Please note the following details:

We have a limited capacity (150 attendees) for the Natural Killer cell symposium. The registration deadline is cancelled. Based on experience with previous symposia, we expect that we will reach this capacity before the end of the registration deadline. If we reach capacity, we will have to close registration and start a waiting list. So, if you are interested in attending we strongly encourage you to register early!

You have to register first in order to submit an abstract. Directly after registration you will receive the instructions for abstract submission by e-mail.

All registered participants will receive a bag containing a printed copy of the meeting program, abstracts and an index of participants and sponsor material. In addition, every participant will receive all abstracts of the Natural Killer cell symposium as a pdf file via email or web-download several days before the symposium starts.

Registration fees include all meeting materials, coffee breaks, lunch and dinners during the symposium. It does not include accommodation, which you will have to book separately (see ‘venue’ for details). We are happy to offer a reduced registration fee for students who have not completed their PhD or equivalent degree. To qualify for the reduced rate you must email this form (a confirmation letter from your supervisor confirming your status) to the meeting office after your registration.

Regular registration: 250 €
Student registration: 150 €

After the registration you can pay the registration fee via bank transfer (recommended for European participants) or by credit card via PayPal (a PayPal account is not required to make this payment). If you do not pay your registration fee within 21 days of registration, your abstract will not be considered for presentation and your registration will be cancelled.

The NK-cell symposium is postponed (Please note the COVID-19 statement on the front page)
