Seed and Soil: Mechanisms of Metastasis

Berlin, Germany : 7 - 9 October 2019

Networking Opportunities

At the EACR, we know that conferences are about more than just hearing the latest research. Our events are well-known for providing excellent opportunities for networking, interaction and discussion. Here are a few of the features you can look forward to at Seed and Soil 2019.

Welcome Reception

Monday 07 October, 18:45-19:30

A complimentary buffet dinner will be served for all participants and exhibitors to enjoy on Monday evening. Speakers will be present giving all participants the opportunity to ask questions and make new connections. The trade exhibition will be open at this time, and Poster Discussion Session 1 will follow at 19.30.

Poster Discussion Sessions

Monday 07 October, 19:30-21:00
Tuesday 08 October, 14:15-15:45

There are two dedicated Poster Discussion Sessions in the programme. At these times, the presenters for that session are asked to stand by their posters to discuss their work with other participants and invited speakers. 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.


Tuesday 08 October, 17:00-18:00

Two invited speakers will take on a hot topic in an engaging and interactive debate. Once each speaker has put across their argument, questions will be invited 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.

Meet the Expert

Wednesday 09 October, 09:00-09:30

In this session, Professor Andreas Trumpp will share from his personal and professional perspectives on the path to scientific leadership. This session will take place in the lecture theatre, and will be a forum for open discussion where participants are encouraged to ask their questions.

Conference Dinner

Tuesday 08 October, 19:30 at Harnack House

The Conference Dinner 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. 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 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 selected as an optional extra for only €55.


“I enjoyed the combination of the stimulating scientific discussion and the intimate, relaxed feeling of the conference.”
