One of the great successes of the ECTS scientific programme over time has been due to the principle of bridging the gaps between translational research and clinical application.
The Scientific Programme Committee has continued to develop the programme based on this successful format and has created a stimulating and varied agenda. With more than 500 abstracts regularly submitted over recent years ECTS congresses are renowned for their high scientific quality and we expect the Salzburg meeting to be no exception.
We have also noticed an increase in submissions from further afield which shows us that the ECTS audience is definitely spreading well beyond Europe! There will be plenty of opportunities for you to showcase and discuss your work, with a significant proportion of time set aside for oral and poster presentations, which will include poster tours and e-poster options.

Whilst technology-driven innovation has been a fundamental contributor to the prosperity of Europe, the recognition is emerging that design-driven, non-technological innovation is now also a route to competitiveness.
The economic significance of design is based on its potential as an enabler to create reliable, desirable, user-driven products and services that are ecologically and economically responsible.
Design is not just about the way things look, it is also about the way they work. Design creates value and contributes to competitiveness, prosperity, and well-being in Europe. That’s why EBN and its member EU|BICs strongly believe that Design for Innovation can contribute to:
In this context, the 25th EBN Congress intends to be a strong support to design-driven innovation across Europe and the Action Plan for Design-Driven Innovation, as well as to contribute to achieve the following Commission aims:

The “Cities of the Future 2016” Brokerage Event will bring together 300 researchers, industry professionals, government officials and policy makers from Europe and Turkey.
The event will target the following H2020 calls: -‘Smart and Sustainable Cities’ and ‘Energy Efficient Buildings’ - ‘Factories of The Future’ - ‘Sustainable Process Industries’ and ‘Circular Economy’ - ‘The European Green Vehicles Initiative’.
“Cities of the Future 2016” is meant as a wider concept that encompasses cities' overall energy and resource efficiency with profound economic, social and environmental impacts, resulting in a better quality of life.
In this context ‘Green Vehicles’ play an essential role, as well as further advances in ‘Factories of the Future’ or ‘Sustainable Process Industries’, for increased resource efficiency, new markets, and new jobs.
This event provides a unique opportunity to connect not only with Turkish and European researchers but also with highly qualified research-performing SMEs, making this event an excellent platform to expand networks and create new partnerships for the upcoming calls in Horizon 2020.
3-8 October 2016, Heraklion, Crete, Greece
The goal of this workshop is to foster scientific exchange between scientists working on the chromatin proteome, the dynamic behavior of proteins in the nucleus and the integration and visualization of protein and DNA networks.
There will be dedicated sessions on the proteomic analysis of histone modifications, of defined chromosomal domains and of functional proteomics together with sessions on quantitative proteomics, emerging technologies and bioinformatic analysis of large proteomic datasets and their visualization, with lectures given by leading researchers in the field. There will also be two poster sessions and several short oral presentations by junior researchers that will be selected from the abstracts.
In addition, major features of the workshop will be the one-on-one “Problem-Solving” sessions where junior researchers can “book” a meeting with one of the expert speakers of the workshop to discuss issues related to their own projects and the «Meet-the-experts-sessions» where three experts in each case will discuss in greater detail technical aspects and challenges in their areas of research. The workshop will also include talks on career development and funding opportunities for junior scientists in Europe and abroad.
The workshop will take place at the Aldemar Knossos Royal Resort and Conference Center in Hersonissos, near the city of Heraklion in Crete. The hotel is located 27km from the center of the cosmopolitan city of Heraklion and 25km from Heraklion International Airport which is very well connected to Athens and many European cities.
29 August - 1 September 2016, Amsterdam, Netherlands
The ICT4S conferences bring together leading researchers in ICT for Sustainability with government and industry representatives, including decision-makers with an interest in using ICT for sustainability, researchers focusing on ICT effects on sustainability and developers of sustainable ICT systems or applications.
29-31 August 2016, Wageningen, Netherlands
The International BioBased Economy Student SymbioSUM (IBBESS) is an entrepreneurial project carried out by a team of multidisciplinary students from Wageningen University and supported by the Centre for BioBased Economy (CBBE), the International Energy Agency (IEA) and EuropaBio, among other key players.
Check the website (www.ibbess.org) IBBESS is a platform intended to facilitate the connection of students to institutions, companies, politics and the general public that are involved in the biobased economy.
It is from students for students, our main target being MSc students from European universities with different backgrounds but a common interest for the Biobased Economy. The event will take place from 29th till 31st August 2016 at Wageningen University.
It will comprise two main features:
A Conference with expert lectures and discussions on the 3 different pillars (technology, economy and society) of biobased economy and a Think Tank workshop based on real-cases provided by companies and guided by professionals (Teach to Fish).
Besides Master students, phD and bachelor students can also apply for the full event. Other professionals can apply for attending the Conference part.
27-30 August 2016, Heidelberg, Germany
This conference has played a very important role in the transcription field over the past 20 years, being both very well attended and generating highly interactive discussions.
The EMBL Transcription and Chromatin meeting has a long-standing tradition in shaping the field of transcriptional regulation.
The meeting brings together leading experts covering all aspects of transcription from cis-regulatory function, long range regulation, 3-dimensional looping, the basal transcriptional machinery, RNA polymerase regulation and function, nucleosome positioning, chromatin modifications, chromatin remodelling, and epigenetic inheritance of transcriptional silencing.
The meeting contains many talks selected from the abstracts that are interspersed with invited speakers, discussing the latest breakthroughs in transcriptional regulation.
21-25 August 2016, Hinxton, Cambridge, United Kingdom
This is a uniquely fascinating time in human genetics and genomics, as the field moves beyond the cataloguing of associated variation towards fundamental biological inference and translational implementation.
The programme will cover a range of topics including our current understanding of the genomics of rare and complex human diseases. There will be sessions addressing gene regulation and functional analysis.
The latest advances in sequencing technology and the future of whole genome and clinical sequencing will also be discussed. The schedule is highly interactive with presentations by the tutors and students on cutting-edge topics in human genomics.
The summer school is more akin to a ‘science summer camp’ for graduate students with discussions and debates on the future of human genomics. A unique feature is the one-to-one mentoring on all aspects of genomics, including advice on publishing and pursuing an academic research career.
