12 May 2016 - 16 May 2017, Salzburg, Austria
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.

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.
