Kerstan ERM Poster Awards

We are pleased to announce that the Tistou & Charlotte Kerstan Foundation is sponsoring four Poster Awards with a total of 3,000€.  You can find more details here.

The meeting is quickly approaching, and we look forward to welcoming you in Tübingen soon! 

Almost 260 colleagues from 22 countries have registered, with 75% international participants. The shorter talk formats allowed us to accommodate 37 speakers (19 female, 18 male). In addition, nearly 160 posters will be presented, with data from at least 18 species.   

Here are a couple of important points: 

  • To those of you who have submitted an abstract: If you have not received an explicit personal invitation for a talk, your submission is scheduled as a poster presentation
  • Please check out the detailed presentation guidelines for both posters and talks.
  • Poster presenters: You will find in the program/abstract booklet, for which of the two sessions your poster is scheduled, and which poster board is yours.
  • All participants should have received a link to the PDF of the program/abstract booklet. Every participant will receive this booklet also as a hardcopy at the beginning of the meeting.

If you have any questions — also regarding travel, arriving in Tübingen etc. — please contact us (

We extended the abstract submission deadline to Sunday, May 21, 2023. Please note that a further extension will be difficult for us, as we need the abstracts to finalize the program, that is fill the remaining slots for talks.

If you are registered and have received the registration confirmation email, you should get another email with the link to the abstract submission form. If you do not receive that link within a day, please contact us via email ( The online registration stays open until the meeting capacity has been reached.
