This EMBO/EMBL Symposium entitled “Seeing is Believing – Imaging the Processes of Life 2015″ will commence in Heidelberg, Germany on October 6 – 10, 2015 and is organised by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL).
The processes of life are naturally dynamic in space and time from the atomic to the organismal level. The rapid development of imaging methods across this full scale of biological organisation is revolutionising our ability to visualise the inner workings of proteins, protein complexes, organelles, cells, tissues, organs and whole organisms. Being able to see biological processes unfold in real time allows us to understand the mechanism of life as well as disease.
With the Symposium “Seeing is Believing – Imaging the Processes of Life” we aim to bring together the leading developers of imaging methods with cutting edge applications that illustrate how imaging can answer biological questions. We will place emphasis on methods that are able to capture the dynamics of life and aim to span the whole range from molecular resolution to imaging of whole organisms.

Who should attend?
Everybody interested in the latest imaging technologies and their applications in the life sciences. The meeting provides many opportunities for presentations, discussions and interactions between students, postdocs, junior as well as senior investigators.
Registration Fee Waivers and Travel Grants are available for young researchers for the EMBO I EMBL Symposia Series (see below). Please indicate your interest for a Registration Fee Waiver or Travel Grant or both when submitting your abstract.
Registration Fee Waiver: The sum that you have paid to attend the meeting will be reimbursed
Travel Grant: Up to €500 for participants arriving from the eligible countries listed below
The scientific organisers will select the recipients of all fellowships during the abstract selection process.
If you are awarded a fellowship, you will be notified after the completion of the abstract selection. This is usually 8 weeks before the event start date. Please note that you must pay your registration fee by the payment deadline (6 weeks before the event start date). The EMBL Course & Conference Office will request your bank details and reimburse the registration fees after the event. Travel Grants can only be reimbursed after the event once the receipts have been submitted.
