IBA annuaI Meeting – Trondheim – 2020

It is a great pleasure to invite all IBA-members to the annual IBA meeting taking place in Trondheim in October!

The meeting will be held October 26th-27th at the Scandic Lerkendal hotel. As the name implies the hotel is in close vicinity to Lerkendal stadium where Rosenborg Fotballklubb plays their games.

Register for the meeting here. The registration deadline is 31st August.

All IBA phd-, postdocs and research medical students are expected to present their research project at the annual IBA meeting. Submit your abstract here, latest by August 31st. Please state your preference for oral or poster session.

There will be prizes for the best poster and best oral presentation!

The meeting fee,  accommodation and travel expenses will be covered for all members. Attendees can stay at the Scandic Lerkendal Hotel from the 26th-27th of October and meals are included.

NB: Due to possible restrictions because of the corona virus pandemic: do not book travel before you get a final confirmation from us. We are looking into the option of a digital meeting as a back-up plan.

If there are regulations with regards to group size at the time of the meeting, Phd-students, medical research students and postdocs will be prioritized (in that order). Other sign ups are prioritized after the “first come” principle.

The meeting will start  October 26th  with registration at 10 am and will finish with lunch at 1 pm 27th October.
