Call for Symposia

Deadline to send proposals: 2018 October 19th

nanoGe Fall Meeting (#NFM) is a yearly event organized by Fundació Scito, composed of multiple scientific symposia. Fundació Scito is a non-profit organization with the capacity to organize and manage conferences. nanoGe is the conference trade mark of Fundació Scito.

Here we invite the scientific community to present proposals for NFM20 a multisymposia event that will be celebrated between 19 and 23 of October 2020 in Barcelona, Spain. The venue will be the Barcelona World Trade Conference Center.

For organizational reasons, Fundació Scito has established common rules for all the symposia. Please read these instructions carefully for preparing your proposal.

The symposia are conceived to form an exciting, interdisciplinary event that attracts key players of the respective fields as organizers, invited speakers and participants. As always, nanoGe very much takes diversity into account when putting conferences together: from gender to geographical diversity and senior researchers vs. young-and-upcoming ones that will raise fresh ideas to their field.

If you want to propose a symposium that was already celebrated in the past, please contact us in advance at fallmeeting20@nanoge.org. You can check previous symposia here.
