jECS Board 2022 Meeting Overview


The jECS satellite meeting will be held 20 Aug 2022, one day before the main ECS meeting, at University College Cork, Ireland.

The Junior European Calcium Society board was founded in 2019 with the goal of furthering collaboration, opportunities, and communication of science of early career calcium researchers. Over the past two years, jECS has coordinated online meetings to facilitate this goal, consisting of showcases of excellent calcium research by PhD students and Postdocs, workshops on equality, diversity, and inclusion and career trajectories, social events, and prizes for best presenters. In 2022, we are very excited to host our first in person meeting!

The day will consist of

  • opportunities for early career researchers to present their research,
  • a poster session, and
  • a workshop focused on grant and fellowship writing.

There are prizes for best oral and poster presentations. In addition, the two best oral presentations will be provided a slot to present at the main ECS meeting, an excellent way to showcase exciting calcium work!

Attendance is €50, which includes food for the day. Registration for the meeting is now open (abstract submission closed on 3 June 2022)!

We will end the day with a social event.

In the evening of the jECS satellite meeting, we have arranged a fun social event: a PubQuiz! This is an activity that will make you connect with your fellow attendants. You will work together in teams to solve riddles and answer trivia questions. At some point, your team will have the opportunity to challenge other teams and steal their points in a trivia duel! See you there.
