Call for Abstracts

During DigitalLife2019 the poster session will be the major arena to showcase ongoing activities of your research project. Digital Life Norway is a diverse scholarly community in terms of institutional and disciplinary affiliations that is engaged in an experiment to try out new ways of doing research in the field of biotechnology. Keywords are transdisciplinarity, innovation, FAIR data management, and societal responsibility. There is an extraordinary wealth in this diversity for doing exciting, cutting-edge research, on condition that we foster our ability to talk to each other, and learn about our respective expertises, methods and research infrastructures. Mapping and sharing competencies was one of the priorities that the DLN community has identified during a planning meeting the past November in Selbu.

This is why we invite you to submit abstracts for posters that present your research in ways that make explicit the competencies and activities necessary for doing it. Your posters will communicate to a multidisciplinary audience who will hopefully discover that you not only do relevant research, but that you have key competencies that are needed by somebody else. Think of possible future collaborations. By competencies we mean your domain expertise, technical skills and access to instruments, and also experiences and skill sets in the extended DLN brief of innovation, governance and societal responsibility, as well as FAIR data management. We invite you to not only argue the scientific relevance of your research but also share for whom you think it matters and why.

The conference participants will get to vote for the best poster, whose authors will be awarded the DL2019 poster prize. The conference organizing committee will select some abstracts for short, oral presentations.
