About the Workshop

Over the past decades, this EMBO Workshop on Regeneration & Tissue Repair has become the key international meeting for scientists investigating basic biological questions in regeneration and repair using whole animals or organ/tissue "systems" approaches. This EMBO Workshop attracts scientists from all around the world, who would normally not meet, that have diverse expertise and use various research models from invertebrates to mammals. Each meeting approaches regeneration from different angles. This upcoming meeting will focus on the cellular and molecular relationships between development, regeneration and aging, regeneration-induced immune responses, cellular behaviour/signalling, the diversity of vertebrate and invertebrate research models and their shared or model-specific mechanisms underlying regeneration. This EMBO Workshop will also cover a more conceptual, i.e., historical, and philosophical approach to stimulate “out of the box” thinking about regeneration. This meeting is meant to propel our understanding of the field, the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms, stimulate discussions, and foster the development of new perspectives and collaborations. The overall goal of this EMBO Workshop is to significantly advance our understanding of how regeneration is coordinated in a whole animal or organ, providing new venues and opportunities to enhance the non- or reduced mammalian regenerative capacities and develop more effective therapeutic approaches to convert healing into regeneration.

Selection criteria

Participants will be selected by the scientific organizing committee on the basis of their abstract submission. Selected abstracts / participants will give their presentation either in the form of a 15min (10+5) presentation or a poster. Among the abstracts selected for a poster, a limited number will also be selected for a 2min Poster teaser talk.

The selection criteria are:

1. Quality and relevance of the abstract in regard to the topic of the meeting

2. Originality/novelty/contribution to the field (unpublished data will be favoured)

3. Fit to one of the sessions and contribute to stimulating exchanges

4. Gender balance of applicants

5. Career stage (priority given to PhD students, postdocs and early-stage PI’s)

6. Diversity of countries of origin

7. Diversity of research models, approaches, techniques

8. Previous attendance / repeat presenters

Abstract guidelines

Abstracts must be submitted in English and include the title, authors list, and affiliations (each affiliation should be listed once). Abstracts should be submitted with the agreement of all listed authors and organized in Context, Methodology, Results & Discussion.

Character limit: Up to 300 words max (title, author list and affiliations excluded).

Poster specifications

Poster size should not exceed 84,1 x 118,9 cm (DIN A0).

Travel grants and registration fee waivers

All participants, limited to 150, will be accommodated in the three-star Hotel DELCLOY located in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France. The idyllic hotel, that is engaged in its societal responsibilities (ex. professional equality between women & men, Environmental commitments (water fountains, plastic waste reduction, etc)) is in the heart of a wooded park of 3 hectares that also contains a swimming pool, has private access to the Mediterranean Sea and offers plenty of opportunities to discuss/exchange while walking along the Sea. Accommodation (rooms for single, double or family occupancy) is available for all participants. PhD students and PostDocs will share rooms. The workshop events will take place in the dedicated auditorium (150pers), fully equipped with the necessary audio-visual equipment. Posters session and Sponsor exhibitions will take place in the “salle du Parc”, that is close to the auditorium and to the bar. Catering (lunch, dinner, coffee breaks, drinks and snacks) will be offered on site, in the restaurant and close to the auditorium. We will arrange onsite infant and childcare in dedicated play areas and spaces.
