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.
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.

The 1st Conference on Social Impact of Science (SIS2016) will provide a framework where research groups from diverse contexts and domains will be able to discuss these existing good practices, as well as the processes for further improvement and innovation.
Furthermore, SIS2016 will generate new bonds between the different actors involved in this initiative including researchers, scientific agencies, science stakeholders and civil society
Analysing, communicating and improving social impact is one of the most pressing demands to all scientific fields.
Most research groups are willing to assume this task, which is still very difficult due to the lack of indicators, repositories and experiences. Nevertheless, there are some scientific domains where significant steps have been already taken.
There are also some countries where universities and science agencies are very advanced in the construction of these indicators.
24-26 July 2016, Heidelberg, Germany
Microfluidics is a quickly growing, highly interdisciplinary field at the interface of physics, engineering, chemistry and biology.
Over the past years microfluidic approaches have been used for a variety of applications, including chemical synthesis, nucleotide sequencing, functional genomics and single molecule/ single cell/ single organism studies.
The EMBL Microfluidics Conference 2016 aims to bring together top researchers in the field and to spark scientific exchange, also across different disciplines.
