Pre-GAMM 2023 – Dresden
The Pre-GAMM at the GAMM Annual Meeting 2023 in Dresden will take place at the following dates:

  • Scientific Onboarding: Mo. 22.05.2023 – Mi. 24.05.2023, online
  • Soft Skill Seminar: Mo. 29.05.2023, 5 pm – 6:30 pm, on-site

Details regarding the program will follow shortly on this page.

Whereas the Scientific Onboarding does not require a registration, the registration for the Soft Skill Seminar is now open. The participation in the event is free of charge, but the number of participants is limited on a first-come first-served basis. Please register by sending an e-mail to, including a short statement about your current career stage, your affiliation, as well as questions that you find interesting and relevant.

What is the Pre-GAMM?
The Pre-GAMM is an event organized by the GAMM Juniors and intends to prepare researchers for the GAMM Annual Meeting with regard to core topics at GAMM and a soft skill seminar “how to conference”. This seminar targets especially first-time participants and early-career PhD-students and consists of two parts.

Scientific Onboarding Events
The event is held virtual and free to access for every researcher, in the week before the conference starts. Here, introductory courses to a wider range of topics will be given by plenary speakers of the GAMM Annual Meeting. No prerequisite knowledge is required as these courses are meant to onboard you to a topic outside your own scientific field and prepare you for the plenary talks.

Soft Skill Seminar
The seminar is an on-site event and requires registration. It addresses especially first-time participants, who just started with their PhD and have none / very little conference experience. The event is held as a panel discussion and prepares you for the upcoming week, answering your questions on “How to conference?” with a board of excellent researchers ranging from Post-Docs to professors! The number of participants is limited on a first-come first-served basis. Participation in the event is free of charge.
