21th European BioEnergetics Conference 2022
August 20th to 25th 2022
Aix-en-Provence — France

The 21st edition of the European BioEnergetics Conference, originally scheduled for 2020, will be held from August 20th to 25th 2022 in Aix-en-Provence, France. Forty years ago the first EBEC conference was organized by Melandri & Melandri in Italy. Since, this biennial conference was held in fifteen European countries and brought together scientists of different scientific horizons from Europe and abroad. Topics ranging from barely understood metabolisms of recently discovered anaerobic microorganisms to mitochondrial diseases, from details on active site mechanism of specific enzymes to regulation of bioenergetic networks find their place here and contribute to the interest of these meetings.
We are pleased to organize the 2022 edition in the city of Aix-en-Provence with its historical center dating back to the roman period and in eye sight of Montagne Sainte-Victoire that inspired Cezanne to his famous paintings. The faculty Schuman is located at the rim of the old city. It has just been renovated and will offer us a convenient, modern environment with several amphitheatres and ample poster space.
We are looking forward meeting you at EBEC2022 and will do our best to make it an interesting and thought-provoking meeting with contributions from all and every one of you!
Barbara Schoepp-Cothenet and Axel Magalon for the EBEC2022 organizing committee

EMBO Workshop
When predictions meet experiments: The future of structure determination
05 – 08 September 2022 | Palermo, Italy

Figuring out the “protein folding problem”, that is predicting protein structure from the amino acid sequence, has stood as a grand challenge in biology for the past 50 years. Thanks to the efforts of several generations of structural biologists, bioinformatics experts and artificial intelligence (AI), the organisers of the biennial Critical Assessment of protein Structure Prediction (CASP) competition have declared the AlphaFold program as a solution to this grand challenge. This major breakthrough has demonstrated the impact that AI can have on scientific discovery and its potential to dramatically accelerate progress in fundamental fields. At the same time, however, predictions should not be perceived as a way to substitute experimental work. Important challenges are still ahead of us: intrinsically disordered or multidomain proteins, large complexes. The new tools should be used not to stop structural biology but to push its frontiers. The present workshop is thus meant to fill the gap between experimentalists and computational scientists, provide mutual feedback and constitute a forum to promote and facilitate the dialogue on how AI predictions can be integrated in the normal practice of structure determination to increase the capabilities of both experimentalists and computational scientists.

14th EBSA Congress
Stockholm, Sweden
July 30 - August 4, 2023

An EBSA congress in Sweden is timely. In 1986, the first EBSA Workshop was held at Saltsjöbaden, Stockholm, hosted by the Swedish Biophysical Society and chaired by professor Anders Ehrenberg. In 2023, after a series of great EBSA meetings around Europe, the Swedish Society for Biochemistry, Biophysics and Molecular Biology is again proud to host the 14th EBSA congress to be held at Stockholm University.

In Biophysics, we investigate properties of time, force, and motion in biomolecular assemblies and processes – from single molecules to cells and tissues - and relate these to biological function. Biophysics has evolved dramatically since 1986, and many Nobel prices have been awarded to biophysicists to previous EBSA Plenary Lecturers in the past, and Nobel Prize winners will also participate in the upcoming congress. The EBSA-2023 will be held at the Aula Magna at Stockholm University, which is also known for hosting the Nobel Lectures in Physics and Chemistry.

EBSA-2023 will offer a creative meeting ground for investigating how the most novel experimental, theoretical and computational approaches in Biophysics can be synergistically tailored to improve our understanding of biological function, and thereby build an even stronger scientific bridge between physics, biology and medicine.
We are much looking forward to learning more about your most recent findings at EBSA-2023, and to jointly enjoy novel breakthroughs in this wide and exciting field.
