The application deadline for this meeting was May 18, 2013. You may still submit an application. However, it will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
The Calcium Signalling Gordon Research Seminar will be held in conjunction with the Calcium Signalling Gordon Research Conference
. Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRC in addition to an application for the GRS. Please refer to the Calcium Signalling GRC web page for more information.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Calcium Signalling is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The aim of this Gordon Research Seminar is to bring together students, postdocs and junior investigators in the field of calcium signaling to share cutting-edge research and to create opportunities for future collaborations. Scientific sessions will highlight current and topical thinking on the mechanisms underlying Ca2+ signaling and their role in physiology and disease.
The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by March 15, 2013. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.
