SEB2020 Prague: 'Dynamic organization of the nucleus across kingdoms

Friday, 17 January 2020


Registration and Abstract submission is now open for our session 'Dynamic organization of the nucleus across kingdoms' at the Society for Experimental Biology Conference in Prague from the 7th -10th July 2020.

We have an international group of plenary and invited speakers and organisers (see below) and are inviting oral and poster presentations. A number of opportunities remain for papers in a Special Issue of the Journal 'Nucleus' associated with the meeting and opportunities are available for grants for young scientists to attend the meeting.

For registration:

For abstract submission:

For travel grants for young scientists:

If you require any further information about the session, please contact David Evans -


This meeting is a great candidate for INDEPTH members to apply for Inclusiveness Target Countries (ITC) travel grants.
