The Board of Directors will gather all the Directors of the institutes from the Institut Pasteur International Network on November 8-9, 2011 at Institut Pasteur in Paris. On this occasion, a full day will be dedicated to a scientific meeting of young researchers (Master 2, PhD, junior researchers) working in Paris and in the Institut Pasteur International Network on November 10, 2011.
The objective is to encourage the scientific exchange and to create strong links between the researchers from the campus in Paris and the researchers from the Institut Pasteur International Network focusing on infectious diseases and public health.
On behalf of the Scientific Committee and of the Institut Pasteur International Network, we invite the submission of abstracts that report new scientific research developments in bacteriology, parasitology, virology, epidemiology/clinical research in all areas of infectious diseases and public health.
The Scientific Committee will select oral presentations (10 min. presentation plus 5 min. discussion) and commented posters (very short presentations: 2-3 slides in 2-3 minutes). For the young researchers whose summaries will be selected, the journey and all expenses will be covered by the International Division of Institut Pasteur. Two “Institut Pasteur International Network Young Scientist Awards” will be attributed to young scientists for the best presentations. One award will give the awarded scientist working in Paris the opportunity to visit (travel and stay) the laboratory of his/her choice within the network. Another award will give the awarded scientist working within the international network the opportunity to visit the campus in Paris.
Please visit the following new website dedicated to the Meeting for further details, download the abstract form and submit a summary in English (Police: Times New Roman 12, one page maximum).
Call for Abstracts – DEADLINE: JULY 10, 2011
