Protecting the Code: Epigenetic Impacts on Genome Stability

Berlin, Germany : 29 October - 1 November 2017

Networking Opportunities

It is important to the EACR that participants at events in the EACR Conference Series are able to discuss, share and create new connections and collaborations. This is a vital aspect of going to any scientific meeting, and we aim to create as many opportunities as possible to do this.

Speed Networking

Sunday 29 October 2017 at 18:15

The first evening will begin with this informal (and hopefully fun!) session, giving all participants the opportunity to make lots of new connections in a short space of time. Use the starter questions on the tall tables, and find a different table when you hear the bell ring.

Round Table Discussions

Monday 30 October 2017 at 16:15

This session provides the opportunity for participants to engage with invited speakers in small groups, to ask questions and converse informally. The bar will be open for the opportunity to purchase drinks.

Meet the Expert Session

Tuesday 31 October 2017 at 09:00

Professor Penny Jeggo has made important contributions to our understanding of DNA damage response and human radiosensitivity. Penny will discuss how science has changed during her career, the challenges that come with running a lab, and what it takes to be successful in science. There will be time for questions and discussion.

Conference Dinner

Tuesday 31 October 2017 at 19:30

The Conference Dinner will take place on the evening of Tuesday 31 October 2017, the final night of the conference. 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 Liebig Vault from 20.00. Due to the limited size of the restaurant, participant numbers have been restricted to 110. 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 selected as an optional extra for only €57

What do participants say?

"Small, intimate conference with loads of opportunities to network."

"We had an intense scientific discussion for every talk. Students and presenters were active and motivated."

"The topic is very interesting. The scientific quality was very high.  There was more time for discussion compared to other conferences."
