The UCT Science Day will be held as on-site event in Lecture Hall 3 at Campus Lahnberge in Marburg. Due to the capacity of the lecture hall, a personal online registration of each participant is necessary. 

The participation is free of charge, but since the number of participants will be limited, we cannot guarantee that every registered participant can be finally admitted to the UCT Science Day. Tickets will be allocated on a “first come, first served” basis, so we kindly recommend registering promptly. After reaching the maximum number of participants, the registration portal will be closed and all further candidates will be put on a late list.

Please note: Registration for the UCT Science Day is now closed. To be put on the late list, please contact uct-scienceday@uni-marburg.de!

Abstracts / Talks and Poster Exhibition

The abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Organizing Committee. You will receive an e-mail notification and will be informed of acceptance and selection for talk or poster presentation. 

The posters will be showcased in two poster sessions. The authors of the best poster abstracts will have the chance to present their posters as flash talks in the plenary sessions before the poster sessions.

Posters should be printed in DIN A0, which is 84.1 cm (width) x 118.9 cm (height). Poster stripes and pins for poster setup will be provided at the conference venue.

The best posters and the best talk will be awarded at the end of the UCT Science Day!
