Bright Sparks submission criteria
We are pleased to announce to continue our tradition regarding the Bright Sparks plenary session. The aim of this session is to put our young bright talents in the spotlight. PhD students or junior postdoctoral fellows who have completed a cutting edge research project are most welcome to put forward their candidacy. From the list of all candidates, 4 are nominated to give an oral presentation in the auditorium before an audience of peers, after which a designated committee will select the next 'Bright Spark in Immunology', who is entitled to a prize of €500.
Please read the following submission criteria carefully, before submitting your abstract for the ‘Bright Sparks’:
In case you are selected for participation in the ‘Bright Sparks’ event, the same abstract will not be selected for oral presentation in another session during the congress. However, in case you are not selected you remain eligible for an oral presentation in the regular parallel sessions.
