Dear Young Scientists,

On behalf of YSF2009 Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure and honour to announce the 9th FEBS Young Scientist Forum, which will be held from 2nd to 4th of July 2009 in Prague, Czech Republic.

The Young Scientist Forum (YSF) was firstly established by FEBS in 2001 aiming to provide Ph.D. students and young postdoctoral fellows of the FEBS Society with opportunities to meet and make friends as well as to discuss scientific topics, career development and future collaborations in a friendly and informal environment. Preceding the annual FEBS Congress, YSF is traditionally organized by local Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows. YSF is a satellite meeting constituting a hallmark of the annual FEBS Congress.

This year over one hundred participants from all over the world are going to attend the forum. The YSF2009 organizers are cordially inviting you to participate at the YSF2009 "Labyrinth of cells and molecules" by submitting your abstract. The YSF2009 will be a two-day symposium with pioneers and distinguished plenary speakers, selected Ph.D. students and early postdoctoral fellows delivering short oral presentations on their research topics along with poster presentations delivered by the rest participants during the afternoons. 

Given that FEBS is dedicated to promote the interaction between Ph.D. students and young scientists, the Organizing Committee of the YSF2009 proudly announces that grants for all accepted participants will be awarded. Furthermore, all YSF participants will also attend free of charge (registration fee plus accommodation) the subsequent 34th FEBS Congress , that will be held from July 4th to July 9th, 2009, in Prague, Czech Republic.

The YSF2009 Organizing Committee promises that we will make every possible effort to offer you an exciting symposium that will exceed your expectations. We are looking forward to receiving your application and to welcoming you in Prague!
