EuBIC-MS Winter School 2022

About the Winter School

The EuBIC-MS Winter School on computational mass spectrometry (MS) takes place every two years. Its aim is to bring together the users and developers of computational mass spectrometry tools, as well as academia and industry.

The Winter School starts with an educational day dedicated to workshops and trainings in established computation MS tools and workflows. The following days, internationally renowned invited speakers give lectures and practical workshops covering the aspects of identification, quantification, result interpretation, and integration of MS data. Check out the full program for all keynote and workshop descriptions.

This year’s Winter School will take place in person on 21-24 March 2022 at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência in Oeiras, Portugal. Registration is now open!

Organize a workshop

All participants have the opportunity to organize a workshop at the EuBIC Winter School 2022. We will select:

  • One full-day entry-level workshop that will take place on the 1st day of the conference.
  • One half-day specialized workshop. This is a great opportunity to present a tool that you have developed. Other specialized workshops will be hosted by select keynote speakers.

Abstracts can be submitted through an online form until February 14th 2022. Abstracts will then be selected by the organizational committee based on general relevance to the wide computational mass spectrometry community. Decisions will be communicated on February 28th 2022.

Present your work with a flash talk or poster

We encourage all attendants to present their work with a poster. The organizing committee will make a selection of abstracts for a short 5-minute presentation. We especially encourage Early Career Researchers to do so. Select travel grants for Early Career Researchers can also be applied for through this form. See travel grants for more information. Abstract submission for flash talks and travel grants closed on February 14th 2022. The extende poster abstract deadline ended on 28/02/2022. Abstract acceptance was communicated on February 28th 2022. 

Poster boards are 192 by 94 cm and accommodate portrait A0 format. Materials to attach posters to the poster boards will be provided by the organization.

Registration

Registration to this in-person event is limited to 100 participants. Due to this limit, we apply a first-come / first-served registration system and only accept direct credit card payments. Please see registration fees for the different registration tiers, and details on what is or is not included in the price. Also see cancellation policy for all information on refunds and applicable administrative fees upon cancellation by an attendant or the organizers. Travel grants are available through EuPA upon abstract submission or through some national proteomics associations.

Early Bird registration for EuPA-member students ends on 14/02/2022. General registration closes on 7/03/2022.
