NWO Biophysics with joined BIOPM meeting 2024

 NWO Biophysics with joined BIOPM meeting 2024

7 and 8 October




Would you like to contribute to NWO Biophysics 2024? You can do so by giving an oral or poster presentation about your research progress. The call for abstracts is now open, do not hesitate to submit your abstract!


Deadlines for submitting abstracts


Abstract submission and selection


You can submit your abstract for a poster or oral presentation via the NWO  website. Abstracts can be max. 1500 characters. When submitting your abstract, you have to choose a theme that applies to your research, the six themes are described on the NWO  website.

The programme committee will subsequently make a selection of the abstracts. In July, all authors will receive notice whether or not their abstract has been selected for an oral presentation.

The programme committee strives for a well-balanced and diverse programme with high quality talks. The following criteria will be taken into consideration during the selection of the abstracts:

  • Quality of the abstract.
  • Oral presentations are given by academic researchers. PhD students and Postdocs are prioritised during the selection.
  • The programme committee takes into account if the first authors have already presented their work before at NWO Biophysics.
  • The programme committee aims for a well-balanced programme that represents the variety of research groups in the Netherlands. Therefore, the number of abstracts selected from the same group will be limited.

If your abstract is not selected for an oral presentation, we will invite you for a poster presentation. The three best posters will be awarded a poster prize sponsored by the Society for Bio Physics and Biomedical Engineering. In addition, an audience poster award, sponsored by the Netherlands society for Microscopy, will be presented.

 Please note that you have to register for the conference independently from your abstract submission. Registration for NWO Biophysics opens in June and will close 5 September 2024, 14.00 hours CEST.
