Young Diatomists Meeting Download First Announcement
Dear young diatom scientists,
In this first announcement, we would like to provide you some information about the planned YOUNG ISDR activities during the upcoming 25th International Diatom Symposium held in Berlin, Germany from 25th–30th June 2018.
Quick reminder of important deadlines:
Abstract submission ends at the 1st April 2018 and
Early Bird registration on the 1st March 2018 – do not miss these dates!
Funding: The ISDR provides funding to allow 10 young and early career
researchers dealing with diatom studies to attend the 25th IDS 2018 in Berlin.
To apply for an award: deadline 1st February is extended to 15th February for application for ISDR Student Travel Awards
Aim of meeting up in Berlin: We think it is important that the young generation of diatom scientists is meeting up to get to know each other better. Think about, that the people you might meet here are your collaborative research colleagues for the next couple of years. Research ideas and experiences can be exchanged during an informal get-together.
What is planned: During the meeting in Québec in 2016, we got some feedback, what you would like to have included in the next meeting and we hope we considered your suggestions well!
