An important goal of the FEBS-MPST Courses is to bring together senior with young scientists on an important and rapidly developing scientific field. In this regard, two Speakers’ Corners will be organized during the FEBS-MPST 2017. The participants will have the chance to meet and counteract with the invited speakers, chairs attending the meeting as well as with members of the organizing committee face-to-face in an informal atmosphere besides the seaside.  The invited speakers will be able to pass through their experience and advices to the young researchers.

The Poster Session represents a vital part of the FEBS-MPST meetings. All abstracts, whether or not selected for oral presentations, will be on display as posters (dimensions: 80 cm wide x 100 cm height) during the entire Course to provide ample time for informal discussions among students, participants and lecturers. Three Poster Sessions and poster discussion groups will be organized.
