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.

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.

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.
10-12 May 2016, Barcelona, Spain
The 2nd European Stroke Conference (ESOC 2016) features a comprehensive series of keynote lectures, symposia, teaching courses and various workshops, covering the entire field of stroke management, prevention and recovery.
Participants will benefit from the unique opportunity to network with colleagues from around the world, attend a variety of interactive educational sessions, and learn about the latest scientific research and developments from leading international speakers, all in a stimulating environment.
10-12 May 2016, Vietnam
The ASEAN-EU STI Days bring together researchers, scientists, science policy makers, innovative companies, and other stakeholders from ASEAN and EU countries for a yearly three-day conference on science, technology, and innovation issues and bi-regional co-operation in these fields.
The ASEAN‐EU Science, Technology and Innovation Days (STI Days) are initiated by SEA‐EU‐NET as a biregional forum for cooperation activities between Europe and Southeast Asia. The STI Days are open to all actors and stakeholders in the fields of research, development and innovations, thus giving them the opportunity to build their network, discuss, and engage in exchanging on topics of common interest and explore perspectives for new cooperation.
A new philosophy will be behind the STI Days for 2016—strong focus on academic/industry collaboration.
The number of scientific workshops and expert sessions on various topics – like infectious diseases, water, food, energy nexus, metrology, ASEAN Economic Community and innovation – is expected to amount to 15 and the number of participants ranges between 300-400, mainly from Southeast Asia and Europe.
The STI Days are an ideal occasion for networking and exchange of ideas in thematic areas like Health, Environment, Water, Food Security & Safety or Innovation.
Location of STI Days: Melia Hotel, Hanoi, Vietnam
10-11 May 2016, Sophia Antipolis, France
On 10-11 May 2016 in its Headquarters in Sophia Antipolis, ETSI will hold a workshop on the subject “From Research To Standardization” in the context of the EU's H2020 programme.
The workshop will support researchers in disseminating and exploiting their results through ICT standardisation. It serves as a platform for research consortia to be informed about standardisation plans and to address a wider community to find supporters and allies.
10-11 May 2016, Brussels
Involving 54 months of laboratory, field experiments and mathematical modelling, 22 research groups in 15 countries (and 2 continents), the AMIGA project is quite possibly the largest ever concerted effort to provide stakeholders, academia and society at large with scientifically sound results on the sustainability and practical indications on environmental risk assessment for genetically modified plants.
This final conference will present the results of the project and its recommendations for policy making. The conference is expected to gather stakeholders from different areas of expertise, including scientists, policy makers and other relevant representatives of the sector.
