Student talks and posters

We invite master students, PhD students and post-docs to present their research project during the annual meeting. This is a great opportunity to get feedback from fellow students and group leaders within bioinformatics, biostatistics and systems biology. The talks will be of a duration of 12 minutes with additional 3 minutes time for questions and discussion. We will arrange a feedback comittee for each session. As we have a limited number of sessions available for student talks during the meeting, we will select 10-12 of them and expect that the rest will bring a poster instead. We will have two poster sessions, on the 14th and the 15th, with a prize for the best poster.



NORBIS will cover travel and accommodation expenses for students participating with a talk or a poster at this year’s annual conference. Post-docs can apply to have their expenses covered, provided they present a talk or a poster as well. We have a limited number of rooms available, and we therefore encourage you to agree on sharing a room with a fellow student.



You may register here by August 19. Please note that registration is binding and that cancellations after the deadline may be charged 2600 NOK.

Please email for late registration!
