Invitation to all PhDs and Postdocs: Present your work at the SDG Conference 2023

Dear PhDs and postdoctoral researchers,

It is our pleasure to invite you to present your work at the upcoming SDG Conference 2023!

The sixth SDG Conference Bergen will take place 8-10 February 2023 with the theme “A just transformation to a sustainable future” (see SDG Conference Bergen | University of Bergen (uib.no) for details). This fully digital conference provides new opportunities to present emerging and important research by motivated PhD students and postdoctoral researchers addressing the conference themes. We therefore invite all PhDs and postdoctoral researchers that are interested to present a videorecorded poster on your research and how it relates to the theme of the upcoming conference.

The deadline for submitting a two-minute videorecorded poster is 31 January, 2023.

For more information on details on how to record your contribution and practical information regarding submitting, please see attached pdf flyer with information. Your poster videos will be showcased in the conference platform and available for all digital participants to view.

This is a great opportunity to share your research with a global audience and we hope to see your presentation at the conference!

Want to attend the conference? Register here!


From January 2023, the core facilities MIC, PROBE, FLOW and BiSS will change their booking system from IdeaElan to BooktitLab. BookitLab has been purchased centrally by UiB, which means that other core facilities at UiB also will have the opportunity to start using it in the future. BookitLab has already been implemented at both NTNU and UiO, as well as at the NMR-core facility at UiB (MatNat).

If you want to be able to reserve instruments or services from 1 January 2023, users must by December log into BookitLab (Feide login) once, and thereafter have a project linked to their name.

Separate e-mails with relevant information on how to get started will be sent to project leaders (PIs), project accountants and existing users of the core facilities. The procedures are simple, and it is important that everyone follows the instructions so that the transition becomes as smooth as possible. If you have not received the relevant information yet, you can contact mic@uib.no.
