First Canadian Peptide and Protein Community Virtual Symposium

May 27, 2021 to May 28, 2021

https://sciforum.net/conference/CPPC2021

Organizing Committee: Éric Biron (Laval U), Voula Kanelis (UT), William D. Lubell (UdeM), Leonard G Luyt (UWO), David Perrin (UBC) and Jumi A. Shin (UT)

Peptides and proteins are remarkable natural biopolymers which inspire various fields of contemporary research. Moreover, they serve as components of a variety of medicines, catalysts, materials, cosmetics and agricultural products. Our virtual symposium brings together leading researchers at the cutting edge of peptide and protein science. With a broad focus and intent to promote the visibility of emerging scientists and young investigators, this two-day event will feature leaders in the characterization, synthesis and application of peptides and proteins in various domains targeted for improving basic knowledge and enhancing quality of life.

Invited speakers:
Marya Ahmed (University of Prince Edward Island)
Steve Bourgault (Université du Québec à Montréal)
Deniz Meneksedag Erol (Concordia University)
Voula Kanelis (University of Toronto)
Galia Maayan (Technion – Israel Institute of Technology)
Kevin McDonnell (Bicycle Therapeutics)
Caroline Proulx (North Carolina State University)
Alanna Schepartz (University of California Berkeley)
Suzana K. Straus (University of British Columbia)

14th Australian Peptide Conference

October 17, 2021 to October 22, 2021

https://www.apc2021.org/

Welcome to the 14th Australian Peptide Conference, which will be held at Crowne Plaza, Surfers Paradise, Queensland, Australia, in 2021!

The theme of the meeting is ‘Peptides in Paradise’ and the organising committee is assembling an exciting program containing a wide range of peptide science and applications, including discovery, characterisation, structural biology, pharmacology, chemical synthesis and biosynthesis, engineering, therapeutic development, proteomics and technological advances.

We are looking forward to seeing Australian colleagues face-to-face on the Gold Coast, but are well aware that the COVID-19 situation will still likely make it difficult for international friends to travel, thus the meeting will be held in a hybrid format allowing online participation.

We look forward to seeing you in Surfers Paradise for the 14th Australian Peptide Conference, 17 - 22 Oct 2021!

Johan Rosengren and Richard Payne
Co-Chairs, Australian Peptide Conference 2021

Travel Award Deadline: Fri 16 July
Tregear Award Deadline: Fri 16 July
Early Bird Registration Deadline: Fri 13 August
Oral Abstract Deadline: Fri 13 August
Poster Abstract Deadline: Fri 13 August

36th European Peptide Symposium and 12th International Peptide Symposium

August 28, 2022 to September 2, 2022

On behalf of the organizing committee, we invite you to join us at the 36th European and 12th International Peptide Symposium, to be held at Sitges (Barcelona), Spain, from August 28 to September 2, 2021.

The meeting, themed “From Peptides to the World”, will be an ideal occasion for academia and industry scientists from all over the world to learn and discuss about the thriving field of peptide science, exchanging ideas, creating new alliances, meeting old –and making new– friends.

The 36EPS scientific committee has set out to assemble an exciting program with a broad range of topics covering, among others, advances in peptide chemistry and structure, bioactive peptides and their therapeutic applications, and peptide biomaterials, nanotechnology and delivery. In addition, associated satellite meetings and workshops will take place.

The conference will take place at the Melià Sitges, a leading hotel and convention center with a 1200-seat auditorium and 4,000 square meters for commercial exhibition, poster sessions and coffee breaks, all within the pleasant setting of a 300-room establishment with outdoor pool, gardens and terraces overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

Sitges, 40 km south of Barcelona and well-connected (every 30 min) by rail to Barcelona International Airport and Central Station, is a trendy resort with privileged location and mild Mediterranean climate favouring outdoor activities practically all year-round. Four kilometres of beach, fringed by a sea-front promenade dotted with artful colonial mansions facing the sea, provide a perfect excuse for strolling in this convivial town well-known for its open, inclusive, relaxed atmosphere.

The scientific and local organizing committees, supported by the EPS executive committee, are keen to make the 36EPS/12IPS a memorable, successful scientific event. Convinced that your presence will contribute to that, we look forward to meeting you in Sitges in 2022!

​Very best wishes,

Meritxell Teixidó
36EPS Symposium Chair
