The goal of the BSRT Symposium is to give all participating junior scientists the opportunity to present their own work, exchange ideas and make contact with their peers and senior experts. We therefore warmly invite you to submit your abstract and apply for an oral or poster presentation. An oral presentation will offer you a great chance to show your data to an audience in a relaxed atmosphere amongst peers. We would like you to include in your abstract also negative results and failures that you experienced in your scientific work and, most importantly, do not forget to describe the lessons you learned from this experience! The organization team will select the oral presentations based on scientific quality and references to the art of failure reported in the abstracts. Also a poster presentation will give you a great opportunity to network and exchange ideas, as well as to discuss aspects of failure and negative outcomes you encountered. We highly encourage you to present your work or your project proposal with a poster even if you just have preliminary data or exciting new ideas.

To give a poster or oral presentation you need to submit the completed abstract form. You can do this after registration to the BSRT Symposium at any time but no later than 15.09.2018.
