It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 7th International Symposium on Metallomics in Warsaw, the capital of Poland from June 30th to July 3rd, 2019.
We have the ambition to adopt and to develop further the best ideas from the heritage of the six former successful Metallomics Symposia started in 2007 in Nagoya and held since then biannually (Cincinnati, 2009, Munster 2011, Oviedo, 2013, Beijing, 2015, Vienna 2017).

The scientific programme of the Symposium will reflect the interdisciplinarity of metallomics, the integrated biometal science. The leitmotiv is the understanding of the interactions of metal ions and their chemical structures in the biological systems, the biological functions these structures acquire and the fine-tuning of their usage in biology with a focus on a global multimetal approach.
We will assure a representative coverage of the latest developments in analytical chemistry, biology and biochemistry addressing the role of essential and toxic metals and metalloids in all the important areas of the modern society: nutrition and disease, environmental and human toxicology, plant physiology and phytoremediation, biomedical sciences, and others.

MOTEC 2019 - 11th Molybdenum and Tugsten Enzymes Confrence & satellite
Meeting on "FeS for life"
July 7-12, 2019

Postdam, Germany

Dear colleagues,
We are happy to announce that the date for the 11th International MoTEC Conference is set. The conference will take place in Potsdam (Germany) from July 7-12, 2019. Please save the date! The conference will cover all fronts of molybdenum and tungsten enzyme research including nitrogenases, but will also include research on related enzymes.

We also want to announce the attached satellite meeting on “FeS for life” which will take place right before the MoTEC conference, from July 6-7.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Potsdam 2019,

Silke Leimkuehler  on behalf of the organizing committee

Mechanisms of Metal Protein Speciation in Cells
July 13-14, 2019
Barcelona, Spain

Chairs: Alecia T. Dent and Maria Alessandra Martini

This GRS, the "Cell Biology of Metals (GRS)" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS), will be held in conjunction with the Gordon Research Conference Organismal Biology of Metals and Related Metal Complexes (GRC) below.Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.

Organismal Biology of Metals and Related Metal Complexes
July 14-19, 2019
Barcelona, Spain

Chairs: Iqbal Hamza and Amanda Bird
Vice Chairs: Caryn E. Outten and Mitchell Knutson

Rey Don Jaime Grand Hotel
Avinguda de l'Hotel
Castelldefels, ES

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 16, 2019. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the conference chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

Conference Description
The Cell Biology of Metals GRC started in 2005 to bridge significant gaps in our understanding of biological metals in the cellular and organismal context. The conference provides a highly interactive forum for junior and senior investigates to learn about the latest advances in metal homeostasis. This keystone meeting has been instrumental in identifying major knowledge gaps; overcoming intractable research barriers; nucleating new technological advancements; and establishing emerging concepts. The goal of the 2019 Cell Biology of Metals meeting is to accelerate this trajectory by bringing together clinicians, chemists, physicists, biologists, and engineers with expertise in solving outstanding problems at the interface of cellular and chemical biology of metals. The 2019 program will be organized around the theme of "Organismal Biology of Metals and Related Metal Complexes". Each session will be led by leaders in their respective fields with speakers representing an international cadre of investigators. Cutting-edge talks will be presented ranging from metals at the host-pathogen interface to metallo-sensation and homeostasis to metal -omics in normal and pathological states across phyla. The meeting will provide unique opportunities for established and early-stage investigators to present their work and exchange ideas, learn where the field is heading, and establish new cross-disciplinary collaborations.
Speakers will be present throughout the week providing attendees with ample opportunities for personal interactions. Based upon submitted abstracts, short talks will be identified for each session from junior investigators, including postdocs and students. The collegial atmosphere of this conference, with robust discussions, poster sessions, and informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, provides an excellent venue to develop multi-discipline collaborations. By engaging the research community to actively participate in discussing research at the frontiers of cell biology of metals, conclusions can be generated which can synergize and drive discoveries and positively impact human health.

Related MeetingThis GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Cell Biology of Metals (GRS)" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.

9th International Symposium on Bioorganometallic Chemsitry
July 28 - August 1, 2019
York, United Kingdom
The conference will take place in The Department of Chemistry at the University of York. The venue is located 1.5 miles from the City Centre of York with great transport links. York is a city famous for its shopping, restaurants, bars and boutiques. It provides the ideal location for a leisurely stroll for you and your delegates. The home of famous places such as the Shambles (Europe’s best-preserved Medieval Street) and York Minster, one of the oldest cathedrals in the UK. York has a plethora of places to shop, eat and drink. Whether you are looking to  buy gifts and souvenirs, or indulge yourself with some quirky new purchases, York’s bustling shopping scene will offer you everything you need.
For more information please download the York Conferences Information Pack.
Onsite accommodation will be available at Alcuin College, it is situated in the north of the University of York campus. York City Centre is about 15 minutes away by bus or car.  
Alternative accommodation is available in the city centre but must be booked directly, recommended hotels can be found here.
For further information about onsite accommodation please download the Alcuin Guest Information.

19th International Conference on Biological Inorganic Chemistry (ICBIC-19)
August 11-16, 2019
Interlaken, Switzerland 


The organizing committee cordially invites you to join us at ICBIC-19 that will be held in Interlaken, Switzerland, on August 11-16, 2019.
The ICBICs were founded 1983 in Florence, Italy, with the first conference of this series. The conferences take place on a biannual basis in different countries all around the world and are doubtlessly the most important event in the area of Biological Inorganic Chemistry. Attracting scientists from all over the world, the ICBICs provide the major platform to present and discuss the latest developments in the field.

Interlaken is probably the top destination for tourists visiting Switzerland and located in the very center of the country. It is surrounded by the Swiss alps and just 20 km from Grindelwald with its famous mountains Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau, which are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch protected area. Excellent train and bus services connect Interlaken with the three major Swiss airports.

We are looking forward to welcoming you all in Interlaken for ICBIC-19!
Eva Freisinger and Roland Sigel
