Symposium of the Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center
Venue: ETH Zurich, Auditorium Maximum HG F30, Rämistr 101, Zurich and online
The symposium will highlight advances in plant science research from micro- to macro-scale by touching the art of data science.
It aims to answer key questions such as: How to find patterns in data? How to find patterns in nature? And what do they reveal?
This is a hybrid event.
Only Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center researchers (Master students, PhDs, postdocs, PIs, and staff) are admitted to participate in person on the ETH Zurich premises. Participants will have to present a valid Covid-certificate and personal ID to be admitted to the Auditorium Maximum. Wearing a mask is required in indoor spaces. Poster presenters are requested to participate in person.
Online participation is the alternative option, especially for non-PSC members.
PSC will adhere to ETH Zurich pandemic regulations. Thus, changes are possible.
Flash talks by early scientists
The Scientific Committee will select 4 poster abstracts among the submissions received. Four young scientists will get the opportunity to give a 10-minute plenary presentation (reserved for PSC network members). Selected poster authors will be contacted after the abstract submission deadline.
Please MARK the box in the registration form, if you would accept an invitation for a FLASH TALK.
