11th International Conference on Biology and Synchrotron Radiation (BSR) 2013

  • Conference Call
  • The Euro­pean Mol­e­c­u­lar Biol­ogy Lab­o­ra­tory (EMBL) is organ­is­ing the 11th Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Biol­ogy and Syn­chro­ton Radi­a­tion (BSR). The event organ­is­ers are look­ing for­ward to your par­tic­i­pa­tion. The event will be held Sep­tem­ber 8 – 11, 2013 in Ham­burg, Ger­many.

    His­tory of the Conference

    The Inter­na­tional Biol­ogy and Syn­chro­tron Radi­a­tion (BSR) meet­ings are held every three years with the aim of pre­sent­ing and dis­cussing state of the art appli­ca­tions in rel­e­vant research fields.They have a long-​standing record since the first meet­ing in Fras­cati, Italy in 1986. Sub­se­quent meet­ings were held at sites at or near the most advanced light souce facil­i­ties around the world, with the last BSR meet­ing tak­ing place in Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia, in 2010.

    Con­fer­ence Aims

    The prin­ci­pal objec­tive of the pro­posed meet­ing and series will be to pro­vide a forum bring­ing together the sci­en­tists involved in the method­i­cal devel­op­ments on syn­chro­tron and laser sources with a broad com­mu­nity of biol­o­gists hav­ing an ambi­tion to make the best use of the most advanced infra­struc­tures in struc­tural biology.

    Who should attend

    The BSR con­fer­ence is unique in scope by being the only event specif­i­cally bring­ing together a broad life science-​oriented research com­mu­nity and a more tech­ni­cally synchrotron/​laser sci­en­tists’ com­mu­nity worldwide.

    Sci­en­tists at all pos­si­ble career lev­els are invited to this meet­ing — rang­ing from grad­u­ate stu­dents, post­doc­toral fel­lows and prin­ci­pal inves­ti­ga­tors from both acad­e­mia and indus­try. There will be ample oppor­tu­ni­ties for indi­vid­ual presentations.

    Con­fer­ence Topics

    • Bio­log­i­cal small angle X-​ray scattering
    • Macro­mol­e­c­u­lar X-​ray crystallography
    • Bio­log­i­cal X-​ray imag­ing and spectroscopy
    • Bio­log­i­cal sam­ple preparation
    • Free elec­tron laser applications
    • Syn­chro­tron instrumentation
    • Struc­tural biol­ogy hybrid methods
    • Indus­trial applications
    • Ulti­mate stor­age rings
    Con­fer­ence Summary

    X-​rays belong to the most pow­er­ful phys­i­cal instru­ments in life sci­ences allow­ing to elu­ci­date the struc­ture of bio­log­i­cal objects at atomic, mol­e­c­u­lar and cel­lu­lar level.

    We would like to use this con­fer­ence as an oppor­tu­nity to sub­stan­tially expand the sci­en­tific scope of the con­fer­ence from a pre­dom­i­nantly tech­ni­cally one to a more bio­log­i­cally ori­ented one. This will allow one to tackle new chal­lenges in struc­tural biol­ogy, which will fur­ther extend into even larger struc­tures from multi-​component macro­mol­e­c­u­lar com­plexes, per­form­ing most impor­tant cel­lu­lar functions.
