Dear friends and colleagues,

it is our pleasure to invite you to the first D·A·CH Dictyostelium workshop.

The meeting will take place online on March 11th and is exclusively for Dictyostelium labs from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

We will start around 9 am and have scientific contributions until early evening. In the following, everyone who is willing should be prepared to get a cold drink and snacks in order to join the (virtual) socializing part of the workshop.

In addition to the talks from the groups, we have invited two keynote speakers:

  • Joan Strassmann, Washington University in St. Louis, USA, and
  • Sergio Grinstein, University of Toronto, Canada.

If you would like to present your work, please send an email to abstracts@dicty-workshop.de with the title of our talk until February 28th, 2021. We in particular encourage young scientists to present!

Because conferences benefit from everyone sharing novel and unpublished data, we will take extra care to make this virtual meeting safe. One very important point is that in order to keep track of the participants, we ask you to please make sure that every member of your group who wants to participate registers online here until March 5th, 2021. It will not be allowed to distribute the meeting link, instead, we would like to ask you to rather spread the word of the meeting beforehand. We will send then the meeting links to all people who have signed up. Also, everyone will need to log into the meeting with his/her full real name; i.e. we will make sure only registered participants are in the meeting.

Looking forward to a great workshop,
Falk & Caroline
