Programme

Like the earlier editions, this meeting will be divided into two parts but with a switch. The first part—Young Investigators' Meeting will commence from the afternoon of 6th March 2017. This will feature PDF and YI poster presentations, scientific presentations by internationally renowned scientists, panel discussions and group activities. The Postdoctoral Fellows Satellite Meeting begins from 9th March for all Postdoctoral Fellow (PDF) attendees and recruiters from various Institutions and Universities. For a day and a half, there will be networking sessions, short talks from the recruiters and talks by PDFs. 

PDF participants are expected to stay for the complete duration of the meeting (Satellite and YIM), and YI participants to attend the entire duration of the main YI meeting.
