What is the ELLS Scientific Student Conference?

The ELLS Scientific Student Conference 2022 will take place on the 23rd and 24th of September.

Every year, the Euroleague for Life Sciences invites students from ELLS and ELLS-partner universities to participate in the Scientific Student Conference (SSC). This year's main theme is The Interconnectedness of Things: A Path Towards Sustainable Solutions. The two-day frame of the SSC is an excellent opportunity for students to feel the flair of a scientific conference and get to know many different people - students and teachers - from various fields and universities. Students can either present their scientific work in the form of a poster session or an oral session. Within the poster sessions, students will present their work as a poster. In the oral session, students will give a presentation and answer questions about their research. Students will get constructive feedback on their presentation and work from peers and experts and might even win a prize.

What are the Subthemes of the Scientific Student Conference 2022?

 

 

Abstract submission

The deadline for abstract submission has passed. Thank you for your abstracts! You have received the result by email.

Abstracts were evaluated by experts in the field based on the relevance to the conference theme and the chosen subtheme and based on their quality. Every effort is now being made to include all submitted abstracts in the conference programme, but we may not be able to honour all if we receive too many submissions.

 

Who will present their abstract and how will it happen?

Step 1: Pre-Register and Submit your abstract – Abstract Submission from April to the end of May 2022. We invite you to submit your abstract before May 31, 2022 (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 the submitted abstracts will be reviewed by a Scientific Committee (scientists from the ELLS member universities) in June 2022. Authors will be notified at the end of June whether their abstract has been accepted. Notification of the final assignment (oral presentation or poster presentation) will follow.

Step 3: Confirm your attendance as a speaker by the end of July. You will be addressed by the conference team in July to confirm your attendance either as a speaker (oral or poster presenter) or visitor and register your time of arrival, accommodation preference and food diet. The deadline to confirm your role as a speaker is by the end of July. If you did not submit an abstract or if your abstract was rejected you may also participate as an audience member. You will be able to register until September 7.

Step 4: Register for the conference. Follow this link to register either as a speaker (by 31.7.) or visitor (7.9.) and indicate your accommodation preference and food diet: https://forms.office.com/r/6SWd7HqgRk 

Step 5: Follow the instructions for Oral or Poster presentations: 

Guidelines for Oral presentations: Please prepare a 10-minute PowerPoint presentation (.pptx) and be ready for a follow-up 5-minute question round. The deadline to submit your presentation will be the 7th of September. You will receive instructions on how to submit the presentation in August. The Oral Sessions will take place in lecture or seminar rooms of the Faculty of Environmental Sciences on the CZU campus. There will be four oral presentations per session. You will have a chance to compete for a financial prize with the other oral presenters in your subtheme. The ELLS Scientific Students Conference will have several parallel Oral, Poster and Campfire sessions. Your oral presentation will be scheduled under one of the 1-hour slots for oral sessions of the subtheme you chose. The specific time will be allocated in August, but you can see the preliminary session schedule below.

Guidelines for Posters: Please prepare, print and bring with you a presentation of your scientific work on an A1 format poster (594 × 841 mm). A poster requires a combination of text and graphics based on your specific topic and the presented scientific work. The deadline to submit an online version of your poster in a PDF file will be the 7th of September. You will receive instructions on how to submit the PDF poster in August. You will be able to hang your printed poster on designated areas for your poster session upon arriving for registration at CZU Prague. The posters will be grouped by the various subthemes and will be hanging as a gallery during the whole time of the conference. Conference participants will browse through the poster gallery and study the information on the posters.
The Poster Sessions will take place in hallways on different floors of the Faculty of Environmental Sciences on the CZU campus. During the 50-minute poster session, you will have a 5-minute poster pitch of your work and about 3 minutes for a follow-up question round. There will be six poster presentations per session. You have a chance to compete for a financial prize with the other poster presenters in your subtheme. Your poster presentation will be scheduled under one of the 50-minute slots for poster sessions of the subtheme you chose. The specific time will be allocated in August, but you can see the preliminary session schedule here:

SSC 2022 Preliminary Session Schedule - for students.pdf

The ELLS Scientific Students Conference will have several parallel Oral, Poster and newly also Campfire sessions. 

Campfire sessions are designed to create a relaxed environment and to stimulate storytelling over a 50-minute session focused on one of the subthemes. Each SSC subtheme (11) will have a campfire session that will be facilitated by the Subtheme chair (an expert in the field of study) and an experienced PhD student in the field. Both the chair and the PhD student will share their story and experience with becoming a researcher in that particular area. Students will have a chance to pose questions, discuss the topic openly and network with other future researchers in the same field of study.
