Members, PhD- and MSc-students are very welcome to submit an abstract about their research. All abstracts are accepted for a poster presentation. 

Both PhD- and MSc-students can apply for a speed presentation during the ‘Young scientist’ day, 21st of June. However, due to the limited space in the program, only a selection of abstracts will be assigned with a presentation.

For the 4th year/senior PhD-students, it is possible to apply for a platform presentation on the  Member day 20th of June. Here as well, a selection will be performed after submission of the abstracts.
