When: 25-26 August 2020
Where: Evolutionary Biology Centre, UU, Uppsala. Lecture hall Zootis.
The lecture hall Zootis is located on the top floor by entrance 9. However, entrance 9 is closed at the moment so you will have to enter in entrance 14 (Norbyvägen 14) and follow the signs from there.
Who: PhD students, early-career researchers and senior researchers working in all fields related to reproductive biology, chemicals, health and environment.
What: A workshop organized by the Swedish Academic Consortium on Chemical Safety (SWACCS) and Centre for Reproductive Biology in Uppsala (CRU), offering scientific seminars, extensive networking opportunities, and an occasion to learn more about visualizing and communicating your science.
Why: Because networking is fun; communicating your science effectively is one of the most meaningful things to learn; meeting other junior and senior researchers and telling them about your research opens up new opportunities; as a PhD student, you can get credits; and so much more...
How: All you need to do is to become a member of SWACCS and/or CRU, which is free of charge. Join here for SWACCS and here for CRU!
The minisymposium on the 26th will be live-streamed via zoom, and if you do not wish to come to the physical meeting you are most welcome to join via this link: https://uu-se.zoom.us/j/64661708861. However, please let us know if you have registered for the physical meeting but plan to join via zoom, so that we can plan the fika and lunch better
Credits: The workshop on scientific poster design (day 1 and poster session day 2) can be taken as a 0.5 ECTS PhD course.
Presentations: Three 15 min slots for oral presentations at the minisymposium on reproductive toxicology (day 2) are available for PhD students/postdocs. Selected speakers will get their whole travel and accommodation costs refunded by the EDC-2020 project. Abstracts can be submitted in the registration form.
Please note: As for now, the meeting is planned as a physical workshop. However, due to the covid-19 pandemic, it might be changed to a very similar program in digital format. More information about the format will be sent out by the end of June.
