What and why
This retreat is for all AGEM researchers (PhD-students, post docs / staff members and PI’s) of the Amsterdam UMC, that work in the fields of Gastroenterology, Nutrition, Endocrinology and/or Metabolism. The goal of the AGEM retreat is to discuss, share and learn from each other’s research.
Like previous years, you can expect keynote speakers, workshops, PhD-student / post doc presentations and entertainment. More information on the program will follow in the upcoming months.
This year we would like to add a new aspect to the AGEM retreat by encouraging PhD-students and post docs to present their research in an alternative way.
• Think of an out-of-the-box way to present your research (slides without text, movie, theatre, storytelling, interactive quiz, etc.). No boring powerpoint slides, but surprise the audience with your creativity!
• Keep in mind that the retreat will be online and think of a way to present your data that fits well with an online format.
The most original, creative presentation will be awarded with a serious price!
During your abstract submission you can indicate your preferred way of presenting. Please note that the organization may assign you a different presentation type and be aware that there might not be enough time for everybody to present.

Abstract submission is mandatory for PhD-students that want to attend the retreat, post docs may choose to submit an abstract.
Regardless of a meeting on location or an online meeting, the abstracts will be combined in an abstract book that will be distributed to all participants.
Abstract submission deadline: April 28th 2021
Attending the retreat is free of charge, however registration is mandatory for everybody. Registration will open later.
