The joint meeting ECBS & ICBS 2015 brings together chemical biology researchers from screening and drug discovery, systems biology and therapeutic innovation.
It builds on the success at the 3rd ICBS 2014 in San Francisco and the 3rd ECBS 2012 in Vienna and will enable the exchange of research and professional collaboration and drive important discoveries in chemical biology worldwide.
We anticipate more than 300 participants and 40 speakers from all around the world at this conference, which is a joint event of EU-OPENSCREEN, ICBS and EFMC.
Session topics: - Chemoproteomics - Epigenetics - Conjugates for targeted delivery - Antiinfectives - Cheminformatics & Chemical Systems Biology - Molecular Imaging - Probing the structure and function of PTMs
8-9 October 2015, Ankara
The European Commission and a group of six leading Turkish universities are organising a Conference on the Turkish Universities in the European Research Area in Ankara on 8 October 2015.
The aim of the Conference is to bring Turkish universities more on the European scientific map by making them familiar with the European Research Area (ERA) priority actions and discussing with them how to comply with these principles which in turn will strengthen the research and innovation capacity at national level and facilitate cooperation with EU research and innovation entities under the Union's research and innovation programme 'Horizon 2020'.
The second day of the Conference will focus on research and innovation opportunities under the Union's framework programme Horizon 2020. Cooperation on energy is high on the agenda amongst others on Energy, ICT and Health topics.

Sleep and circadian rhythms regulate all aspects of brain function. Co-chaired by Russell Foster (University of Oxford, UK) and Joseph Takahashi (University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, USA), the focus of this Brain Conference will be on the molecular, cellular and neural networks that underlie the generation and regulation of sleep and circadian rhythms; by what means these biological processes interact and influence normal brain function and behaviour; and how these systems influence the development and state of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
Topics for the conference will include:
The Brain Conferences are organised by the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS, the major neuroscience association in Europe) in partnership with The Brain Prize. They bring together outstanding researchers in key broadly defined areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.

On 8 October 2015 the European Commission, DG Research and Innovation in close cooperation with the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR) is organising a conference on "Sustainable Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in the Bioeconomy - A Challenge for Europe” in Brussels, in the European Commission's Charlemagne Building.
This conference is expected to be a cornerstone in the broader foresight process, initiated by the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR) in 2006, aimed at identifying principles which would enable the primary production sectors (agriculture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture) to cope with a range of complex and interlinked challenges over the next 30-40 years. The event will include a broad debate, based on the findings of the work carried out by the Fourth Foresight Expert Group (FEG4) aimed at reaching a common understanding on the state of the bioeconomy and principles leading to a sustainable bioeconomy. With an emphasis on possible future scenarios, the exercise aims to explore the possible outcomes of developing the paradigm of the bioeconomy, with the fundamental constraint of sustainability. The debate should help to set the research and innovation agenda, establish priorities, and provide a firm footing for future policy development.
6-7 October 2015, Brussels, Belgium
