Science for Life Online Conference:

Monday November 16 | 12.30 - 17.30

Dear fellow Life Scientist,
Got any plans for November 16th? The Science for Life online Conference is definitely one you’ll want to clear your schedules for. And you’re invited!
Science is a shared joy. This year we feel the need to share more keenly than ever. That is why the online conference is more than just another online event: it is a moment to inspire and be inspired by the great variety of life science research. Visit some amazing keynotes or join the discussion in one of many break-out sessions. Present your own research at the virtual poster session or take part in an online workshop. Interact, socialize and experience the life sciences community!
Among the keynotes already confirmed for the conference are some brilliant speakers that love sharing their passion for fundamental life sciences research. Please join
- Anna Akhmanova, professor of Biodynamics and Biocomplexity

Interactive Sessions
Whether you present your own poster or join a discussion, we encourage you to interact at the conference. Here are some of your options:

- Join a discussion on COVID-19 research with prominent researchers, including Prof. Marc Bonten, member of the Dutch ‘Outbreak Management Team’ and Prof. Lukas Kapitein, fundamental life science researcher. 
- Choose between a host of breakout sessions with inspiring researchers showcasing Science for Life Highlights, Emerging technologies and celebrating 50 years of Bioinformatics research.

- Join small discussion groups or present your own research at the virtual poster sessions. Everyone has a chance to discuss their research. Do you have a poster or another type of research presentation that you would like to share or discuss? Submit a title for your session in the application form and we’ll contact you for the specifics!

- Join the debate in the ‘Incredible Science’ workshop about scientific integrity, fake news and the credibility of science.
Join the virtual conference
This year's conference is an online event. Although it will be a different experience from the immersive real-life experience of the physical conference, we encourage you to immerse yourself in the science and the social aspects nonetheless. The event is a self-seating event, this means you can create your own schedule and claim your seats online. Registered participants will receive a self-seating invite once the programme is finalised. We hope to meet you on November 16!
