6th Uppsala Transposon Symposium
October 26 @ 12:00 – October 28 @ 12:00 CEST
We are excited to announce that the 6th Uppsala Transposon Symposium – integrating transposon and virus identification into evolution and disease research will be on October 26-28 in Uppsala. This year, we have an in-person symposium with abstract submission, a livestream for virtual attendance + questions, and an interactive workshop with tool developers. Day 3 will be dedicated to a tools and database workshop. This will be a unique opportunity to discuss ideas, meet experts, and showcase contributions. Tool developers from RepeatModeler/Masker, Repbase, dfam, TE-hub, etc. will all be in Uppsala!
Virtual attendants can ask written questions that the chair will read out for the in-person audience. You will have the chance for networking with fellow virtual attendants during the coffee breaks.
Abstract submission deadline is September 23, and we encourage especially early-career transposon researchers to submit an abstract for regular talk or lightning talk with poster.
As previously for this symposium, registration will be free of charge, and especially early-career scientists are encouraged to submit an abstract for a regular talk or poster with lightning talk. The free in-person attendance includes coffee/tea/snacks + >1 meal, (and other meals at a student-friendly price).
Please follow the link for a detailed program, more information and to register! The registration is open.
If you are looking for a second reason (apart from Uppsala October weather) to travel to Uppsala, note that the Long-Read Uppsala meeting (Oct 31-Nov 02) will be directly after the Uppsala Transposon Symposium. Abstract submission deadline for LRUA2022 is September 01.
