The Euroleague for Life Sciences (ELLS) and SGGW invite all students from ELLS universities to join the ELLS Scientific Student Conference. Engage with other students and disseminate your research related to the headline „Green (r)evolution: from molecules to ecosystems”.
What is the ELLS Scientific Student Conference?
The ELLS Scientific Student Conference is a conference for students and young aspiring scientists to present their work, broaden their knowledge, and experience scientific conferences and discussions. During this conference, students will be the ones that present their work. The best presenters will be awarded prizes. Several additional side events and social activities that foster networking and exchange amongst students and researchers will refine the event.
Subthemes of the Scientific Student Conference:
Molecule- includes all the smallest perspectives of life on earth, but also some of the most important. Changing the world starts with the smallest particles, the very beginning of all life. This subtheme includes subjects like chemistry, nanotechnology, microbiology, virology, and genetics.
What is the target audience?
BSc, MSc and first-year Ph.D. students (at the time of submission of the abstract) of universities affiliated to the ELLS network.
How to participate?
Step 1: Submit your abstract – Abstract Submission from April to mid-June 2021. We invite you to submit your abstract before June 18, 2021 (23:59 CEST). The best abstracts will be chosen and those students will be allowed to present their research in an oral presentation or poster presentation, including a poster pitch.
Step 2: Abstract review. All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by a Scientific Committee (scientists from ELLS member Universities) in July 2021. Authors will be notified beginning of September whether their abstract has been accepted. Notification of the final assignment (oral presentation or poster presentation) will follow.
Step 3: Registration as presenter or audience member. After confirmation of your participation, you have to register for the conference via this website. Registration will open on September 1st. If you did not submit an abstract or if your abstract was rejected you may also participate as an audience member.
Organism- is an individual; a human being, an animal, a plant, or maybe a robot? The organism is built up of smaller parts and operates on its own or within a community. This subtheme includes biology, medicine and health, chemistry, economy, engineering, food science, biotechnology, how the environment impacts the individual being.
Community- is the interaction between organisms, meaning anything from the interaction between a parasite and its host to human societies to robot-human interaction. This subtheme includes engineering, social sciences, economy, entrepreneurship, natural resource management, food and consumption, urban and rural development, agriculture and land use, forestry, food security, medicine and health.
Ecosystem- are interactions on a large scale, how all things in the world are dependent on each other and how even the smallest change can have the biggest impact. This subtheme includes environmental sciences, innovations and entrepreneurship, biology, geography and social studies, rural and urban development, natural resource management, engineering, forestry and agriculture, food security, medicine and health and epidemiology.
Participation fee: free of charge.
Prize money: The best oral and poster presentations per subtheme will receive prize money.
Technical information: The conference will be held virtually. We are currently in the reorganization process. Further information will be published soon.
Guidelines for Oral/Poster Presentations
Guidelines for Oral Presentations. The oral sessions will take place over 3 different time slots, which will be further divided into 4 parallel sessions. Allocation of your presentation will be sent by email to all presenters at the beginning of September. The presentation and discussion will be held via the video/web conferencing platform MS Teams. Oral presenters who have been selected to do an oral presentation will hold a 15-minutes presentation (max.). This is followed by a 5-minute discussion round. Students selected for the oral presentation are required to prepare a PowerPoint presentation (.ppt).
Guidelines for Poster Presentations. The poster sessions will take place over 3 different time slots, which will be further divided into 4 parallel sessions. Allocation of your presentation will be sent by email to all presenters at the beginning of September. The presentation and discussion will be held via the video/web conferencing platform MS Teams. Poster presenters who have been selected to do a poster presentation will present a 3-minute pitch presentation (max). This is followed by a 5-minute discussion round. Additionally, the conference platform will feature a virtual poster exhibition where the posters will be showcased. Students selected for the poster presentation are required to prepare a poster (with min. resolution 1080 x 1920 px; aspect ratio 9:16 ).
Abstract Submission- OPEN till 18/06/2021
To present your work at the ELLS Scientific Student Conference “Green (r)evolution: from molecules to ecosystems” you will have to submit an abstract of your project. The conference is open for students from ELLS universities (Study program level BSc, MSc or first-year Ph.D.).
