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.

More than 80 experts on biogas from almost 30 countries representing all continents will discuss the achievements and developments on: - Domestic biogas plants, - Agricultural biogas plants, - Environment, methane-emissions, - Process control, modelling of the biogas process, - Innovative fermentation and digester construction methods, - Digestation application and management, - Biogas generation from industrial, communal and municipal bio-waste, - Flexibility of biogas production and use, - Process inhibition, - Technical economical and social cooperative structures of decentralized small scale biogas systems, - Pretreatment technologies, among others.
During the conference a practitioners forum, an Oral-Poster-Session with more than 20 speakers, posters sessions and an exhibition will take place. In the exhibition, companies and organizations will present their products, services and technical innovations to the international audience experts. We expect to have about 400 participants. Additionally, there will be the opportunity to take part in an agricultural or a research field trip.

This final AircraftFire workshop brings together interested people from science (researchers from academia and research centres), from industry (engineers, aircraft designers, parts manufacturers) and professionals from or related to public services, who are working and involved in the field of Fire Safety in aeronautics.
In the past 20 years, the fire threat in aeronautics has been drastically reduced. But in new generation aircrafts the massive use of flammable composites, substituting metallic structural elements, changes the understanding of fire risk, and can influences the fire safety approach for passenger and crew safety and survivability during fire incidents or accidents.
7-10 September 2014, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
The Conference aim is to “Advance Science for Human and Environmental Health” and we have an exciting programme highlighting new and innovative science and current regulatory topics. There will be a mix of plenary and keynote lectures, symposia, workshops and a full continuing education programme. In addition, there will be interactive poster sessions and a dynamic trade exhibition. EUROTOX 2014 will be THE meeting place for toxicologists from around the world to come together to meet and discuss the key issues facing the discipline today.
