Final program published!
Dear Worm Friends and Colleagues,
We cordially invite you to the 2016 European Worm Meeting (EWM) taking place June 1 – 3 in Berlin (Germany) at the Max Delbrück Center (MDC). Worldwide all scientists are welcome to attend the 2016 EWM in Berlin!
A key feature of the 2016 EWM is to avoid parallel sessions such that participants working on different research topics are exposed to the work of other worm groups. This concept was overwhelmingly appreciated by almost all participants of our 2014 worm meeting in Berlin and therefore has been maintained for the 2016 EWM.
We are looking forward to a diverse scientific meeting with many opportunities for networking with international worm researchers.
The EWM 2016 is an initiative of the ‘Group of Elegans New Investigators in Europe’ (GENiE, http://worm-genie.eu/) sponsored by EMBO and COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology supported by the EU) BM1408.
The Keynote will be given by:
Susan Gasser (FMI Basel, CH)
Nektarios Tavernarakis (University of Crete, GR)
Ralf Sommer (MPI Tübingen, DE)
Jean-Louis Bessereau (Lyon Univ., FR)
Peter Askjaer (Andalusian Centre for Developmental Biology, ES)
Ehud Cohen (Hebrew University Jerusalem, IL)
Maria Doitsidou (University of Edinburgh, UK)
Nate Goehring (Francis Crick Institute, UK)
Alexander Gottschalk (Frankfurt University, DE)
Sophie Jarriault (IGBMC Strasbourg, FR)
Peter Meister (University of Bern, CH)
Patricija van Oosten-Hawle (University of Leeds, UK)
Benjamin Podbilewicz (Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, IL)
Richard Poole (University College London, UK)
Christian Riedel (Karolinska Institutet ICMC, SE)
Ana Joao Rodrigues (Life and Health Sciences Research Institute ICVS, PT)
We will have 49 talks selected based on the submitted abstracts for oral presentation. Poster abstract submissions are welcome since we will have time for two poster sessions.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin!
