The ELIXIR All Hands 2022 will be held in the Eye Filmmuseum, Amsterdam.

The 8th ELIXIR All Hands meeting will take place 7-10 June 2022 in Amsterdam. The meeting brings together members of the ELIXIR community from across the ELIXIR Nodes, and collaborators from partner organisations, in order to review ELIXIR’s achievements and activities so far and discuss plans for the future. The All Hands meeting is also the venue for the ELIXIR-CONVERGE Annual General Assembly Meeting.

The meeting is planned to be a face-to-face meeting with the programme focussed on those attending in person. We are considering to stream the plenary sessions but this will be confirmed nearer to the meeting.

Please note that Monday 6 June is a bank holiday in the Netherlands and many other European countries. There will be plenary and workshop sessions on Tuesday and Thursday, while Wednesday is focussed on mini-symposia with a poster session and meeting dinner in the evening. The meeting ends on Friday 10 June at noon, with a lunch available until 1pm CEST.

Accommodation

For the 2022 All Hands meeting, ELIXIR will have a block reservation for accommodation for 100 rooms. More information will be made available later.

The venue is located in central Amsterdam with plenty of options, but keep in mind that June is a busy month in the city and therefore it is recommended to reserve accommodation early. We will provide a list of recommended hotels closer to the meeting.

Registration

The registration to the All Hands meeting will open in February 2022 with limited capacity. Those individuals that have been selected to give a presentation will have a priority in the registration process.
