4th Uppsala Transposon Symposium during Covid-19

The previous and upcoming months have been and will be quite unpredictable. We have good news though: The 4th Uppsala Transposon Symposium will take place as planned on September 30 – October 02.

Note that we will provide a livestream of the meeting for registered users who can’t make it to the meeting in person, and are prepared to organize the meeting entirely on a virtual basis. All this depends on the development of the Covid-19 situation over the summer.

Please stay safe everyone!

Save the date: 4th Uppsala Transposon Symposium

We are excited to announce another edition of the Uppsala Transposon Symposium series:

4th Uppsala Transposon Symposium integrating transposon and virus identification into evolution and disease research, September 30 – October 02, 2020.

Please save the date!

Practicalities and deadlines:

  • Thanks to conference support by SciLifeLab and Vetenskapsrådet, registration will be free as in previous years to allow scientists from all career stages to attend.
  • Registration will open in late May with the chance to submit an abstract for a talk, lightning talk, or poster until end of August.
  • Days 1 and 2 (symposium) will provide an interdisciplinary road map to overcome TE and EV knowledge gaps in evolution and disease research.
  • Day 3 (workshop) will provide cutting-edge training and problem-solving sessions for meeting participants.
