The 12th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy 2018)
2018-03-22 to 2018-03-25
Warsaw, Poland

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are proud to announce that the 12th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy) will take place in Warsaw, Poland on March 22-25, 2018.

In recent years the field of neurology has witnessed enormous growth in clinical and basic data. Conferences are more informative but there is often only limited time for thorough discussions. Consequently a gap appears between the expansion of knowledge and its dissemination and use. CONy provides a platform for international experts to discuss and compare experiences.

The core of the CONy Congress are the debates which enable participants to discuss unresolved issues with leading world experts. The Congress aims at providing the most recent data armoring the clinician with reliable, up-to-date scientific information, helping in everyday patient care.
We cordially invite you to join us in the beautiful city of Warsaw!

29th Annual Conference of the European Society for Biomaterials
2018-09-09 to 2018-09-13
Maastricht, The Netherlands

The theme of this year’s conference is “Materials for Life,” which expresses the challenge the field of biomaterials is currently facing: to provide effective and affordable biomaterials-based methods to repair and regenerate damaged and diseased tissues and organs. This challenge can only be overcome by converging breakthrough developments from the fields of chemistry, physics, materials science, biology and engineering to address real clinical needs, while also considering the translational pathway from bench to bedside.

Annual ESB conferences are an ideal setting for this endeavor. For 5 days, scientists, clinicians and industrialists with different backgrounds and expertise convene to synergistically advance the field of biomaterials by presenting their latest research, attending stimulating workshops and symposia and having lively discussions during breaks and social events. We are confident that Maastricht will encourage these activities in the best possible manner and we are happy to announce that four top scientists in the field, Dr. Viola Vogel, Dr. David Grainger, Dr. Katarina Le Blanc and Dr. Matthew Dalby have agreed to give a plenary lecture at the conference. link

27th International tRNA Conference
2018-09-23 to 2018-09-27
Strasbourg, France
The 27th International tRNA Conference “tRNA at the crossroad” will bring together researchers from around the world studying the many aspects of tRNA biology.
Initiated in 1969 in Cambridge, this series of congresses is one of the most ancient and uninterrupted series of international conference in biology. The last meeting, held on Jeju island, Korea in 2016, was a real success. 38 years after hosting the 9th edition of this congress, Strasbourg is proud to host again the tRNA conference.
As emphasized at recent tRNA conferences, tRNA biology continuously reveals new surprising findings. tRNA biology is undoubtedly at a crossroad. Novel technologies allow to address new biological questions and to identify new functions. tRNA biology becomes essential to understand translation regulation, for synthetic biology, for systems biology or to understand the world of small RNAs. Now, more than ever, tRNA biology is also of major societal importance, as the number of diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer, myopathies, related to tRNA dysfunctions is regularly growing. link
