Call for Abstracts and Registration for The EMBO Meeting 2010

12.04.2010
  • 4 to 7 September, Palau de Congressos, Barcelona
  • More than 120 leading researchers deliver a diverse scientific programme
  • Key themes include evolution of animal forms, systems biology & functional genomics, and signalling in development
  • 15 May deadline: abstract submission AND discounted early registration

More than 120 leading researchers from across the molecular life sciences will speak at The EMBO Meeting 2010 - the second annual life sciences conference to be organized by the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and held in Barcelona from 4 - 7 September 2010.

Confirmed special lecturers and keynote speakers include:

- Elizabeth Blackburn - Roles of telomeres & telemorase in health & disease
- Richard Losick - Stochasticity & cell fate
- Frans de Waal - Prosocial primates: Empathy, fairness & cooperation
- Cliff Tabin - Development & evolution of vertebrate morphology
- Austin Smith & Michel Haïssaguerre - winners of the 2010 Louis-Jeantet Prize for Medicine

The EMBO Meeting 2010 advances the life sciences through broad programmes reflecting the concepts of modern biological research. It follows on from former ELSO meetings to provide an annual life sciences forum for scientific exchange in Europe.

Luis Serrano (Center for Genomic Regulation, Barcelona) and Denis Duboule (University of Geneva) are co-organizers of the scientific programme that spans the life science disciplines with keynote addresses and plenary sessions focused on three themes:

- Evolution of animal forms - Detlev Arendt, Alejandro Sánchez Alvarado, Marie-Anne Félix, Shigeru Kuratani

- Systems biology & functional genomics - Marc Vidal, Edward (Eddy) Rubin, Ron Weiss, Olivier Voinnet

- Signalling in development - Irma Thesleff, Kathryn Anderson, Christof Niehrs, Sarah E Millar

Workshops and daily poster sessions will extend the plenary themes and address additional current topics, ensuring a blend of subjects relevant to present-day molecular biology. Following is a selection of workshops and organizers:

- Dynamics of chromosome organization - Susan Gasser & Wendy Bickmore
- Cellular tomography - Ohad Medalia & Achilleas Frangakis
- Cancer genomics & stem cells - María Blasco & Mariano Barbacid
- Next generation sequencing: technologies & biological insights - Thomas Lemberger

- Infection & autophagy - Ari Helenius & Sharon Tooze

Special sessions include:

- Science & Society
How a virus becomes a global scare - pandemics and the public health system Albert Osterhaus, Erasmus Medical Centre, Rotterdam Barbara Bannister, Consultant Advisor in Pandemic Flu Planning, London
- Women in Science
The Sex of the Brain: two solutions to the same problem?
Richard Haier, University of California, Irvine
Submit abstracts and register by 15 May 2010
Scientists are invited to submit abstracts and register for early-bird discounts. Conference participants will come from Europe and worldwide to meet at the Palau de Congressos convention centre in Barcelona from 4 - 7 September 2010. Sponsored symposia and industry exhibits, career forums and skill development workshops, networking events, prizes and award ceremonies will complement the scientific programme.

Further information and online submission and registration can be found at the conference website: www.the-embo-meeting.org. Onsite childcare is available for attendees with young families.

A grant from the Robert Bosch Stiftung supports the participation of women at The EMBO Meeting 2010 as speakers and participants in the scientific programme and career day activities and for their use of onsite childcare facilities.

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 1,400 today. Fifty-three scientists from the EMBO membership have received the Nobel Prize. Four leading peer-reviewed journals - The EMBO Journal, EMBO reports, Molecular Systems Biology and EMBO Molecular Medicine - span a broad spectrum of topics of molecular biology and reflect how science is shaping the world. 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: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...

Im Focus: Quantum-physical Model System

Computer-assisted methods aid Heidelberg physicists in reproducing experiment with ultracold atoms

Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...

Im Focus: Glacier bacteria’s contribution to carbon cycling

Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.

A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
