Order a lunch box to attend a lunchtime session
During the 23rd Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics lunches are scheduled from 13:00 to 14:15. Lunches will be served on the ground floor in two open spaces near the Exhibition Area.
In parallel, three sessions are programmed during the lunch-break (one per day) from 13:00 to 14:15. The sessions are briefly described below and will take place in room 007 with a capacity for 212 people.
Regular lunches will consist in a pick-up buffet. However, dishes and glasses are not allowed in the classrooms. For that reason, delegates who want to attend any of the lunch break sessions must reserve the corresponding lunchbox on your home page after logging in:
» Order lunch boxes here (you must be logged in to do this).
By default, if you have not reserved the corresponding lunchbox, your lunch ticket will be valid only for the pick-up buffet of that day and vice versa, if you have reserved the lunchbox for a given day, this ticket will be valid only for the corresponding lunchbox.
The reserved tickets for the corresponding lunch will be given at the Registration Desk.
Monday July 3rd. Break-out session. What is the Future of Scientific Publication?
The landscape for scientific publication has become more complex in the past decade, and the desire (and often demand) for open-access dissemination of scientific work has increased. What options exist now for open-access publication, what are the trends for the future and how can the individual scientist and scientific society help to guide this development? In this session, representatives of three journals will provide a short overview of their open-access policies and their vision for the future. This will be followed by an open discussion with the participants to gather your important feedback, as ESB members, on future requirements for scientific publication.
Speakers representing Elsevier, Taylor & Francis and European Cells & Materials.
Tuesday July 4th. Student Workshop - Get prepared to apply to competitive postdoctoral fellowships
Each PhD thesis is unique and has its own strengths and weaknesses. The number of journal articles or impact factor of the journals is not everything. PhD candidates who foresee to apply to competitive fellowships should timely identify the specific assets that their PhD can bring to their CV and build a relevant track record around these assets. Being aware of the policy that underlies a call, and of the way reviewers are asked to evaluate the candidates is of utmost importance.
Speaker: Mr Jesús Rojo, National Contact Point Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions, Madri+d Foundation (Spain)
Round Table: Prof Gwendolen Reilly, Panel member for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships programme, University of Sheffield (UK); Dr Andrea Malandrino, Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow, Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (Spain) and Massachussets Institute of Technology (USA), Mr Miguel Ángel Ariza Gracia, Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Applicant, University of Zaragoza (Spain) and University of Bern (Switzerland)
Chair: Dr Jérôme Noailly, former Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow
Wednesday July 5th - Spanish Chapter ESB meeting.
The Spanish Chapter ESB meeting is specially addressed to the Spanish researchers in biomechanics who work abroad and attend the ESB conference, although, any ESB delegate is welcome. The main goal of this meeting is to connect these researchers with the members of the ESB Spanish chapter. There will be a brief presentation of each Spanish research group and researchers working abroad are invited to present their groups and lines of research to the Spanish members of the ESB Spanish chapter (contact María José Rupérez, email@example.com). Do not miss it.
Speakers: María José Rupérez, Josep María Font Llagunes, Joaquín Ojeda Granja, members of the Council of the ESB Spanish Chapter and María Ángeles Pérez Ansón, member of the ESB Council.
