Goodbye Flat Biology: In Vivo Inspired Cancer Biology and Therapy

Berlin, Germany : 9 - 12 September 2018

Networking Opportunities

We know that scientists want opportunities to engage and interact beyond the lectures, so EACR conferences always feature a variety of dedicated sessions for this.

On this page:

Icebreaker Introductions

Sunday 9 September at 18:15

Following the opening keynote lecture, this session will enable participants to make some new connections and meet those with similar research interests. Drinks will be served, making it an informal networking opportunity that is open to all participants. From 19:00, conversations can continue during the Welcome Buffet, and the trade exhibition will also open at this time.

Poster Discussion Sessions

Monday 10 September, 13:00-14:30
Tuesday 11 September, 13:15-14:45

Lively Poster Discussion Sessions are a fixture at Goodbye Flat Biology. As well as the dedicated sessions on Monday and Tuesday, there will also be additional poster viewing opportunities at the beginning of each day where posters can be freely browsed.

Meet the Expert Session

Tuesday 11 September at 09:00

Prof. Margaret Frame will share her perspective of a career in science, touching on various challenges and key decisions she has experienced as a researcher. There will be a chance to ask your questions, and it promises to be a highlight of the meeting.

Conference Debate

Tuesday 11 September at 16:45

Two invited speakers will discuss the topic "Smart 3D culture will replace animal experiments" in an engaging and interactive debate. Once each speaker has put across their argument, there will be an opportunity for questions from the audience. All participants will be asked to vote both before and after the debate, to see whether the discussion has changed anyone’s viewpoint.

Conference Dinner

Tuesday 11 September at 19:30

The Conference Dinner will take place on the final night of the meeting. It will be an excellent opportunity for participants and speakers to get to know each other in a relaxed and informal environment. The evening will begin with a Drinks Reception in the Planck Lobby of Harnack House at 19:30, featuring live music. The three-course served dinner will take place downstairs in the atmospheric restaurant from 20:00. Due to the limited size of the restaurant, participant numbers have been restricted to 100. The evening is expected to be a sell out, so make sure that you buy your ticket when registering!

Tickets for the conference dinner are not included in the registration fee and can be purchased as an optional extra for €55.

“The organisation and the programme were really great. The Speed Networking and Round Table Discussions with famous and greatest scientists were the strongest parts of the conference for me.”
