    Other participant € 250 € 300

    The registration fee includes entry to all scientific sessions, the congress kit, coffee breaks, and welcome cocktail.

    Lunches (15 and 16 September) are not included in the fee and cost 10 EUR per day. Dinner on 15 September is also not included and costs 50 EUR. Participants can sign up for the social dinner and for lunch boxes during the payment procedure.

  • Payments

    Payment is possible by credit card or bank transfer. Further details about the payment procedure will be available through your personal myFISV, after registration.

    If you wish to be considered for a short talk, you should submit your abstract and make your payment not later than 30 June 2022.

    If you do not wish to be considered for a short talk, and be considered only for a poster presentation, you should submit your abstract and make your payment by 20 July 2022.

    Submitted abstracts will be discarded if the corresponding registration payment is not received within the above mentioned dates.

    Online registrations (and corresponding payments) close on 1 August 2022. After this date, only on-site registrations will be possible.

    N.B. Your registration fee depends on the effective date of payment, not when you register; please take this into consideration, especially if your administration is handling the payment through a lengthy bureaucratic procedure. Even if you register before 30 June 2022, if you don't pay within this deadline, you will be charged the regular registration fee.

  • Guidelines for Abstracts

    Abstracts are accepted exclusively online through your personal myFISV area (you will need to register to have access to the latter).

    The abstract submission deadline is 30 June 2022 to be considered for a short talk and 20 July 2022 for poster only.

    Submitted abstracts will be discarded if the corresponding registration payment is not received within the above mentioned dates.

    Only one abstract per participant is allowed. The abstract should be submitted by the presenting author only.


    The abstract text must be no longer than 1200 characters, spaces included (which is roughly equivalent to 200 words).

    The title must start in uppercase and continue in lowercase, except for conventional terms (ATP, DNA, NFκB, etc). Example:
        This title is written correctly
         This Title is Not Properly Written

    If more than one author (but only in that case), underline your name (the presenting author, in whatever position you appear in the author list) and use commas to separate the author names; do not use 'and' before the last author. Write your name and surname in full; for any other authors use initial(s) for the first name(s) followed by the surname. If more than one affiliation (but only in that case), use sequential superscript numbers to identify each institution. Example:
       Mario Rossi1, J. Doe2, F. Bloggs1,2
       1Dept Biomembranes, Golgi & Veratti Univ., Pavia, Italy
       2Dept Bioblast Analyses, Altmann Univ., Leipzig, Germany

    During the submission procedure authors can indicate a preference for poster or oral communications and to which of the following topics the abstract is destined.

    Titles are general, dedicated to all forms of life and aimed at enhancing the cross-contamination among different fields of research. The abstracts submitted will be subdivided into 12 mini-symposia, two for each topic.

    1. Environmental, Evolutionary and Developmental Biology
      Including how organisms adapt to harsh conditions and respond to changing environment including pollutants, (drugs) and stress.
    2. Genetics, Epigenetics and Chromosome Biology
      Including all investigations on genetic and epigenetic mechanisms regulating DNA biology such as, for example, transcription, replication, repair, chromosome and nuclear architecture.
    3. Genomics, Proteomics and Systems Biology
      Including all investigations implying systems biology such as mutational analysis, RNA expression, proteomics and metabolomics.
    4. Current trends in Biotechnology
      Including agricultural, environmental, animal, industrial, pharmaceutical and medical applications.
    5. Food and Nutrition
      Including sustainable agricultural approaches, functional foods, nutraceutics, food safety.
    6. Health and Disease
      Including plant and animal disease, infectious agents, innovative drug approaches and delivery systems, personalized medicine.

    The Evaluation Committee will review the abstracts for oral or poster presentations.

    Participants will be notified of the abstract selections by the end of July.
