CTLS2018@VIB
Core Technologies For Life Sciences

After two successful editions of the CTLS conference (at Institut Pasteur, Paris in 2014 and at EMBL, Heidelberg in 2016), VIB is honoured to organize the 2018 conference in the beautiful and historic city of Ghent.

Over the 4 days of the conference there will be plenary and parallel sessions focusing on all facets of core facility operations, management and specific technologies of interest to core facility staff. Keynote talks will be given by 2001 Nobel laureate Paul Nurse and by Frances Weis-Garcia (President of ABRF). Poster sessions will be held to allow core scientists to present new developments in their technologies and a core facility marketplace area will also be available for facilities to promote their expertise and services. A Belgian beer tasting, guided boat trip through the city’s canals and conference dinner in the old fish market will highlight the social program.

CTLS2018@VIB aims to offer core facility staff and those interested in careers as expert scientists an opportunity to learn, network and forge alliances to strengthen core facility science throughout Europe.

The topics that will be discussed are: 

- Big data
- Emerging model systems
- Multi scale/Multi disciplinary
- Data management
- Single cell technologies
- Rigor and reproducibility
- Integrating infrastructures
- CF interactions with government, clients, institutions and each other

Workshops & Satellite meetings
The program includes seven company workshops and 4 satellite meetings. More info here.

Format: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation

Become a CTLS member

CTLS is a non-profit association that aims to bring together scientists, technical and administrative staff working in or in close association with shared resource laboratories, such as core facilities (CFs), and research infrastructures. To facilitate networking and discussion CTLS is organizing biannual conferences, annual member meetings and other events. Have a look at the CTLS website to learn more about the benefits of becoming a CTLS member. Registered members (academic and industry) will benefit from a substantial reduction (*) on their registration for CTLS2018@VIB.

CTLS2018 travel bursaries

The CTLS association is setting up 4 travel bursaries (up to 500 euros each) to participate in the CTLS2018 congress. The bursaries can be used to cover travel expenses and/or congress registration fee. More info here
