About the Workshop

Signaling networks exhibit exceptional complexity and robustness and a key underlying principle is system modularity, which operates across multiple scales. At the cellular level, signaling networks exhibit spatiotemporal modularity with regulatory decisions being made by dynamic macromolecular complexes. At the heart of these complexes are proteins with remarkably fine-grained structure-function modularity. Understanding the design principles operating across these multiple scales requires interdisciplinary research.

Since 2001, workshops have been periodically held in Seefeld, Austria, to discuss the latest developments in modularity in signaling. These workshops are unique in their emphasis on the common principles underlying signaling, as opposed to focusing on specific systems or mechanisms. The workshops have been unsurpassed in their inclusiveness and openness, aiming to expand collaborative opportunities and foster active participation at all career stages. The 2018 EMBO Workshop will cover contemporary interdisciplinary signaling research ranging from molecular and computational approaches to applications in disease, which will enable the rational manipulation of signaling to improve human health.

Venue

Aktivhotel Hotel Veronika

Riehlweg 161 · A-6100 Seefeld in Tirol

Telephone: +43 (0) 5212 2105

Fax: +43 (0) 5212 3787

Accommodation

The Aktivhotel Veronika is a small 4-star hotel perfectly equipped for workshops of this size and style. The hotel offers a total of 50 rooms and larger suites sufficient for hosting the full list of participants in the same location. This adds significantly to the relaxed atmosphere. The entire Hotel will be available exclusively for the time of the workshop. Facilities include a fully equipped lecture room sufficient for seating 90 people, a separate room for poster presentation, a generously sized dining room and a bar area.

Please Note: Most attendees will share a room or suite with one or two other participants.

Transport

Seefeld can be reached easily from the airports of Salzburg, Munich and Innsbruck. We will use Munich Airport as the central hub, as a number of budget airlines conveniently fly into Munich from many European locations. Workshop attendees will be delivered to the venue by means of shuttle buses from Munich Airport.

Transfer will be arranged from Munich airport to Seefeld 16 September, with the latest bus leaving around 16:00, so that the participants will arrive in time for dinner and the opening lectures. We therefore recommend arrival to Munich airport no later than 15:00 on 16 September. The transfer time is about 2 1/2 hours. For the departure, we will arrange with one bus leaving Seefeld around 7 in the morning on 21 Sepember, and one bus leaving a couple of hours later.

For alternative arrival/departure dates and times, the participants need to arrange their transfer at their own cost. One option may be to go via Innsbruck, from which there is easy transfer by train.

About the Area

Seefeld is situated 20 km northeast of Innsbruck on a picturesque high plateau, offering a view of the northern mountain ridges of the Nordkette. Seefeld, at the heart of the Olympiaregion Seefeld, presents itself both as a traditional village with idyllic, Tyrolean attractions, and as forward-thinking and modern.
