The Microsymposium 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. The Microsymposium was founded in 2005 and has established itself as the major small RNA meeting in Europe. It is organized by the three research institutions IMBA, IMP, and GMI, as well as by the RNA community of the Vienna Biocenter.

The conference includes a PhD Student Workshop. From the submitted abstracts, 8-10 students will be selected as speakers. Travel and accommodation for these students will be covered.

The Microsymposium is entirely financed by scientific societies, leading journals, biotech companies, the city of Vienna, and the research institutions IMBA, IMP, and GMI. These generous contributions make the Microsymposium a registration-free meeting for all its participants.

This year, the Microsymposium will take place just a few days before the RNA Society Meeting in Prague, which will begin on May 30th, to facilitate traveling for people who plan to attend both.
