ISSC International Student Scientific Conference

An annual conference organised at the Medical University of Gdansk, Poland, giving young scientists an opportunity to present their achievements and findings in front of multicultural audience including both students and well-known academics. The event welcomes students of medical and related fields as well as young doctors. It is always honoured with a guest lecture delivered by our magnificent guests.
The main idea behind the conference is that it is organised by students for their peers. Therefore we give our best to meet highest standards and make ISSC an event we would love to attend, ensuring an excellent level of organisation and attractive classes.
Our main goal is to promote INNOVATION in medicine.

The conference consists of several panels covering fields such as internal medicine, pharmacology, modern medical techniques, sports medicine – when it comes to organisers’ ideas on this – sky is the limit so everyone will certainly find something to meet their expectations. During the event you may participate in a competition, take part in workshops, listen to lectures, present your findings at the poster competition.
Every year the quality of the meeting is guaranteed by our patrons, among them the President of Gdansk , Gdynia and Sopot patronage of the Pomorskie Marshal.

So far we were honoured by the presence of (among others):
• Prof. Walter Sigenthaler (Switzerland)
• Prof. Vladimir Petrovich Skulachev (Russia)
• Prof. Ewa Bobber (Germany)
• Prof. Lucedio Greci (Italy)
• Prof. Martin A. Acquardo (USA) 

The conference takes place in one of the most beautiful cities in Poland – a seaside port Gdansk with rich history and plenty to offer for modern-life lovers ☺ Events happening as part of this year’s ISSC will be carried at the Invasive Medicine Centre – one of the most modern hospitals in Europe (completed in 2012).
Important before

Alright – so you have devoted plenty of time to your research and data preparation. But equally important is a successful presentation. Here are some tips that will guarantee a smooth and spectacular performance:
First and foremost – let us know you are here! Check in and collect your conference materials.
The guests range from students, through young doctors to respected professors so we would appreciate if you wore smart clothes on the day of the participation and certainly if you are about to perform in front of the audience.
Make sure you get to the venue well before time – it takes about half an hour to travel from the Gdansk Glowny station to the Invasive Medicine Centre so take that into account! Get a tram number – 2, 3, 6, 9, 11 or 12.
Your presentation should be done in PowerPoint or Prezi programme and brought to the coordinator not later than 60 minutes before the beginning of the session. You can use a CD, DVD or pendrive for that purpose.
We do realise that there are sometimes technical problems with starting the presentation so you will be given a chance to check if everything works fine either if the room is not occupied by any event or 30 minutes before the session.
If you miss the coffee break – do not worry. There are plenty of bistros around where you can have lunch.

1 Can my poster take part in competition on its own, without me presenting the work?
2 Can I present the work that previously has been presented on other conference?
3 Can I change presenting person after abstract submission?
4 Can we present our work as a team?
5 Do co-authors receive any kind of certificate?
6 Are spaces included in 3000 characters limit?
7 Should case report abstract also consist of background, aim of the study, methods, results and conclusions?
8 Can a passive participant receive a certificate of attendance?
You did it!
You’re finally here, safe and
sound in your hotel room. And what now? Well, the city (or I should rather say Tricity) offers you a number of opportunities. Whether you are the sightseeing kind of person, science freak or party lover - you will certainly find something just to meet your expectations.

And so if you are a history lover
the best place for you to visit would be the
Old Town. It is just 20 minutes walk from the
University or 5 minutes tram drive. The largest gothic church in Europe known as the Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, or St.Mary’s Church, rectangular (unlike in other cities in Poland) central place (called Długi Targ and Długa Street), a number of beautiful gates, innumerable churches, museums located in the most magnificent buildings in Gdansk such as the Arthur’s Court or the Crane – that is just to begin with ;) A place certainly worth visiting is the newly opened European Solidarity Centre by the shipyard. Provocative as it is from the outside (compared with the historic surrounding) it is incredibly well designed inside, being an example of the most creative modern architecture.

Another thing you mustn’t forget
is the fact that Gdansk is a seaside city!
Well, let’s face it – it is very unlikely that in April you will get temperatures high enough to sunbath between the lectures and workshops but a refreshing walk on the beach with a soft breeze on your cheeks is an experience to tick on your list, no doubt. If you have about an hour to spare you can take your walk to Sopot where you will find the longest pier in Europe. And if it’s already evening – stay in Sopot as it is said to be the best spot to party in the Tricity.

Gdynia – the youngest of the Tricity
metropolis and a must-see for any sea
lover. Built in the times of the Free City of Gdansk, when Poland was deprived of any functioning port it still focuses on this aspect. However, Gdynia successfully turns its industrial image into touristic attractions and is certainly one of the most rapidly developing cities in Poland, winning a number of competitions (both national and international) for the most appreciated places to live in, invest or study. Its inhabitants are local patriots and if you ask them – there’s
no place they’d rather be in ;)

We guarantee – once you
visit the Tricity you will certainly fall in love with it! What’s the secret behind that? Its diversity, open-mindedness, energy and the omnipresent idea of solidarity! That’s just a brief description – to find out more choose one of the topics.
