35th FEBS Congress: Molecules of Life

Date Saturday, June 26 - Thursday, July 01, 2010
Location Gothenburg, Sweden
Organizers Swedish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Norwegian Biochemical Society


Welcome to FEBS2010! For the first time a FEBS Congress will be organised jointly by two FEBS Constituent Societies. Your hosts in June 2010 will be the Swedish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Norwegian Biochemical Society. In this way we believe that our small countries (in terms of population and therefore size of the scientific community) will bring together the critical mass to organise the meeting and attract a large number of participants. We are very grateful to our colleagues from the Baltic Countries Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia as well as Poland, Finland and Denmark, who all supported us in our task.

FEBS Congresses are showcases of the advances in the molecular bio and medical sciences. We will arrange for an attractive and exciting scientific programme that will reflect the most recent advances in molecular biology and biochemistry. At the same time FEBS Congresses serve important roles in networking between scientists from Europe and the whole world. Importantly, FEBS Congresses also serve the purpose of training young scientists and integrating them into the larger scientific community. We are dedicated to make FEBS2010 a forum for young scientists to interact with peers in the field. The Young Scientist Forum is dedicated to this purpose but also the main Congress will encompass many relevant activities.

Göteborg/Gothenburg is a most effective congress city where everything is truly in walking distance - the congress centre is located in the heart of the city. The efficient Congress organisation will allow you to focus on the scientific programme and interacting with colleagues and young researchers. Gothenburg is also a lively, friendly and open city with many attractions. The city is an excellent starting point for a summer vacation in the exotic Scandinavian sub-continent. FEBS2010 will start on the midsummer weekend, the most important celebration in the Nordic countries. Daylight almost around the clock! These attributes together with the open and friendly atmosphere will make sure that scientific interaction and communication will thrive at FEBS2010!

We are looking forward to host you and to make FEBS2010 a memorable Nordic experience.
