e:Med Kick-off Meeting 2020
...goes virtual November 24-25, 2020
Please find the online program here.
The workshop on Detecting aberrant expression in RNA-seq will take place November 26, 2020 online (one day after the meeting).
We are happy to announce the virtual e:Med Kick-off meeting 2020, taking place November 24-25, 2020 online. Please mark your calendar, check for a stable internet connection, a working headset, get cozy in your chair and travel to the e:Med Kick-off meeting in no time. Although it cannot fully replace meeting everyone in person, we are glad to hear about the latest scientific results and provide you a virtual platform for discussion and networking. We invite you to register again for this virtual event.
The scientific program remains largely as planned for March. Thus, the selected talks and posters will also be presented in the virtual meeting. As much time has passed since your abstract submission, you have the opportunity to update your scientific abstract or moreover to submit new abstracts as late breaking news (posters only).
Since organizing a virtual meeting is also new to us, please allow us some time to figure out last details. Further and always updated information can be found on this website.
We look forward to meeting you online!
The e:Med Management Office
Original message from March, 3rd 2020:
The meeting is POSTPONED!
With great regret we unfortunately have to postpone the e:Med Kick-off Meeting 2020 to later this year due to the COVID-19 infection risk in Germany (www.rki.de).
This has just been decided by the e:Med project committee in a specially called conference call.
The reasons are:
Among the participants were many medical professionals who would be immediately quarantined in the event of a single person who subsequently tested positive, including their further contacts immediately after the meeting. This could cause major problems for the functionality of medical facilities all over Germany.
Moreover, herewith an attempt is made to keep the rate of infection spreading in the population as low as possible.
We very much regret not to be able to offer you the chance of direct networking in the systems medicine community until later. We will contact you as soon as a new time is known and look forward to meeting you then.
