A Matter of Life or Death: From Basic Cell Death Mechanisms to Novel Cancer Treatments

Amsterdam, Netherlands : 1 - 3 February 2018

Networking Opportunities

Space has been included in the programme to enable plenty of time for the important discussions that occur outside of the lecture theatre. We have also arranged some dedicated networking opportunities which are detailed below.

On this page:

Networking Reception

Thursday 01 February 17.45 - 19.00

A hot buffet dinner will be served prior to the evening Keynote Lecture, and this will be an ideal opportunity for participants to get to know each other and enjoy the unique venue of De Rode Hoed. De Rode Hoed’s Great Hall is the largest and oldest remaining hidden church in the Netherlands.

Round Table Discussions

Friday 02 February 16.30 - 17.30

This session enables participants and speakers to converse informally in smaller groups. Participants are free to ask any questions they like and to move freely between different speakers. 

It will be followed later in the evening by the Conference Dinner (see below).
