture courses, we expect about 80% of applicants to be from Europe, 10% from North America and 10% from other countries. As previous courses also experienced a high number of applications from students and post- docs, selection of the participants will be done by the Organizing Committee. We try to achieve that the participants at the meeting reflect the broad field of mitochondrial biology. Thus, we will consider as many different research groups as possible, which may require to limit the participants from one group to two students. Moreover, we will attempt to balance different topics as well as model systems and give special considerations to newly emerging aspects of mitochondrial biology. As for the invited speakers (50% females), a balance between male/female participants will also be maintained in the selection of applicants.
For senior scientists: In the case their number outnumbers the expected figures, precedence will be given to scientists with experience in mitochondrial biology.
Submitted abstracts should be no longer than 300 words, including title and headings.
Each author will have a board space of (HxW) 180 cm x 96 cm (5ft 10in x 3ft 2in), on which to mount the poster. The poster should be designed to summarize current research in graphic forms. Presentations should be self-explanatory so that the author is free to supplement and discuss particular points. For easy identification, provide a poster heading, listing its title and author(s), identical to that on the official program.
The poster board is double-sided with one presentation on each side. Your assigned number will be in the upper left corner of the poster board. The boards will be arranged in numerical order.
The poster sessions have a designated time in which the poster presenters are requested to be available at their poster to discuss their research with the meeting attendees.
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.
Specific travel grants and fee waivers are available for participants of any nationality working in laboratories in Chile, India, Singapore and Taiwan. To apply, please send an email directly to the meeting organisers justifying your request.
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. Eligible costs include fees for a caregiver or child-care facility, travel costs for a caregiver, or travel costs for taking the child to the meeting etc. Please indicate on the registration form whether you would like to be considered for the grant. Please also describe how you intend to use the child care grant and specify the sum that you will need.
