The ESHG Conference has two main scopes: to provide a platform for the dissemination of the most exciting advancements in the field of human genetics and to foster the education of the upcoming generation of human geneticists. Plenary, concurrent, and educational sessions, concurrent symposia, workshops, and poster viewing fill in an exciting program. The Scientific Program Committee (SPC) defines the topics, with the goal to update the audience on emerging concepts, mechanisms, and technologies in human genetics, providing at the same time a broad view on the progress made in the different areas of our discipline. Invited talks are given by world class speakers and best abstracts, many of which submitted by young doctors and scientists, are selected by the SPC for oral presentations. The meeting in Vienna will also allow to make direct contacts between scientists and exhibitors, who will present their new product portfolio, with practical demonstrations, to help you in your clinical or experimental work.
Also, our meeting has become renown for the networking evening, a traditional event where generations intermix and where you can talk to friends – why not, also of science? – in a relaxed atmosphere.
In addition, to a high-quality scientific program, we are confident that also the location of Vienna in the heart of Europe and its many attractions, including historical medical sites and museums, will facilitate a broad participation to the meeting. Last but not least, 2022 will be the year of Gregor Mendel’s birth bicentennial. Brno and other sites in Czechia, linked to Mendel’s life are very close to Vienna. Therefore, those who have time, can take the opportunity to extend their stay to visit these places and learn more about the scientist who is considered the “father of genetics”.
