Passive participation (non-presenting)

PLEASE NOTE: The online registration for the 13th edition of LIMSC is not open yet. Follow us on social media to keep up with the latest LIMSC news and get notified when the registration will open. In the meantime, feel free to contact us if you have any questions!


Anyone is welcome to visit LIMSC. As a passive participant, you can take part in all scientific and social programme activities, but do not have to present any research during oral and poster presentation sessions.

Why visit LIMSC as a passive participant?

As a passive participant at LIMSC, you can attend presentations of fellow participants, learn about international research, participate in interactive and challenging workshops, be enlightened by the leading international figures in research and obtain ideas for your own research project. On top of this, you can sign up for all activities of our extensive social programme. Get to know the pubs of Leiden during our pubcrawl, suit up for a Black Tie Dinner with live music and spend a full day in Amsterdam during our post conference tour! During these social activities, you will get the opportunity to meet devoted and welcoming students from all over the world, while also getting to know the beautiful city of Leiden.

At the Career & Internship Fair on Friday, you can explore potential career opportunities by talking to representatives from relevant companies, organisations and universities, presenting a variety of graduate programmes, research projects and internships. During the Speed Date Lunch on Thursday, you will get the chance to network with renowned researchers from the LUMC, in an informal way. You can ask them anything: about internships, PhD programmes or about studying in Leiden.

During LIMSC, you will be able to experience a medical conference up close, with the benefits of student activities and pricing. Learn about the newest innovations in the medical world, listen to prominent guest speakers and build international friendships that will remain for life!
