The SYMPOSIUM took place from June 14-16, 2023 and was open for all interested students and scientists from the Paris and Munich communities and beyond. During the Symposium renowned speakers from the two communities presented their latest insights into Epigenetics in sessions on quantitative approaches, DNA methylation, chromatin regulation and chromatin dynamics. Short talks and poster presentations from early career (doctoral and postdoctoral) researchers were selected from the submitted abstracts.

SYMPOSIUM programme and abstract booklet.

The WORKSHOP took place on June 14 and June 16 prior to and following the symposium, and was open for selected early stage doctoral and postdoctoral researchers new to the field of Epigenetics. The workshop focussed on the core concepts of cutting-edge Epigenetics research, taught by senior academic experts, as well as career orientation and communication skills, presented by alumna and professionals in the field. Workshop participants had the opportunity to network and exchange, with discussions during the workshop, as well as with featured short talks and posters during the symposium.
Travel grants were available.
