Young Researchers’ Workshop (YRW) 2021

held as pre-symposium of the annual GA conference on Sunday, September 5, 2021 from 11:00 to 16:30 Abstract submission deadline: June 15, 2021 Registration fee: 20 EUR

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 min plus 5 min discussion) 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, September 5, 2021 as a pre-symposium of the Annual GA Conference 2021. It will start at 10 am and end at approximately 3 pm.


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 or not. If the abstract is not accepted for the YRW, it will automatically be evaluated as regular submission for the main conference.


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 YRW 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 Innovation Award (1,000 EUR sponsored by Professor Jürg Gertsch) and the Bionorica YRW Award (600 EUR sponsored by the company Bionorica SE).
