Welcome message

YSF logoIt is our great honour to invite you to participate in the 16th FEBS Young Scientists’ Forum (YSF), which will be held in Kuşadası, Turkey, from 31st August to 3rd September 2016.

The YSF, a satellite meeting of the FEBS Congress, takes place prior to the main event and is organized by young scientists for young scientists. More than 100 outstanding young researchers from the FEBS area will be selected to take part in the 16th YSF, where they will have the opportunity to network with their colleagues and to present their work either as short oral presentations (selected from abstracts), or as posters after delivering a one-minute presentation of the main content of their work. In addition, there will be exciting keynote lectures given by four distinguished researchers — Prof. Dr Naama Barkai (Rehovot, Israel), Prof. Dr Martin Bergö (Gothenburg, Sweden), Assoc. Prof. Dr Felipe Cortés Ledesma (Sevilla, Spain) and Assoc. Prof. Dr Güneş Özhan (İzmir, Turkey) — and a round-table discussion on issues related to the development of a scientific career. The scientific sessions will be complemented by attractive social events. More details can be found on the YSF Programme page.

FEBS provides financial support to the selected participants via YSF grants that cover registration and accommodation for both the YSF and FEBS Congress, and the majority of the travel expenses. Further details on FEBS support, as well as the eligibility criteria and instructions on how to apply, are given here.

The 16th YSF will be held at the KoruMar De Luxe Hotel where participants will stay during the YSF and the FEBS Congress. The hotel is located in Kuşadası and is very close to Kuşadası Ephesus Convention Center where the 41st FEBS Congress will be held.

The 16th YSF Organizing Committee is very happy to invite young molecular life scientists from across the FEBS area to join us for this great opportunity to create friendships, co-operation and interchange among PhD students and postdocs.
