Symposia at Europhysiology 2020 are to consist of one or two organiser (who will also act as the Chair) and therefore not be included as a speaker, two senior leaders in the field (each allocated 30 minutes) and two early-career individuals (each allocated 15 minutes) totalling 1.5 hours. Early-career should be PhD, Postdoc or first faculty position level (non-professorial).
We welcome, and encourage, submissions from all countries, not just from colleagues working in Europe.
Each symposium will have the following format:
The organiser may select the early-career speakers from the submitted abstracts in June 2020.
There will be 18 symposia in total across the three days.
Each symposium can be funded to a maximum of €2,000 Euro to cover travel, accommodation and registration of speakers who are not members of any of the hosting societies (FEPS, TPS, SPS, DPG). It is the expectation of the Scientific Programme Committee that organisers find funding from additional sources. This support will be acknowledged online and in the printed programme.
All speakers are required to submit an abstract.
When submitting your proposal, please bear in mind the importance of ensuring gender, geographic and career-stage balance.
The Societies are committed to increasing equality and diversity in the physiological sciences, and we would like to ask you to be mindful of this commitment when making your suggestions for scientific content.
