5–7 February 2020 Viruses 2020 - Novel Concepts in Virology

Barcelona, Spain

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we announce the conference Viruses 2020 - Novel Concepts in Virology to be held in Barcelona, Spain, 5-7 February 2020.

Because of their global impact on human, animal, and plant health and their utility as tractable model systems, viruses continue to play a central role in all aspects of biomedical research, ranging from molecular and cell biology, structural biology, and immunology to evolution, epidemiology, and bioinformatics. This conference will bring together leading virologists from around the world and across the broad field of virology to share results of their recent studies. Meeting participants will have the opportunity to present posters and short talks on their work and discuss their research in a stimulating and collegial environment.

The conference is sponsored by MDPI, the publisher of the open-access journal Viruses and follows the very successful meetings Viruses 2016 - At the Forefront of Virus-Host Interactions held in January 2016 in Basel, Switzerland and Viruses 2018 - Breakthroughs in Viral Replication, held in February 2018 in Barcelona.

We very much look forward to seeing you at this exciting meeting in Barcelona.

Dr. Eric O. Freed and Dr. Albert Bosch
Viruses 2020 Chairs

24–27 February 2020 2nd Nuclear Receptors Conference

Nassau, Bahamas

Nuclear Receptors are, physiologically and pharmacologically, a critical superfamily of transcription factors. They drive key processes at every stage from development and reproduction to ageing and cancer. They are critical determinants of everyday health via their roles in metabolism and circadian rhythms. Nuclear receptors allow external factors to influence cellular pathways and the fact that many bind and are activated by small molecules means they represent highly druggable targets; currently, 13% of FDA-approved drugs target nuclear receptors. The meeting aims to address the new roles and novel crosstalk mechanisms that are emerging for many of the 48 human nuclear receptors, in health and disease.
Please visit the conference webpage for the full speaker list and talk titles.

26–28 February 2020 Polymer Connect, Polymer Science and Composite Materials Conference

Lisbon, Portugal

Polymers and Composites are at the forefront of much of the current technological developments improving healthcare and delivery new industrial products, emerging technologies such as additive manufacturing, smart and intelligent materials, biopolymers and biocomposites, reducing carbon footprints of automobiles and aircraft, enhancing food quality and drug delivery systems. However plastics are seen as one of the current environmental concerns with the careless disposal of plastic waste in the oceans and the widespread pollution with microplastics. These concerns are widely felt in Portugal as a Maritime Nation with an excellent record of environmental concerns most notably with over 50% of the energy production coming from renewable sources (International Energy Agency). We have selected key researchers in each of these challenging areas to deliver the state of the art through the series of keynote and invited lectures. This is a great opportunity to hear about the energing research in these fields across the world and a perfect platform for you to present and discuss your own research work. I encourage you to submit your work for presentation, there will be special networking opportunities for early career researchers and students

26–29 May 2020 International Symposium on Cyclodextrins in 2020 (ICS 2020)

Messina, Italy

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my great pleasure to announce the 20th International Cyclodextrin Symposium (ICS2020).

ICS2020 will be held during May 26-29, 2020 at Giardini Naxos (Messina, ITALY) at UNAHOTELS Naxos Beach Sicilia and will be jointly organized by the National Council of Research (CNR) and the University of Messina, Italy. The first ICS was held in Budapest, Hungary in 1981, and organized by Prof. J. Szejtli. The 13th ICS was held in Turin, Italy, in 2006 and was organized by Prof. F. Trotta. Hence, ICS2020 will be the second symposium of this series hosted in Italy. This symposium follows the 19th ICS held on April 2018 in Tokyo, Japan.

All scientists belonging to the international academic community and to the industrial network interested in the cyclodextrin (CD) science are warmly invited.

We are planning different sections ranging from the fundamentals of various aspects of the cyclodextrins chemistry, physics and materials technology to the applications in food, environmental, pharmaceutical and life sciences, opening a window on last progresses on supramolecules, polymers and nanoconstructs based on CD. The ICS2020 will provide the chance for scientists working in different field of cyclodextrin research to meet and learn from each other, thus enhancing collaborations and scientific contacts.

We envisaged to include in the ICS 2020 program plenary lectures, key-notes, oral and poster presentations, dealing with the above-mentioned subjects. In this regard, as opening plenary speaker, we will have the honor to host the Nobel Laureate 2016 for Chemistry, Sir James Fraser Stoddart, which has already confirmed his presence with a lecture on the following theme: “Cyclodextrin-Based Molecular-Organic Frameworks : Emergence Opens Up a Whole New World of Wonders”.

We are also planning different reduction/and or prizes for young scientists and students.

Looking forward to see you at Giardini Naxos (Messina) on May 2020


27–30 August 2020 14th European Nitrogen Fixation Conference (ENFC)

Naples, Italy

The European Nitrogen Fixation Conference (ENFC) is held since 1994 and its organization is alternated between the North and South of Europe. The program combines classical topics within the Biological Nitrogen Fixation (BNF) field (e.g. nitrogenase biochemistry, evolution of symbiosis, signal transduction, nodule development and functioning, regulation of N2 fixation in soil and aquatic free-living microorganisms) with highly relevant and timely topics for modern society (e.g. climate change, present and future use of BNF in agriculture). The more recent advancements of synthetic biology approaches aimed to transfer BNF capability to cereal crops and to the rewiring of free living bacteria to secrete ammonium will be presented and discussed. Special emphasis will be given to environmental implications of these new BNF developing tools in order to establish a dialog between scientists involved in soil and marine management and the BNF community. BNF-based approaches to sustain agricultural productivity in sub-arid and arid conditions, as for instance those faced in the Southern Mediterranean area will be also presented.

By tradition support enabling the participation of young people has been maintained ever since and the organizing committee will deploy all possible efforts to promote the attending of young scientists at the conference in Naples.
