We will give preference to young researchers from Europe, in particular young lab heads (less than 5 years independent positions), post-doctoral fellows and PhD students. The selection from this group of applicants will be based on the quality of the science outlined in the abstract. We will also consider selecting individuals whose research would substantially benefit from attending this workshop. For post-doctoral fellows and PhD students we will ask for a letter of recommendation from their supervisor to help clarify the benefits attending the workshop will have for their career.
In the event of the workshop being oversubscribed, the organizing committee will select individual participants based on the following criteria:
- Scientific content of abstract
- Scientific relevance of conference to participants own work
- Number of participants from the same lab and
- Date of application.
Participants are welcome to submit abstracts on these topics, (but not limited to):
- The secretory pathway and unconventional secretion
- Trafficking and disease
- Endosomal/ lysosomal pathway and beyond
- Regulation by signaling mechanisms
- The inter-organelle communication at membrane contact sites, their role in lipid transfer and autophagy
- Signaling, membrane traffic and metabolism
- Membrane mechanics
Abstracts must be submitted using the online abstract submission link. Do not fax, mail or e-mail your abstracts, as they will not be considered. All abstracts must be submitted in English.
Please bring one printed copy of your poster:
1m x 1.5m (length x height)
The posters will be available for viewing throughout the entire meeting. Each person will give a brief oral presentation. In addition, participants may display ‘virtual posters’ (e.g. live demonstration of research on presenter's laptop).
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.
Special travel grants and registration fee waivers
A limited number of travel grants and registration fee waivers are available for scientists working in Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Turkey. Grants are allocated on the basis of the quality of the submitted abstract.
A maximum of 700 Euros per participant are available to cover registration fees, travel, and accommodation (no additional subsistence costs can be covered). To apply, please indicate the itemized amount requested in the travel grants section of the registration form.
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.
