Registration process

How to register?

Registration will be announced here.

Does every participant have to present a poster or short talk?


Is it possible only to give a pub talk and not present a poster/short talk?

No. We encourage everybody to present a poster.

What is the deadline for the submission of abstracts for short talks and pub talks?

If you want to apply for a travel grant you must submit your abstract (for short talk and also for pub talk if you are planning to apply for it) by March 25th. If you submit it later than that we won’t be able to consider your application for the respective talks. The abstracts need to be submitted through the appropriate section of the registration procedure.

I have been selected for a short talk, can I also present a poster?

Yes, selected short talk speakers can but do not have to present a poster.

What if I am a first-year Ph.D. student and I do not have data to present?

We strongly encourage you to present a poster about your general project idea even if it is only background information and experimental plans.

Career day

Can I attend more than one workshop?

Maybe. On the one hand, we want to prevent overloading the workshops, on the other hand, we want to allow a maximum of people to take advantage of them. Depending on the final capacity of each workshop, we might be able to admit more people. More information will be shared with you during the symposium. Also, keep in mind that career chats and the job fair will be running in parallel.

Who can participate in the Opportunity Fair?

All ENABLE attendees that wish to attend.


Where does the symposium take place?

The ENABLE Symposium will be held online.
