13th Faculty & Staff retreat 2024

The 13th Faculty & Staff retreat of the SCCL will be an on-site only event and will take place at the Swiss Tech Convention Center, in Lausanne on September 26 & 27, 2024.

Registration to the retreat is limited to people from the institutions represented in the SCCL and a few external people invited by the organising committee (i.e., academic partners, foundations, sponsors).
The presentations, posters and discussions during the retreat will only be available to people that have registered and should not be posted on social media.
We would like to emphasize that considering the increasing size of the SCCL retreat audience:

  • confidentiality cannot be ensured by the organisation and those submitting abstracts shall take this into account.
  • abstracts shall be submitted by category and will be selected by the organizing committee. A submission does not imply on automatic selection.
  • to best represent to diversity of research topics in the SCCL, at most one abstract per group can be submitted for a short talk and the selected abstract should be approved by the PI. The other abstracts will be presented as posters.

This year’s retreat will feature Stefani Spranger, from Koch Institute for Integrative cancer Research and member at Ludwig Center at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

We will also have a social event on the evening of the first day.

The registration fee is CHF 120.-.

Standard registration opens at the beginning of June and closes on August 30th, 2024.

Please submit your abstract for short talks and posters through the registration form (available soon) by July 1st, 2024.

Short Talks and posters’ instructions

Training credits for continuum education in animal experimentation will be confirmed soon.

Looking forward to meet you at the retreat!
