Student sessions have been extremely popular during the inaugural V4SDB meeting and at Szeged we would like to build on their success.

This type of special activity aims to bring together students one day before the official start of the conference in order to allow them to socialize and also to get some hands on experience on a wide array of important model organisms. Students will also have the opportunity to present short talks and engage in informal discussions. 

SESSIONS ARE FREE TO STUDENTS, SO DO NOT HESITATE TO COME ONE DAY EARLIER!


 

The student workshop is supported by the Visegrád Fund. All student registrants are invited to apply for a REGISTRATION FEE WAIVER, provided by the Visegrád Fund. See details under the REGISTRATION menu.
