2nd International Metaproteomics Symposium
Starting dates: 14-16 June 2017
Location: Sardinia, Italy
After the success of the first edition held in Magdeburg (Germany), it is our great pleasure to announce that the 2nd International Metaproteomics Symposium ‒ What can we learn about microbial communities and their functions? ‒ will take place in Alghero (Sardinia, Italy).
The Symposium will provide scientific updates and collegial discussions across a broad array of different scientific disciplines focusing on microbial community systems and functions, with special emphasis on cutting-edge metaproteomics methodologies and their applications.
The Symposium will comprise plenary sessions, poster sessions and breakout workshops covering both disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives, and topics addressed will include:
- sample preparation techniques for metaproteomics
- mass spectrometry methods for discovery and targeted metaproteomics
- metaproteome bioinformatics
- multi-omic approaches and systems microbiology
- applications of metaproteomics in health and disease
- metaproteomics and animal production
- food and plant metaproteomics
- environmental metaproteomics
The event is organized by Porto Conte Ricerche, a research center belonging to the Science and Technology Park of Sardinia and located nearby the wonderful Porto Conte bay and Capo Caccia cliffs, with the supervision of an international Scientific Committee composed by Dirk Benndorf (O. von Guericke University, Magdeburg, Germany), Lennart Martens (Ghent University, Belgium), Sergio Uzzau (Porto Conte Ricerche, Alghero, Italy) and Paul Wilmes (University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg).
Confirmed speakers include Pratik Jagtap (University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA), Jana Seifert (University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany), Haixu Tang (Indiana University, Bloomington, USA) and Dennis Wolan (The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, USA).
The deadline for early bird registration is 3 February 2017, while abstracts should be submitted before 3 March 3 2017.
In view of the broad and innovative topics addressed, as well as of the list of distinguished scientists involved, we believe that the Symposium might be of interest for all researchers dealing with microbiome study and characterization, and therefore look forward to seeing you in Sardinia!
