Systems Chemistry research is directed at understanding the organizational principles of complex chemical and biological systems. Scientists from different disciplines, such as Supramolecular Chemistry, Chemical Physics, Chemical Biology and Theoretical Biology try together to shine light on emergent properties in chemical systems, with the hope to also unravel different scenarios relevant to the origin of living systems. The meeting in Crete/Greece will focus on studies that can conceptually bridge the prebiotic chemistry with engineering and analysis of molecular networks, and those that may lead all the way to the development of artificial cells.
COST is proud to announce that Ada Yonath, who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2009 along with Venkatraman Ramakrishnan and Thomas A. Steitz for her studies on the structure and function of the ribosome, will give a talk at the meeting.
The conference will include lectures by invited high-level speakers, short talks by young and early stage researchers, poster sessions and open discussion periods as well as a forward look panel discussion about future developments.
CALL for APPLICATIONS
Please submit your application no later than 15 June 2011, in order to present your latest research outcome, or discuss current scientific understanding and recent developments with your peers. Grants are available for young researchers to cover the conference fee and travel costs partially.
