C. elegans Community Information

C. elegans logo

Meet face-to-face with the C. elegans research community at TAGC 2020! The meeting’s unique format offers multiple opportunities for you to share your work, learn about the latest research and tools, build community, and recruit newcomers to the field. Catch up with colleagues at the opening night C. elegans mixer and at designated community meeting spots throughout the meeting. We’ll make it easy to spot C. elegans people and posters via signage and badges.

Presentation Opportunities

If you submit an abstract, it will be reviewed and scheduled in one of three types of sessions:

  • Posters
  • Community (oral)
  • Thematic (oral)

Poster and Thematic Sessions will feature research from all communities, while C. elegans Community Sessions will be dedicated to research on Caenorhabditis elegans and related species.

When it comes to attending talks, you won’t be forced to choose between C. elegans and your favorite topic; Community Sessions and Thematic Sessions are held at different times, so there will be no need to miss out.
