Student activities

Your Student Advisory Council (SAC) and SETAC are organising several activities for you at the next SETAC Europe annual meeting in Seville, Spain in May 2010. We are convinced these are of interest to you!

Mentor lunch
This activity will take place on Monday 24 May, from 13.00 to 13.55 hrs (room to be confirmed). In a relaxing atmosphere, you will be given the chance to get in contact with established scientists from all over Europe. While enjoying your lunch, you can chat with people who have experience of working in your research field. Furthermore - and maybe more importantly - you have the opportunity to build on your own network and get to know not only established scientists but also other student members of SETAC.
Are you interested to attend this event? Tickets are free and will be available at the on-site registration desk on Monday morning 24 May. Please note that the Mentor Lunch is limited to 100 participants and seats will be assigned on a first-come first-serve basis.

Poster mentoring
Would you like to get some input from external scientific professionals concerning the content and quality of your poster presentation? This activity will give you the opportunity to get unbiased feedback on your poster. Your assigned mentor will come for a visit during the poster session and chat with you! Please note that the number of poster mentors will limit the number of mentees, who will be assigned randomly.
Are you presenting a poster and interested in having a mentor? Please indicate your interest by completing the online survey for students on by 15 March (Early Registration Deadline).

Student party
The student party will take place on Tuesday 25 May at “Disco Café Casino de la Exposición”, from 22.00 hrs onwards. The Café is situated next to the Teatro Lope de Vega and not far from the University of Seville, and has a luxurious terrace and a cosmopolitan atmosphere. This exclusive terrace, located just outside the Casino de la Exposición, complements the exhibition hall and activities located in this landmark building, built for the 1929 Iberoamerican Exhibition.
Join us for drinks and dancing! The price for an entrance ticket including 3 drinks is 20 €. Participants must pre-book at time of registration ( to obtain a ticket.

Student Assembly
A Student Assembly will be held (exact time to be confirmed). During this meeting you will be informed about past and ongoing activities of the SAC. Furthermore, you can elect six new people for the SAC representing you within SETAC Europe for the following 2 years.

Silent auction
We are also planning a silent auction to gather extra funds for further SAC activities. More information coming soon.
