Welcome to a special and extended CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium at Panorama Hotel & Resort at Sotra, just outside Bergen. This time we will host a lunch-to-lunch symposium from Monday 19th- Tuesday 20th of November. The CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium is a forum to practice presenting projects, engaging in scientific discussions and interact with like-minded peers. In addition, to enjoy excellent and interesting scientific presentations.

The symposium will start with a delicious lunch, before proceeding with an excellent academic and scientific program, including an inspirational lecture by the experienced scientist, professor and vice dean of doctoral education at our faculty, Roland Jonsson.  We will focus on how to improve scientific presentation skills, both through illustrations and orally, in the workshop; "How to make great figures and present your work in 3 minutes". Here you will get an overview of "do's" and "don'ts" from the experts. We will also be inspired by previous organizers of CCBIO JUSS who will give us ideas on the different aspects of life in academia. 

Day two will bring research insights and inspiration from Professor Stein Ove Døskeland and his 45 years of research, and Researcher Nils Halberg, representing a young investigator leading an established research lab.

As always, there will be exciting scientific presentations from CCBIO junior scientists, both days, and if you have work that you would like to present, you may nominate yourself upon registration.

The modest participation fee for this symposium (500 NOK per person in double room, 1000 NOK in single room, ask your group leader for support) includes lunch both days, dinner and hotel stay in double or single occupancy, in addition to the organized bus transportation between Haukeland Campus and the Panorama Hotel & Resort at Sotra. Access to facilities are included.

For those registered for CCBIO901, attending this symposium will count as two regular symposia.

Hope to see you there, for great presentations and a great time!

Open to all

The symposia are held four times annually, and this is an arena where PhD candidates and postdocs gain experience with oral presentations and academic discussions, but is also open to other interested students, researchers, staff and visitors. The meetings have proved to be an excellent place for young researchers to get input for potential collaborations in ongoing and future projects.
