What is the aim of the workshop?
The Young Researchers’ Workshop (YRW) offers the unique opportunity to present own data
as a short talk (10+5 min) in a free and relaxed atmosphere. Special emphasis is laid on an
intense discussion between all participants.
When does the YRW take place?
The workshop is held on Sunday, August 28, 2022 as a pre-symposium of the Annual GA
Conference in Thessaloniki, Greece. It will start at 10:00 and end at 15:30.
Who can submit an abstract?
PhD students and early stage post-docs (only within their first year) are invited to submit an
abstract for a short talk. Only high-quality abstracts can be considered. The YRW jury
consisting of the Professors Alessandra Braca, Robert Fürst, Jürg Gertsch and Anastasia
Karioti will review the abstracts and take the decision on whether a short talk will be granted
What happens during the YRW?
After a welcome note, the YRW will start with an impulse lecture by a young but established
scientist who will give insights into his/her area of research. He or she will also highlight who
to step into and advance a scientific career. The main part of the workshop will be dedicated
to short lectures. The YRW jury will select the two best presentations and will bestow the
prizes to the two awardees in the YRW closing session.
What do the prizes include?
The two best presentations will be awarded with two categories of prizes: The Discovery
Award (1,000 EUR sponsored by Professor Jürg Gertsch) and the Bionorica YRW Award
(600 EUR sponsored by the company Bionorica SE). In the addition to the prizes, the two
awardees will get the great opportunity to give their presentation also in a special slot
of the main congress.
