Our Annual Meeting is the melting pot of the Austrian Life Science Community - a place to listen to renowned speakers, for participants to present their latest work and for all of us to network in a family-like atmosphere. This year, we will put this spirit online!
We transfer the conference into the virtual realm using new tools whilst keeping up the spirit of learning from each other, exchanging ideas and giving each participant ample opportunities to discuss her/his research with colleagues, friends and senior scientists. Here is a sneak preview of what we envisage:

 September 21-23 will be the virtual kick-off event (2 sessions/day á 2h). You will hear lectures from renowned Plenary Speakers, our Austrian Life Science Awards winners and get insights into the latest Corona research conducted in Austria. We will feature the Life Science Career Fair and will hear and discuss about cryo-EM and healthy ageing in the 21st Century, as Graz special contribution. Our much appreciated exhibition will be an interactive VirtualExpo, which will accompany us starting from the kick-off event on throughout the period of all Life Science Tuesdays.

Following the kick-off event, we will have online Life Science Tuesdays on a bi-weekly basis, always in the afternoon - featuring invited talks, short talks, flash talks, „poster“ presentations, workshops and the VirtualExpo. Each Life Science Tuesday will focus on a specific scientific topic and one batch will be held from October to December 2020 and a second batch from January to March 2021.

Stay tuned for further information as we roll out our program step by step!
