Oral contributions

The oral sessions will be held as webinar. The software BigBlueButton will be used. You do not have to install any software on your computer. You just need a web browser on your device (computer, smartphone) that supports HTML5 (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, …). We will send you the address to connect.

The screen of the speaker's computer will be shared, i.e. you are free which program on your computer you use to show your slides and whatever you want to show (animations, videos). However, keep in mind that some participants may have low internet bandwidth.
It will be possible to test the webinar system which is used for the NMDB symposium in advance. For deadline see below. Contact: reg@nmdb.eu

Poster contributions

As the “posters” will be distributed as pdf-files, it makes sense that the paper size of your poster is A4 and not A0. Orientation: Landscape. The text should be short. A maximum of 5 pages is advised. It will be possible to introduce the posters by a short oral presentation (2-5 min) during the oral sessions.
The link for poster submission will be given here.


The abstract for each contribution (oral/poster) should have the following format:

We are in the process to explore where the proceedings will be published. Proceeding articles will be reviewed.
Templates will be published here as soon as we know the details.
