Counting down to FEBS-EMBO 2014 in Paris, France

29.07.2014

With thirty days to go and almost 2500 registered participants, the final preparations for the FEBS-EMBO 2014 Conference are well underway.

The event, a joint venture between the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS), EMBO, and the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SFBBM), will take place from Saturday, 30 August to Thursday, 4 September at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France.

The FEBS-EMBO 2014 Conference is the largest meeting for the life sciences in Europe this year. It features more than one hundred lectures, workshops and symposia on established and emerging areas of research. The conference will celebrate the 50th anniversaries of FEBS and EMBO and the centennial of the SFBBM.

Journalists and science writers will have abundant opportunities to learn about the latest research from leading scientists:

The conference also features topics at the intersection of science and society. Thomas Stocker of the University of Bern will talk about climate change, and Curt Rice of the Arctic University of Norway will discuss how implicit bias holds women back in their careers. New trends in scientific policy in Europe related to big data is a topic of the Science & Society Round Table.

Online press registration and more information for journalists are available at http://www.febs-embo2014.org/media/media-registration/46. The Abstract Book will be emailed to registered participants and journalists two weeks before the conference starts. Interview opportunities can be arranged prior to the conference or on site, beginning on Saturday evening after the opening address.

About EMBO
EMBO is an organization of more than 1600 leading researchers that promotes excellence in the life sciences. The major goals of the organization are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a European research environment where scientists can achieve their best work. For more information: www.embo.org

About FEBS
Founded on 1st January 1964, The Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) is one of Europe's largest organizations in the molecular life sciences, with over 36,000 members across more than 35 national biochemistry and molecular biology societies (its 'Constituent Societies') in Europe and neighboring regions. As a charitable organization, FEBS promotes and supports the molecular life sciences in various ways – from offering advanced courses and different types of research fellowships to publishing journals. For more information: www.febs.org

About SFBBM
The French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology develops and promotes Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in research and teaching, both in universities and centers of research as well as industry. Members of the organization are involved in learned societies devoted to biochemistry at the international level. The French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, which was founded in 1914, has been a member of FEBS since 1964. For more information: www.sfbbm.fr

Im Focus: Worldwide Success of Tyrolean Wastewater Treatment Technology

A biological and energy-efficient process, developed and patented by the University of Innsbruck, converts nitrogen compounds in wastewater treatment facilities into harmless atmospheric nitrogen gas. This innovative technology is now being refined and marketed jointly with the United States’ DC Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water). The largest DEMON®-system in a wastewater treatment plant is currently being built in Washington, DC.

The DEMON®-system was developed and patented by the University of Innsbruck 11 years ago. Today this successful technology has been implemented in about 70...

Im Focus: Computational high-throughput screening finds hard magnets containing less rare earth elements

Permanent magnets are very important for technologies of the future like electromobility and renewable energy, and rare earth elements (REE) are necessary for their manufacture. The Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM in Freiburg, Germany, has now succeeded in identifying promising approaches and materials for new permanent magnets through use of an in-house simulation process based on high-throughput screening (HTS). The team was able to improve magnetic properties this way and at the same time replaced REE with elements that are less expensive and readily available. The results were published in the online technical journal “Scientific Reports”.

The starting point for IWM researchers Wolfgang Körner, Georg Krugel, and Christian Elsässer was a neodymium-iron-nitrogen compound based on a type of...

Im Focus: Atomic precision: technologies for the next-but-one generation of microchips

In the Beyond EUV project, the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen and for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena are developing key technologies for the manufacture of a new generation of microchips using EUV radiation at a wavelength of 6.7 nm. The resulting structures are barely thicker than single atoms, and they make it possible to produce extremely integrated circuits for such items as wearables or mind-controlled prosthetic limbs.

In 1965 Gordon Moore formulated the law that came to be named after him, which states that the complexity of integrated circuits doubles every one to two...

Im Focus: Researchers demonstrate size quantization of Dirac fermions in graphene

Characterization of high-quality material reveals important details relevant to next generation nanoelectronic devices

Quantum mechanics is the field of physics governing the behavior of things on atomic scales, where things work very differently from our everyday world.

Im Focus: Graphene: A quantum of current

When current comes in discrete packages: Viennese scientists unravel the quantum properties of the carbon material graphene

In 2010 the Nobel Prize in physics was awarded for the discovery of the exceptional material graphene, which consists of a single layer of carbon atoms...
