Our program includes one plenary lecture by Dr. Nóra Bunford, two sessions of oral presentations by selected speakers and a midday poster session. In the late afternoon, each registered attendee can participate in one of the thematic workshops (Career forum, Presentation skills, How to apply for grants?). All sessions and workshops will take place at the ELTE Lágymányosi Campus, Northern Building (Pázmány Péter stny. 1/A, Budapest).
Please note that the official language of the conference is English. All presentations must be prepared accordingly.
All registered participants must upload a scientific abstract by 23:59, 15th December 2021. Check Abstract Submission page for more details. During the abstract submission, each participant can indicate whether they want to present only a poster or want to be considered for oral presentation as well. Please note that, due to the limited time frame, not everyone who applies for oral presentation will be selected.
Formal requirements for the abstract submission are the followings:
- The abstract should be written in English.
- Title length: max 300 characters, including spaces.
- Maximum number of authors is 15.
- Abstract body text: max 2500 characters, including spaces.
- Acknowledgements: max 500 characters, including spaces.
Presenters selected for oral presentation must prepare a 10-minute presentation with slide show (preferred format: PowerPoint). For the lecturers, computer presentation facilities will be provided. Lecturers are kindly asked to give their presentations on USB stick to the technician before the morning or the afternoon session. Any special needs (e.g. the use of own laptop) should be discussed in time with the technician.
We ask the presenters to keep the time limits strictly.
An audience award for the best presentation will be assigned at the end of the conference.
All registered participants, who submitted an abstract, must prepare a mini-poster (A4 size), except for those who were selected for oral presentation. Poster presenters will be assigned to groups of 4-6 and each participant will present their work to the others in the group in a less formal manner.
Ideal mini-posters are not shrunk versions of regular scientific posters. Keep text as little as possible, present the most essential data only. Keep in mind that there might be significant differences in scientific background and career stage among group members within each group.
Poster session will take place after lunch for 60 minutes. During this time, all participants should present their poster in the group. Please respect other group members’ time: try to save time for others to present their work and leave room for discussion.
Digital posters are permitted, but technical support (e.g. tablets) for these will not be provided.
There will be three different thematic workshops in the afternoon. For detailed description of each workshop, please visit the Workshops page.
After the registration is closed, each registered participant will be asked to choose a workshop.
Please note that, due to the limited number of available places, not everyone will be assigned to the workshop they preferred.
All participants will be informed in time about the workshop they can attend. Please respect the organizers’ decision and attend the adequate workshop only.
