On the 22-23 May 2024 the NWO-Life conference will take place in Egmond aan Zee with the central theme: the art of life.

NWO Life is an annual scientific conference covering all disciplines in the Dutch Life Sciences at all scales. It is meant to connect researchers, to explore and push boundaries, to discuss new or desirable developments in the field, to get inspired by each other’s research and approaches and to start new interdisciplinary collaborations. Expect world-leading invited speakers, inspiring parallel sessions, poster presentations from promising scientific talents, and a broad scope of workshops. For members of the five research communities within the life sciences, NWO Life2024 is the hub to physically meet, connect and discuss major topics addressing the further development of the field

The programme of NWO Life2024 consist of a plenary programme with keynote and invited speakers and 5 parallel tracks for oral presentations and discussions, two poster sessions, an exhibition floor, workshops, and a social programme. The 5 parallel tracks, covering both conference days, address the theme ‘The Art of Life’ at different scales. Do you want your contribution in the spotlights? Don’t hesitate to submit your abstract!

Abstract selection will be carried out per track. NWO Life2024 hosts 5 tracks:

  1. Biology of Molecules, Cells and Tissues
  2. From Genes to Organisms
  3. Organisms in their Environment
  4. Life and Planet
  5. Advanced Methods, Data and Analyses to understand Living systems

Seize the opportunity to present your work at NWO Life in e.g. Track 5 before 26 March 2024 (oral presentations, deadline will probably be extended) or 16 April 2024 (poster presentations). At NWO Life (22-23 May 2024), you get the chance to showcase your work, collaborate with peers, and drive impactful change in the scientific community. Finally, It’s not only for researchers. Software engineers, data stewards, etc. are also very welcome!

TDCC-LSH will also be present with a poster booth, so we hope to see you all there!
