Chemistry Education 2018 spreads an extensive range of critically important sessions from basic research to recent innovations. The theme: “Emerging Trends, Advancements and Applications in Chemistry Education” is designed for professionals at all levels and career phases of the Chemical industry, who want to improve their understanding of what will drive and shape the future of the market. It will bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, informal science, and governmental and non-governmental agencies to address practical and theoretical issues related to the teaching and learning of chemistry relevant to a variety of educational contexts and levels. As is expected for the very highly regarded EuroSciCon Conferences, presented work is intended to be current and unpublished, representing the cutting-edge of research and practice in this field. The conference format includes invited plenary sessions, semi-structured poster sessions, and free time to interact and network with conferees. Several features of the conference create an atmosphere that is intended to invigorate professional connections and promote advancement of the field: daily forums with intense intellectual engagement, off-the-record discussion of unpublished work, free afternoons in an idyllic setting, common meals and dormitory accommodations, and a limit on participation.


28–31 August 2018 AHR 2018 Symposium

Paris, France

The AHR 2018 Symposium, which is being held for the first time in Paris, will bring together world-renowned scientists in integrated program to share/discuss the latest knowledge on the role of the aromatic hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) in a wide rage of fields. AHR, recognized as a transcription factor activated by many pollutants, responsible for the induction of xenobiotic metabolism enzymes, detects many anthropogenic ligands for some carcinogens or endocrine disrupters. More recently, other functions of this fascinating protein have been described (immune responses, hormonal signaling, cell cycle progression, oxidative stress, inflammation, differentiation, development, apoptosis) as well as new ligands (including endogenous ones) That some of the toxic effects described for environmental molecules could result from endogenous perturbation.

The International Journal of Molecular Sciences – IJMS (ISSN 1422-0067), is currently running a Special Issue entitled "Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor in Biology and Toxicology", edited by the organization committee member Prof. Dr. Charlotte Esser (IUF, Düsseldorf, Germany). We invite you to contribute a full research paper or review article for peer-review and possible publication in this Special Issue. In case you are interested to publish your work and/or the work presented at this meeting in the special issue, please refer to the following web page for further information: http://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/special_issues/AHR.

The deadline for submission is on 31 October 2018.

We invite you to join us at the ECI 2018 in Amsterdam and discuss the latest developments in immunological research and clinical therapy. In line with the theme of Building Bridges, sessions will highlight new immunological discoveries with diagnostic or therapeutic promise. In addition, we will connect to other disciplines, like systems biology, multidimensional imaging, and microbiomics to stimulate novel directions of immunological research and therapy. Please, save the date – September 2-5, 2018. We hope to welcome you in Amsterdam!


9–13 September 2018 29th Annual Conference of the European Society for Biomaterials

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.

23–27 September 2018 27th International tRNA Conference

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.
