Sessions for early career scientists

A huge variety of General Assembly sessions are of interest to early career scientists (ECS). Now that the 2018 General Assembly programme is finalised, we've created a shortlist of courses and meetings that have a strong ECS focus. You can also find our extended list of ECS related sessions on the General Assembly website, in the scientific programme under 'Sessions of special interest for ECS'.
