Travel, best oral and best poster awards are given at the Working Group Annual Meeting.
This official meeting of the ESC Working Group on Development, Anatomy & Pathology.
The meeting organisers are Dr. Stephane Zaffran and Prof. Robert Kelly, University of Aix-Marseille, France.
The 2018 meeting of the Working Group on Development, Anatomy and Pathology will be held in Palais du Pharo of Marseille, France.
The Working Group will award the Pexieder prize for the best oral presentation during the meeting.
This award had been named in tribute to Tomas Pexieder, founder and first Co-Chairman of the Working Group on Development Anatomy and Pathology, formerly named "Embryology and Teratology".
All submitted abstracts will be automatically entered for these prizes.
The Meeting will award traveling expenses up to four PhD-students and/or Junior Post-Docs (within 3 years after their PhD).
Applicant must be registered member of the Working Group (if not a member yet, you can still join for free now) and submit an abstract online (see above), indicating that they wish to apply for a travel grant.
Reimbursement is processed after the meeting and awardees may claim travel expenses via the ESC website with a maximum cash prize of 400 Euro. In the case of a no-show or lack of data presented at the meeting, the travel expense claim will not be processed. Also, in case travel awardees are also awarded for poster presentation, they will only receive the award certificate without any financial prize.
