Interdisciplinary Origin of Life Meeting for Early Career Researchers (IOoL2022)
Date: 2022-08-03 to 2022-08-05
Site: Université de Montréal, Canada
Web: oolen.org/iool-2022/
Organisator: Alexandre Champagne-Ruel (alexandre.champagne-ruel@umontreal.ca)

Dear colleagues,

The Origin of Life Early Career Network (OoLEN) is pleased to announce that this year's Interdisciplinary Origin of Life Meeting for Early Career Researchers (IOoL2022) will take place on August 3-5 at the Université de Montréal, Canada. All expenses except travel (with possible exceptions) will be covered!

OoLEN brings together early-career scientists from multiple research areas to strengthen and accelerate the scientific output in origin of life research. Since its inception in 2018, OoLEN has grown into a global network of over a hundred members with a six-fold mission: Inclusion, Post-disciplinarity, Exchange, Communication, Community and Quality.

OoLEN's biannual meeting, the IOoL conference, is a prime opportunity for early-career researchers to present their work on origin of life in a relaxed setting, to exchange ideas across different disciplines relevant to understanding the origin and nature of living systems, and to stimulate discussions and ideas to help guide the future of research on these topics. The IOoL meeting further provides an opportunity for early career researchers to connect with each other and immerse themselves in the community outside their own labs. A previous meeting has resulted in OoLEN's first community paper.

Researchers interested in submitting an abstract are welcome to join the network through https://oolen.org/join/ (please mention your intention to participate in IOoL2022 when joining the network) and then send an email to oolearlycareer@gmail.com with subject line "Abstract for IOoL2022" containing a single .pdf file with the following information: name, affiliation, title, abstract (max. 250 words, in english), while also specifying if travel support is needed. Submissions will be considered both for oral presentations and poster sessions. The abstract deadline is April 22nd.

You are encouraged to visit OoLEN's website at https://oolen.org for more information, and don't hesitate to contact OoLEN or me directly for any further questions.
