31. júl – 4. august 2023 Štokholm, Švédsko

An EBSA congress in Sweden is timely. In 1986, the first EBSA Workshop was hosted by the Swedish Biophysical Society and Professor Anders Ehrenberg, the first president of EBSA. In 2023, after a series of great EBSA meetings around Europe, the Swedish Society for Biochemistry, Biophysics and Molecular Biology (SFBBM) is again, jointly with EBSA and Protein Society, proud to host the 14th EBSA congress at Stockholm University, supported by the Swedish National Committee for Molecular Biosciences (of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences). In this meeting, we are honored to also collaborate with the Biophysical Society, IUPAB and SciLifeLab.
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.

  1. – 28. júl 2021 Viedeň

Austria has a long-standing tradition in biophysics: in 2021, the Austrian Biophysical Society will celebrate its 60th birthday. Founded in 1961, Biophysics Austria is among the oldest biophysical societies in Europe and hosted the first European meeting in Biophysics in Baden by Vienna in 1971. The 2021 congress will be held under the umbrella and with the support of the European Biophysical Societies Association (EBSA).  Many well-known companies will support this meeting.

We designed an outstanding scientific programme covering most biophysical research directions, including single-molecule biophysics, high resolution optical and force microscopy, ion channels and transporters, lipids and membranes, structural biology, theoretical biophysics, cell mechanics, and many other subjects.

Our event features cross-disciplinary plenary lectures that foster discussions at or beyond the frontiers of current biophysical research. For the first time, a public lecture will start the congress. Nobel laureate Ada Yonath is honoring the contribution of Erwin Schrödinger to life sciences by outlining her view on the old question „What is life?“. The lecture will be open to any person interested in science.

More than 60 invited speakers have already agreed to share their latest exciting results. More than 70 slots are planned for the junior researchers to present their results.

We are preparing our meeting as a hybrid meeting, i.e., we would like to welcome every interested biophysicist – independent of the travel situation. If vaccination is unable to stop the pandemic spread, the meeting will be held online. In this case, all registration fees will be converted to virtual fees.

Please pay attention to many bursaries and awards provided by EBSA, Biophysics Austria, and the Biophysical Society of America. We also have exciting news for all young parents struggling to combine science and family – we will offer child care for the participants!

The Austrian Biophysical Society is highly pleased and honored to host the scientific communities from the European Biophysics Associate Societies. We will go to great lengths to make EBSA 2021 meeting in Vienna most enjoyable and as memorable as possible!

Due to the severe current situation and restrictions, as well as the unpredictability of the COVID-19 epidemic and the related safety measures in Hungary and around the world, the Board of the Hungarian Biophysical Society with the organizers consider postponing the Regional Biophysics Conference 2020 with the on-site attendance of the participants for an uncertain period of time.

It is with regret that we have to come to this decision that is very disappointing for us since the Regional Biophysics Congress is one of the main scientific forums in the region and we were very much looking forward to welcoming scientists from the field of biophysics to RBC2020 in the city of Pécs.

IX. Slovenské biofyzikálne sympózium, Trnava, 16. – 18. september 2020

IX. Slovenské biofyzikálne sympózium, Trnava, 16. – 18. september 2020

Milé kolegyne, milí kolegovia,

srdečne Vás pozývame na 9. ročník Sympózia Slovenskej biofyzikálnej spoločnosti (SKBS). Toto sympózium je podujatie tradične organizované s dvojročnou periodicitou touto spoločnosťou. Hlavným poslaním týchto stretnutí biofyzikov zo Slovenska je prezentovať najnovšie výsledky dosiahnuté v biofyzikálnom výskume, posilniť spoluprácu medzi jednotlivými vedeckými tímami pôsobiacimi v tejto oblasti, upevniť a nadviazať kolegiálne a priateľské vzťahy medzi členmi spoločnosti a oceniť najvýznamnejšie práce mladých výskumníkov do 35 rokov, ako aj celoživotné úsilie „bardov“ biofyziky na Slovensku pre rozvoj a propagáciu tejto vednej disciplíny. Nasledujúce, v poradí deviate sympózium, ktoré je organizované Katedrou biofyziky Fakulty prírodných vied UCM v Trnave, sa uskutoční v dňoch 16.-18.9.2020 v Trnave.

Trnava, 09-11 September 2019

Multimodal optical technologies are emerging technologies with exponential growth. Many applications of light have revolutionized society through medicine, communications, entertainment and culture. Industries based on light are major economic drivers, and light-based technologies directly respond to the needs of humankind by providing access to information, promoting sustainable development, and increasing societal health and well-being.

Training School on Multimodal Optical Imaging is specifically focused at the promotion of Methods of visualisation and reconstruction of Cellular Structural Networks. It is fully supported by EuroCellNet COST action (CA 15214), an Integrative Action for Multidisciplinary Studies on Cellular Structural Networks.

The goal of the training school is to introduce Ph.D. students, scientists and laboratory operators to latest advances in light technologies and their applications in interdisciplinary biosciences and biomedical sciences. A full 3 day session includes specialized lectures on spectroscopy, imaging, data analysis, as well as in 3D printing, followed by scheduled laboratory work where participants will be able to make their own projects in advanced microscopy and macroscopy imaging and spectroscopy, as well as 3D model creation, visualization and fabrication. Focus will be given on practical training, which will be related to the knowledge obtained in theoretical sessions.

Training School venue is in the historic town of Trnava, situated 45km to the north-east of the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava.

We have 25 grants for trainees to be reimbursed for the attendance to the Training School, including travel.
