Poster session

Meet the scientist session – Oliver Hobert
Round table discussion between ten bench scientists and Prof. Hobert

All session talks will be live followed by a live Q&A session. Please note that talks will not be recorded so make sure to join the talk on time!

Poster sessions

We will be hosting three virtual poster sessions. Poster abstracts will be available in advance. Presenters will be assigned one of the three days and they will then virtually display their poster during one of the networking sessions. Attendees will be able to join their session to see and discuss the poster via video chat. Make sure to register here and submit your abstract by February 23rd.


If you want to present a poster of your work or just listen in on the talks, please register here where you can include your poster abstract, so that we can send you the relevant information and links. Once you register you will receive a confirmation email from us. There will be a 2hr poster session during the SFB conference. However, all posters will be accessible for viewing throughout the entire SFB and SY-Stem meetings.
