Life Science Tuesday
6 Oct 20 – Mar 21
Following the Kick off event, our virtual meeting room will feature 12 online “Life Science Tuesdays”, held bi-weekly from October 2020 – March 2021.
On Life Science Tuesdays we will gather in our virtual meeting room from approx. from 13:00 – 18:00, to immerse into a specific scientific topic, making it interesting not only for “insiders”, but also for those who want to update their knowledge on a specific subject.
Life Science Tuesdays will offer live presentations and ample space for live interaction between Chairs, speakers and participants.
We will offer “coffee breaks” in which participants can visit the VirtualExpo, take part in the Exhibitors Quiz, meet speakers, meet other participants etc.
Two Chairs, renowned specialists in the subject, will be the hosts and guide through the afternoon.
The topic will be introduced by an invited speaker via live presentation, followed by Q&A. Those who would like to “meet the speaker” can do so following the presentation in a virtual breakout room, limited to a small group upon first come, first serve basis.
The best abstracts submitted for the subject will then be presented live as “Short Talks” with subsequent Q&A.
What was formerly a poster, is now a “Science Flash”. As attendee you will have the possibility to review the 5 minute pre-recorded video presentation online via the ÖGMBT-webpage one week before the specific Life Science Tuesday. At the very Tuesday, there will be a “Science Flash” session, where you will be able to interact live in a breakout room with the authors of the videos, discuss and ask questions.
The afternoon will be topped by workshops or webinars on different topics. A list and description will be published here below.
INTERACTIVITY in our virtual meeting room is of utmost importance for us. With Zoom we have a tool where we can have all participants in a plenary room and can create ample breakouts to mix/meet/discuss. And we are very flexible – if, in the course of a topic – a group needs a breakout room for further discussion, we can facilitate that ad-hoc.
