It is for us a pleasure to announce the XII EuPA Congress that will take place in Santiago de Compostela (Spain) in June 2018. This will be a joint meeting with the Spanish Proteomics Society (SEProt) and the Portuguese Proteomics Association (ProCura), which makes it something special, more than a regular EuPA congress. Indeed, for SEProt this will be our 7th Congress. As pre-congress events, EuPA-educational courses, and the Chromosome-based Human Proteome Project (C-HPP) Meeting - promoted by HUPO - will take place, bringing additional scientific value to the event.
The Congress will take place on the 16-20 June 2018 at the San Francisco Hotel Monumento, Santiago de Compostela (Galicia, Spain). Santiago de Compostela is a historical UNESCO-protected city, famous for its pilgrims' way and its 520 year old university. It is the capital of Galicia and is very close to North Portugal, which makes it an ideal location for this joint meeting. San Francisco Hotel Monumento is 150 m from the Cathedral, right in Santiago de Compostela’s historic city centre.
The Organizing Committee is preparing an exciting scientific program, covering various topics, including cellular proteomics, PTMs, data management and interpretation, clinical proteomics (cancer, cardiovascular & blood proteomics, other diseases), food and nutrition proteomics, microorganisms and microbiota, chemical proteomics (drug discovery), Standardization & Technological Innovation, Proteomics in Agriculture Biotechnology and animal proteomics. Moreover, a EuPA Young Proteomics Investigator Club (YPIC) session will take place on Sunday afternoon, just before the opening lecture. A preliminary programme of the Congress is already available in this webpage and will be updated regularly.
It is our pleasure to announce that the Opening Lecture of the congress will be given by Prof. Ruedi Aebersold, who will be named Honorary Member of SEProt for his outstanding contribution to the Proteomics field.
In summary, we invite you to come to Santiago and join us for this exciting meeting that we are sure will be a reference event for the Proteomics field in 2018.
