    How to apply?

    Please note that the Novo Nordisk Foundation Science Cluster Conferences offers exclusive opportunities to network in an intimate setting with a carefully selected, limited body of participants. Allocation of seats at this conference takes place through a selection process through which our Scientific Committee chooses the best candidates for the conference. If you get accepted for the conference, your participation (excluding travels) is covered by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. We expect all participants and speakers to actively take part in the full duration of the conference.

    The call opens 15 May 2023.

    If you wish to attend our conference, you will need to apply and submit an abstract* in our application system: Oxford Abstracts

    • If you have not used the system before, click REGISTER to create an account.
    • You will then receive a mail with which you can login.
    • When you have logged in, you can apply to the conference under the name: Protein Signaling – in space and time
    • Please fill out applicant info and abstract.


    *If you are from industry or if, for another reason, it does not make sense for you to submit an abstract, you can apply with a motivation instead. Our scientific committee will evaluate your relevance for the conference based on your motivation.

    All accepted participants will be expected to present a poster at the conference.


    Abstract submission: the application deadline is 15 august, 2023

    Evaluation of incoming applications: TBA

    Notifications to applicants: TBA

    SHORT TALKS: Some applicants will be invited to give a short talk during the conference based on their submitted abstract. Selected applicants will be notified in the fall of 2023.

    Registration fee, accommodation and local costs for all approved applicants are covered by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. Only travel expenses to and from the conference venue will be at your own expense.
