Q-Sort 2019 International Conference On Quantum Imaging And Electron Beam Shaping
2-5 July 2019, Erlangen, Germany
This conference is organized jointly by the partners of the projects Quantum Sorter – A new Measurement Paradigm in Electron Microscopy (H2020-FETOPEN) with the support of Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, Erlangen Recent developments in the spatial and temporal shaping of electron beams are on the verge of technological commercialisation, where they would provide routes towards image-resolution enhancement and novel microscopy techniques.
Most of these methods, such as passive and dynamic wave packet modulation, as well as structured light-matter interaction, are inspired by their optical counterpart and have now been explored in transmission electron microscopy. However, other schemes exist, inspired by quantum optics, such as so-called “interaction-free” methods, optimal quantum state tomography, and computational ghost imaging, which may be implemented in electron microscopy.
All these new methods hold the promise of improving the imaging of dose-sensitive specimens. The Q-SORT International Conference on Quantum Imaging and Electron Beam Shaping aims to gather experts from the fields of electron and laser beam shaping, free-space electron optics, and related sub-fields of quantum mechanics.
Participants will present and share their latest discoveries and innovations.
This meeting will be one of the first of its kind: it is thus uniquely positioned, since luminaries and pioneers from all the above research fields will be present. They will have the possibility to closely interact and exchange ideas for new, interdisciplinary collaborations.
Q-SORT has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 766970 Q-SORT (H2020-FETOPEN-1-2016-2017)
Save the date! Open Info Day, Horizon 2020 - 'Health, demographic change and wellbeing'

European Bioeconomy Scene 2019
8-10 July 2019, Helsinki, Finland
A Bioeconomy Conference is being organised to contribute to achieving an inclusive and sustainable bioeconomy for Europe.
Finland’s Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and the European Commission are jointly organising the conference, and it is one of the events to be held in Helsinki under Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
The conference is aimed at raising public awareness and promoting dialogue on the progress towards a bioeconomy.
This will be accomplished by bringing together academics, researchers, stakeholders, policymakers, business representatives and the civil society across the bioeconomy sector to exchange knowledge, coordinate activities and discuss new actions.
The conference will help to implement important EU policies and initiatives, especially the updated Bioeconomy Strategy from 2018 “A sustainable Bioeconomy for Europe: strengthening the connection between economy, society and the environment” and the Circular Economy Package.The conference opens on 8 July with a welcoming reception organised by the City of Helsinki and hosted by Mayor Jan Vapaavuori. The conference itself takes place on 9 July at the hotel Scandic Park Helsinki, which is located in the city centre. On 10 July, there are excursions to see how the bioeconomy can work in practice. Excursions will be arranged within the greater Helsinki area, and in central and eastern Finland
ICSD 2019 : 7th International Conference on Sustainable Development
4-5 September 2019, Rome, Italy
ICSD2019 will be an excellent opportunity to present your projects and discuss the latest results in the field of Sustainability Science. The general aim of the conference is to promote international collaboration in Sustainability Science and related disciplines. The attendance of more than 120 delegates from 50 different countries is expected.
The Conference theme is: “Creating a unified foundation for the Sustainable Development: research, practice and education”. This theme emphasizes the strong foundation that is provided by using research to inform our everyday practices, policies, and research approaches.
The 2019 Conference will once again provide a forum for the sharing of ideas, presentation of research findings, and discussion of professional issues relevant to Sustainability Science
New Frontiers in Structure-Based Drug Discovery
23-25 September 2019, Italy, Florence
The Marie Skłodowska - Curie European Training Networks AEGIS and TASPPI are pleased to announce the common organized international conference New Frontiers in Structure-Based Drug Discovery, Sep 23-25, 2019 at Convitto della Calza in Florence, Italy.
Attracting a high-level audience of researchers, the conference will provide a stimulating platform to discuss with academic experts and scientists from biotech and pharmaceutical industries.
Topics include innovative screens on protein-protein interactions, novel targets and target validation, structure-based drug discovery, computational approaches and more.
The conference will provide a valuable platform to discuss the challenges and opportunities of modern drug discovery in academia and industry. Already since the times of Leonardo da Vinci, Florence provides with his vibrating scientific and cultural environment an excellent framework for the valuable experience of collaboration and scientific exchange reaching out to junior investigators and leading scientists in the field of drug research.
In order to foster interaction and discussions in the field, we are pleased to host an exceptional group of internationally renowned experts on the topic of drug discovery, who build the framework of the New Frontiers in Structure-based Drug Discovery's scientific program.
Additional oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts at New Frontiers in Structure-Based Drug Discovery. A poster session will provide opportunities for further discussions
