INVITATION: 11th CCBIO Annual Symposium at Hotel Solstrand & Online, May 8-10, 2023

Dear all,

A kind reminder of the invitation to the 11th CCBIO Annual Symposium May 8-10 at Hotel Solstrand close to Bergen – this is booking well, so if you have not registered yet, make sure to do that now while we still can accommodate you at the lovely Solstrand hotel. Deadline is March 31. The symposium is open for all, so please feel free to circulate this invitation.

The 2022 symposium was a success with more than 240 participants, and we expect the enlarged 2023 symposium to be even better with its generous time frame and two overnight stays. You can choose between attending online for scientific updates, or in-person at Hotel Solstrand in order to also enjoy the company of colleagues and the informal and mutually fertilizing scientific crosstalk in the breaks and the evenings.  We expect the symposium to become fully subscribed, and we strongly recommend you to register early and within the deadline of March 31.

We have secured a range of international speakers: Alexander Swabrick, Amy Leblanc, Anniina Färkkilä, Benno Schwikowski, Douglas Lauffenburger, Frederic Amant, Iain McNeish, Ian Mills, Ingrid Hedenfalk, Klaus Pantel, Michael Rogers, Caroline Heckman, Rameen Beroukhim, Robert D’Amato, Stephane Terry, Catherine Panabieres and Jean Paul Thiery. See prefinal program here.

Younger researchers are offered slots for 3-minute speed-talks as well as extended poster sessions with ample time for interaction between the participants. There is still time to register for speed talks and/or poster.

The heavily subsidized registration fee is 3000 NOK/300 Euro per person for the three days and two overnight stays with full board. In order to enable us to accommodate 200+ participants in the 138 rooms available, we are dependent upon as many as possible sharing rooms (up to four).  So, please indicate if, and with whom, you are willing to share your room when you register online.
