Keystone Symposia: Cell Death Signaling in Cancer and the Immune System
28 October - 1 November 2014, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Cellular decisions to live or die are fundamental to development and adult homeostasis, playing roles in a wide variety of physiological and pathological processes. These include cancer, degenerative disease, innate and adaptive immunity, ischemia-reperfusion injury, and infectious disease. As the study of cell death moves beyond the central mechanisms of apoptosis to wider issues of regulation and other forms of cell death, this vibrant area of research widens its influence and importance for human health and disease.
We strongly encourage students and postdoctoral fellows submit an abstract and apply for Scholarship and Underrepresented Trainee Scholarship opportunities. Please visit our website for eligibility and application criteria. Submitting an abstract enables maximum participation in the meeting through presentation in a poster session. Abstracts submitted by the deadline also afford consideration for short talk presentation in either a plenary session or a workshop.
8th Alpine Meeting: Current & Future challenges of oncology drug development
29-31 October 2014, Buchen/Innsbruck, Austria

European Utility Week 2014
4-6 November 2014, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
European Utility Week 2014, an essential 3 days for every smart utility professional! Never has the well worn saying "By the industry for the industry" been more applicable. Since the record-breaking 2013 edition, we have been in close consultation with existing and new stakeholders to bring you a completely re-engineered event programme, including new formats amongst tried and tested formulas with content for all levels dealing with the here and now and the challenges of the future. Innovation will be at the forefront of the 3 days with showcasing of projects and new solutions.
The climate change challenge: the outcome of the IPCC 5th assessment report
4 November 2014, Brussels
How will EU society, and indeed individual EU citizens, react, adapt and generally cope with the impacts of the coming changes to the world’s climate? What can its elected representatives and policy-makers do on the world stage?
Answers to such questions will be outlined in a special event at the European Parliament (EP) as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) presents the latest findings from its 5th Assessment Report (AR5). The IPCC’s Chairman, Dr Rajendra Pachauri, will present the key findings from the IPCC’s report, hot off the press, and take part in a Q&A session at the European Parliament to debate the report’s contents.
The event, organised by the European Commission in partnership with the EP’s own Scientific Foresight Unit, gives the first chance for EU citizens, legislators and policy-makers to discuss the contents of the AR5 at the heart of European government.
It is not possible to attend the event but you can follow it online: http://www.europarl.europa.eu/ep-live/en/committees/video?event=20141104-1700-COMMITTEE-STOA and send your questions via Twitter using these hashtags: #TalkClimate #ipccEP

TIPS workshop “From research to market - key factors on innovation”
30 July 2014, Rome, Italy
The aim of the workshop is to present the TIPS findings on the exploitation approaches of EU-funded project and discuss the process “from research to innovation”. A number of case studies, namely recently completed EU-funded projects whose results have been exploited or their exploitation has been initiated, will also be highlighted.
The 2014 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation - HPCS 2014
21-25 July 2014, Bologna (Italy)
The HPCS 14 conference is to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in high performance and large scale computing systems, their use in modeling and simulation, their design, performance and use, and their impact. In Cooperation with the ACM, IEEE, IFIP.
Introduction to Aircraft Aeroelasticity and Loads - 5 Day Course
14-18 July 2014, Bristol (UK)
The course is being run as part of the EU funded ALPES (Aircraft Loads Prediction using Enhanced Simulation) Marie-Curie Initial Training Network.
- To introduce the main concepts of Aeroelasticity and Loads, and the multi-disciplinary methods needed for their study
- To provide an understanding of the main principles of Aeroelasticity and Loads analysis by:
- using simple mathematical models to illustrate basic theoretical concepts,
- showing the maths – but not explaining all of the detail and derivations, instead focusing on the connection with the physics introducing relevant terminology and methods, and
- explaining the analysis, testing and certification processes used by the aerospace industry
- To include examples on some of the key topics.
