The „Microsymposium on Small RNAs“ is a three day international conference that brings together young scientists, junior and senior group leaders, and company representatives from all over the world to present and discuss their latest findings in the exciting field of small RNAs and general RNA biology. The Microsymposium was founded in 2005 and has established itself as the major RNA silencing meeting in Europe. It is organized by the four research institutes IMBA, IMP, GMI and MFPL and the RNA community of the Vienna BioCenter.
The program will include lectures by the invited speakers Amy Buck, Richard Davis, Eric Lai, Wenbo Ma, Sebastian Marquardt, Christine Mayr, Kazufumi Mochizuki, Mariusz Nowacki, Ramesh Pillai, Yue Wan, Mihaela Zavolan, Zhao Zhang, and Xiuren Zhang.
We invite submission of abstracts for poster presentations (deadline June 4th, 2018).
A highlight of the meeting is always the PhD speaker sessions. PhD students can apply for oral presentations (deadline May 4th, 2018). Selected candidates will be awarded a fellowship with reimbursement of traveling and accommodation costs.
Attendance of the Microsymposium is free of charge. Please register under http://www.imba.oeaw.ac.at/microsymposium.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Vienna!
