International Symposium organized by the Students of the Graduate School of Life Sciences

    Symposium 2014


    We are very proud to announce that this year’s International PhD symposium will take place on October 14th and 15th at the Rudolf-Virchow-Center in Würzburg, Germany.

    The 2014 symposium, entitled "Eureka!", will bring together young scientists of the Würzburg Life Sciences community. It is organized solely by a group of around 20 PhD students of the GSLS.

    The two-day event includes talks from both top-level scientists and PhD students themselves with the goal of giving an insight into cutting-edge research taking place across the world in disciplines encompassing all the sections within the GSLS. In addition, around 100 students will have the opportunity to present their research with a poster presentation, receive an evaluation and win a prize for the best poster. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to take part in informal “Meet the Speakers” coffee breaks to directly interact with the invited experts. If you are looking for information concerning future career choices, you should attend the career session on the second day.

    The registration desk at the conference will be open in the mornings from 8.00 to 9.00 a.m. You will need to register every morning, and prior to the poster session if presenting a poster, to receive a certificate of participation.

    Thanks to our generous sponsors, you will be able to take part in exciting contests, like the Writing Contest, the NIKON Image Contest, the Exhibition Rally and win sensational prizes. On the evening of the second day, we’ll host our famous Symposium’s Party.

    Don’t miss this unique opportunity! Register today! We hope to see you on October 14th and 15th at the symposium and we are very much looking forward to two days of exciting presentations.
