We understand that registering for a conference is not essential right now and many researchers will be unable to register for a future conference of interest if their university or lab is temporarily closed. Therefore, you can simply register your interest here to be kept updated with details about this conference without committing to attending and our team will keep in touch with you regarding deadline reminders and grant opportunities. If you are looking to register to take advantage of the earlybird deadline or if you wish to submit an abstract, but you cannot pay the minimum deposit at this time, please contact us for a registration link which will allow you to register without a deposit. We hope these services are helpful during this difficult time.
The conference will bring together scientists working to better understand three-dimensional genome organization in various organisms, tissues, and cell state.
- Nuclear and subnuclear structure and function
- Topogically Associated Domains (TADs) and transcription in genome control
- Signalling cues, cellular states and genome organization
- Genome dynamics in DNA repair
- Genome structure in health, aging, and disease
- Chromatin loops and non-canonical nucleic acids structures in genome expression and stability
- Workshop I: Technical advances
- Workshop II: How to publish in the era of spatial genome organization?
Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity for students! Fully paying academics can bring a student for only $890. Unfortunately, Postdocs are not eligible. Both registration packages include; accommodation for the 26, 27, 28 February 2022 (on a shared basis for students) and a food and beverage package for the conference period. Once registered, please contact Chloe Trundle to obtain a special registration link for your student.

This conference is of interest to individuals seeking to understand the basic principles of spatial genome organization and how the disruption of this organization impacts health and disease, all within a beautiful natural setting. Those interested in learning or developing new technologies that help reveal more of the secrets of spatial genome organization should both benefit from and greatly enrich the conference. Attendees are expected to have a background in the basics of genetics, nuclear organization, microscopy, and sequencing.
This conference also provides a unique opportunity for trainees interested in spatial genome organization to learn about the latest findings in this rapidly growing area of research from both established and emerging leaders in the field. In addition, the conference provides numerous scientific and social networking opportunities for trainees to discuss their research activities and career plans with others in the field.
