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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
