Call for Abstracts

Applicants are invited to share their scientific results at the event as a poster, by first submitting an abstract with their application. In addition a small number of short talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. Posters will be displayed on poster boards in a dedicated area at the venue, and should not exceed A0 size 841 x 1189 mm (width x length). Short talks will be 10 mins long. 

Abstracts must be submitted via the online participant portal before the deadline of  June 1, 2019 (also for FEBS YTF awards as well as for University of Innsbruck DP AGE-REG grants and ITC grants for MitoEAGLE members applications, see Travel Grants).

Accepted abstracts will be searchable on the event website around the time of the event, and collated in an abstract book/pdf.
