Natural Products & Biocontrol 2014
24-26 September 2014, Perpignan, France
The activity of biocontrol products depend on numerous biotic interactions implying secondary metabolisms. The Natural Products and Biocontrol Congress covers the whole research about the natural components involved in biocontrol processes.
The natural compounds involved in interactions are exogene to the plant (active components of a vegetal extract, microbial metabolite, pheromons) or endogene (produced by a plant in response of an elicitor). Therefore the Congress also covers the research in the vegetal response to elicitors and phytostimulus. It is opened to scientists, technicians, industrials whose research are centred on biocontrol and natural products. The main points of the event open conferences, scientific presentations (spoken or displayed), one to one , discussions.
ACDC – the Advanced Cyber Defence Centre –participates in Internet Security Days 2014
24-25 September 2014, Brühl, Germany
ACDC is an important initiative for the cyber security strategy for the EU. The project offers a complete range of services to enhance cyber security that will go from the recognition of "malware" to prevention across networks, fixed and mobile devices.
Within the ISD2014, ACDC will present its results and will launch the online ACDC community portal for all companies joining ACDC. You are invited to join for a full update of the project results and a practical session to interact with the ACDC portal.
ExpeER International Conference 2014
24-25 September 2014, Paris
The Earth's rapidly changing environment is putting critical ecosystem services at risk. There are many challenges involved in understanding global environmental changes, and in providing societies with the policy-relevant knowledge base to deal with them. These challenges will reach across many aspects of scientific endeavour.
In this context the Experimentation in Ecosystem Research conference will provide a platform for discussions on cutting-edge technological tools, large-scale integrative experimental design, technical constraints, data access and last but not least ecosystem modelling. The conference will attract speakers and delegates from around the world and will offer opportunities to reinforce global cooperation. Main topics Grand challenges: With the current set of Experimental Research infrastructures in ecosystem science, do we have the capacity to tackle the grand challenges of today and tomorrow? In vitro and in natura : How realistic are they, and how they can be better linked? Technologies: Which emerging technologies could enhance (or are needed for) the performance and services offered by our RIs? Data: Towards an e-infrastructure for ecosystem research - challenges and opportunities Modelling: How accurate is our capacity to forecast and upscale, and what is missing? How can we communicate uncertainty? How do we strike the right balance between modelling and experiments?
CO2-based Chemicals Production using Industrial Biotechnology
24 September 2014, Lyon, France
The BIO-TIC project has organised this workshop with the aim to identify technological, non-technological and market hurdles for the uptake of industrial biotechnology in CO2 based chemicals production and develop recommendations and solutions to overcome the identified hurdles. Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry and further build on the roadmaps.
CO2 is increasingly being considered by many as a commodity rather than a waste product. The largest current use for CO2 is currently in enhanced oil recovery. However, CO2 holds great potential as a feedstock for chemicals production using IB processes, especially in the EU where the research base is strong and where there is an abundance of CO2 available. CO2 is not part of the food chain so avoids any issues over food v fuel. However, public perception, and logistical and cost challenges in terms of CO2 transport and distribution could hamper the potential of CO2 to be used for chemicals and substantial R&D is needed to bring many opportunities to fruition.

1st International Conference on Engineering, Science & Technology Innovation (ICESTI 2014)
10-13 September 2014, Kuta – Bali, Indonesia
ICESTI 2014 will provide a forum for accessing the most up-to-date and authoritative knowledge from both industrial and academic worlds, sharing best practice in the field of Engineering, Science, and Technology towards sustainable development.
The conference will provide an opportunity to highlight recent developments and to identify emerging and future areas of growth in these exciting fields. The first event of this conference series (ICESTI 2014) will be held in Bali, Indonesia, on 10-13 September 2014. ICESTI organizing committee are inviting submissions from scientists, academicians and industry practitioners worldwide.
Virtual Physiological Human Conference 2014
9-12 September 2014, Trondheim, Norway
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is very pleased to host the 3rd VPH conference by the Virtual Physiological Human Institute. This biannual conference series grew out of the FP7 Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence. It has become one of the major instruments for maintaining the coherence and momentum of the highly multidisciplinary VPH community.
The members of the VPH community subscribe to the view that substantially improved healthcare can only be achieved through converged efforts of the life sciences, the mathematical sciences and engineering. On 14 January 2014 in Strasbourg, Members of the European Parliament specifically endorsed the work of the VPH Institute by recognising the role of the VPH initiative towards improving healthcare in their eHealth Action Plan 2012-2020. VPH2014 participants may thus enjoy the rare claim that they contribute to an initiative that has earned the support of the elected representatives of EU citizens and is directly supported in EU policy.
