YSF Welcome

The 18th FEBS Young Scientists' Forum

Dear Young Scientists,

On behalf of the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS), it is our great pleasure to announce the upcoming 18th FEBS Young Scientists' Forum (YSF), which will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, from July 4th to 7th, 2018.

The YSF is a satellite meeting preceding the annual FEBS Congress, aiming to provide PhD students and young postdocs from the FEBS Constituent Societies with opportunities to meet, discuss projects, exchange ideas, and to start building a network of colleagues and friends.

The YSF is traditionally organized as an international event with a friendly and informal atmosphere. All participants will get together to present their research topics as posters after delivering a one-minute presentation advertising the main content of their work. In addition, selected participants will have the opportunity to present their work as short oral presentations. The YSF will also include keynote lectures by distinguished speakers and a roundtable session on the support of scientific career development. The scientific sessions will be complemented by an attractive social programme.

About one hundred young scientists will be selected to take part in the YSF. All YSF participants will also attend the 43rd FEBS Congress in Prague, from July 7th to 12th, 2018, with financial support from FEBS. FEBS provides a YSF grant to the selected participants that covers Congress registration, accommodation for both the YSF and FEBS Congress and most travel expenses. For detailed information on how to apply, including eligibility criteria, please see the YSF Applications page.

The 18th YSF Organizing Committee is very happy to invite young scientists from across the FEBS area to join this exciting symposium. We are looking forward to receiving your application!
