Active & Passive Participation
The LIMSC aims to bring together a wide variety of medical related subjects, with the exception of dentistry and pharmacy. All students who have carried out research during their (Bachelor and/or Master) studies in the medical or biomedical fields and who wish to present their results at the LIMSC are invited to apply by submitting their abstract before the deadline of November 2nd 2012.
Please check our abstract submission criteria for the required format for submitting your abstract.
The Program Committee, a panel of clinicians and researchers of Leiden University Medical Center, will thoroughly and objectively evaluate the abstracts.
A total of 200 abstracts will be selected to present their research at LIMSC 2013, which will be invited for an oral or poster presentation. The top 120 applicants will be invited to perform an oral presentation in one of the parallel sessions consisting of 8 minutes, followed by 2 minutes of discussion. The remainder 80 applicants will be invited to perform a 4 minutes poster presentation.
Furthermore travel grants and prize money will be granted. Travel grants will be granted to motivated students with excellent abstracts. These students will receive more information about the procedures of application for travel grants after acceptance of their abstract The top presentations (oral or poster) will be awarded with prize money up to 1500 Euros, as well as the possibility for a research internship placement.
The students who are invited to present their research at the LIMSC can share hotel rooms at a three-star hotel, conveniently located between the Leiden city center and the conference location (the Leiden University Medical Center). We can also help active participating students with arranging their visa for The Netherlands.
Applicants whose abstracts are not selected will be notified and invited to participate in the LIMSC as visitors.
Abstract submission and active registration has been closed.
The LIMSC is open to all interested visitors. As a visitor you can participate in all parts of the Scientific Program - attend the presentations of the student researchers, learn about international research, participate in the interactive and challenging workshops, be enlightened by the leading international figures in research and possibly obtain ideas for your own research project.
At the Career and Internship Fair you can explore potential career opportunities by talking to representatives from relevant companies and organizations, and universities presenting a variety of Master programs, research projects and internships.
Collectively with the Social Program and the workshops and lectures by prominent international speakers on the future of medicine and (bio-) medical sciences, the LIMSC is guaranteed to be an extremely interesting conference, as well as an unforgettable experience.
Visitors of the LIMSC can book a three-star hotel. Rooms will be shared with other participants. Another option that the LIMSC offers the passive participants is the Typical Dutch Student Housing (TDSH).
The TDSH arrangement is available for 10,- Euros per night and consists of a night sleep in a typical Dutch student house in which you can fully enjoy the Dutch lifestyle and warm personalities. We request you to bring along a camping mattress and a sleeping bag since not all student houses have extra beds. Finally, we would like to clarify that basic lodging (sharing a student room with a current student) will be provided.
