Call for Abstracts and Registration for The EMBO Meeting 2009

· Leading researchers to speak in scientific programme
· 25 April deadline: abstract submission AND discounted early registration
· Onsite childcare available for delegates with young families

More than 120 researchers will speak at The EMBO Meeting 2009 - the first annual life sciences conference to be organized by the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and held in Amsterdam from 29 August to 1 September 2009.

The EMBO Meeting 2009 advances the life sciences through broad programmes reflecting the concepts and high-resolution approaches of modern biological research. It follows on from former ELSO meetings to provide an annual life sciences forum for scientific exchange in Europe.

The deadline for abstract submission and discounted early registration for The EMBO Meeting 2009 is 25 April. Online submission and registration can be found at the conference website: For delegates with young families, onsite childcare will be available thanks to a New Scholars' Grant from The Elsevier Foundation.

"EMBO is an established leader in stimulating and supporting scientific exchange across borders," said Hermann Bujard, EMBO Director. "The EMBO Meeting is an exciting opportunity for scientists, young and old, to come together to share the latest science, exchange ideas, forge new collaborations and develop new research projects."

Boasting a speaker faculty of more than 120 well-known names in molecular life sciences, The EMBO Meeting 2009 offers a programme that spans the life science disciplines with keynote addresses and plenary sessions focused on three themes: stem cells, signalling pathways and chromosome dynamics. Workshops and poster sessions will further extend these themes and address additional current topics, ensuring a blend of subjects relevant to present-day molecular biology.

Confirmed speakers include:

§ Rudolf Jaenisch - Stem cells, pluripotency & nuclear reprogramming

§ Svante Pääbo - Neanderthal genomics

§ Martin Rees - From 'Big Bang' to biosphere: a cosmic perspective (special 'non-life science' lecture)

§ Axel Ullrich - From Gene to Therapy: OncoGenomics-based cancer drug development

§ Shinya Yamanaka - iPS cells: perspective & challenge

§ Harald zur Hausen - Infections & human cancers: facts & perspectives

Conference participants are expected to come from Europe and worldwide to meet at the Amsterdam RAI convention centre from 29 August to 1 September 2009. Sponsored symposia and industry exhibits, career forums and skill development workshops, networking events, prizes and award ceremonies will complement the scientific programme.

About EMBO
The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) promotes excellence in molecular life sciences in Europe by recognizing and fostering talented scientists. Since 1964, leading scientists are elected annually to become EMBO Members based on proven excellence in research. Members number more than 1300 today. Forty-eight scientists from the EMBO membership have received the Nobel Prize.

Leading peer-reviewed journals - The EMBO Journal, EMBO reports and Molecular Systems Biology - span a broad spectrum of topics of molecular biology and reflect how science is shaping the world. A new journal, EMBO Molecular Medicine, publishes original research offering molecular insight into the cellular and systemic processes underlying human disease.

EMBO funding, training and networking activities impact thousands of scientists every year, promoting collaboration in all areas of molecular biology - within its 27 member states, in Europe and neighbouring countries, and worldwide.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
