BioSB PhD retreat 2017
YoungCB (ISCB Regional Student Group Netherlands) is pleased to invite you to the BioSB PhD retreat 2017 in the afternoon of April 3rd. The retreat will be held in Lunteren at the Congrescentrum De Werelt, preceding the BioSB conference. The retreat is sponsored by the BioSB research school.
We encourage all (PhD-) students and young researchers in the fields of computational biology, bioinformatics, systems biology and related fields to attend this annual retreat to discuss your research and build a network with fellow young peers in the Netherlands. The retreat provides you with the opportunity to present your research to fellow students and young professionals. This informal and casual session will consist of a series of selected flash talks, including questions.
In the evening there will be a dinner in the centre of Lunteren, followed by a fun social event at the conference centre bar. The evening program provides you the opportunity to network with fellow (PhD-) students and young researchers.
