FEBS, EMBO and French Society for Biochemistry & Molecular Biology to hold joint conference in 2014

30.01.2013
The Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS), EMBO, and the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will hold a joint conference for the life sciences in 2014. The FEBS–EMBO 2014 Conference will take place from the 30 August to 4 September at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France.

The FEBS–EMBO 2014 Conference will be a unique international event that brings together many leading researchers to discuss the latest scientific findings in the life sciences. Scientists from across the world will be able to attend a jointly organized conference that offers unparalleled scope for the entire range of the molecular life sciences.

The conference will also celebrate the 50th anniversaries of FEBS and EMBO and the 100th anniversary of the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Israel Pecht, Secretary General of FEBS, commented: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome EMBO and the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology as partners for this life sciences conference that will take place in 2014. I believe the strengths of each organization will contribute to an outstanding event for all life scientists. It will also be an ideal opportunity to celebrate the achievements of all three organizations over the past decades.”

Maria Leptin, Director of EMBO, remarked: “High-calibre conferences where scientists of all ages have access to the very best speakers are an essential part of building a research community. Our partnership with FEBS and the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology for The FEBS–EMBO 2014 Conference will help to increase the impact of our efforts to create a research environment where scientists can achieve their best work.”

Frédéric Dardel, President of the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, added: “It is a privilege and an honour to be holding this special event for the life sciences in France and I look forward to welcoming the scientific community to Paris next year. We have the perfect partners and venue for this prestigious occasion.”

Further information about the joint conference will be made available at the 38th FEBS Congress in St Petersburg, Russia (6-11 July 2013) and The 5th EMBO Meeting in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (21-24 September 2013).

About EMBO

EMBO is an organization of more than 1500 leading researchers that promotes excellence in the life sciences.

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
