For the third time, the ESHG conference in Copenhagen 2017 will have a session dedicated to storytelling in Medical Genetics.
We invite professionals in medical genetics to submit a short video in which you describe an event or moment when genetics made a difference and had a profound impact on how you see the field of Medical Genetics. These stories can be happy, sad, informative or funny. The only requirement is that they are real experiences of yourself or your colleagues.
Deadline for submission is: April 17, 2017, 24.00 hrs CET
A small jury will select few of these stories to be presented as brief interview type discussion in a special Workshop on Saturday May 27, 2017 at 10:30 hrs.
Those selected will get free access to the meeting and two complimentary tickets for the conference party. Presenters from eligible countries will also receive a contribution towards travel expenses.
So get hold of a smart phone, do a 1-2 minute max video (only one video per submitter).
Maximum allowed size of the video: 64 MB! Preferred file types: mov, avi, mp4.
Please do keep a high resolution copy for the presentation at the conference.
