9:00-12:00 Registration
Elevator Pitch session
Elevator pitch activity

Are you planning to submit a publication?
Would you like to join a new group as a post-doc?

You could be asking all those questions if you are a fourth-year grad student or an early postdoc. In this practical session, you will learnt new tricks to tackle these problems from experienced scientists and journal editors. If you are interested in this activity, please do not forget to say so during your registration (this activity is restricted to grad students and post docs who have submitted an abstract to the Symposium). Try it! It is going to be useful to learn how to sell your data! And it is going to be fun as well!

The registration to this activity is FREE of charge.
9:00-12:00h: Javier Carmona (former editor of Nat Medicine; currently at VHIO), Esther Castellano and David Santamaria (PIs of CIC-CSIC)
