The 5th Scientific Meeting of PhD Students at UAB campus (JPhD2020), organized by PhD fellows of the ICMAB, IMB-CNM, ICN2 and the UAB, will be held at the UAB and IMB-CNM premises during September 17-18, 2020.

This scientific meeting of PhD students is mainly addressed to PhD students of any year, who are interested in sharing their research and connecting with other research groups. Master's and undergraduate students are welcome to participate as well. You can send your abstracts before 31 July 2020.

The JPhD2020 includes lectures from international and local professionals, presentations from fellow PhD students, a poster session and interesting hands-on tutorial workshops. The conference is a great opportunity to practice communication skills, discover different research fields, and connect with PhD students across the UAB campus.

Registration is open from now on and they accept applications until July 31, 2020. Two-person presentations are also welcome in the case that two PhD students work in close collaboration with each other. Please follow the instructions on the website to submit your application.

Selected candidates will be notified by email before August 21, 2020. You may contact the organisers at jphd2020@icmab.es for further information. They have also a Twitter (@JPhD2020) and an Instagram account (@jphd_2020) that you can follow to keep up with the news. All the information regarding the speakers of the event and the different workshops will be available on the conference’s JPhD2020 website.
