About the Workshop

During autophagy, cytoplasmic components ranging from individual proteins to organelles and pathogens are delivered to the lysosome or vacuole for degradation and reuse. The discovery of a set of conserved ATG proteins involved in autophagy in yeast, recognized by a Nobel prize in 2016, established the core machinery. The complexity of autophagy processes is dramatically increased in higher eukaryotes. Autophagy is essential for the homeostatic balance of cells and organisms and its deregulation has been associated with a plethora of human diseases. There is an unmet need to deepen our understanding of its roles and molecular mechanisms, its regulation by various signaling pathways during normal and stress conditions, and its targetability for therapeutic intervention strategies. The goal of this meeting is to expand and integrate new and unpublished data on the genetics, proteomics, cell biology, biophysics and biochemistry of autophagy processes with previously under represented model systems, disease relevant topics and emerging technologies. The meeting will foster interactions between early-stage researchers, junior group leaders and established investigators and thus facilitate the enrollment and education of the next-generation scientists to tackle challenges implicated in the translation of basic research findings towards disease models diverse in scale and species.

Venue

Hotel Eger & Park

1-3 Szalloda St, Eger H-3300 Hungary

Accommodation

Hotel Eger & Park is a regular venue for multiple national and international conferences thanks to its excellent amenities including multiple lecture halls (each of which can seat between 200 and 700 people), exhibition/poster area of 1,200 square metres, 214 guest rooms, professional staff, onsite catering in their restaurant seating 300+ guests, onsite pizza bar, wellness and bowling facilities.

Price per night (single room): 24000 HUF + tourist tax

Price per night (double room): 28500 HUF + tourist tax

Transport

The hotel is located 142 km away from Budapest airport. Coaches are arranged on the first and last days of the meeting (3-4 buses with a capacity of 50+ passengers) to transport all participants in a 90-minute ride that will not incur extra costs for attendees. We encourage the use of trains instead of airplanes to get to Budapest/Eger (note that the same international train terminal in Budapest serves both the meeting location Eger and foreign countries including Austria and Germany, so transfer is easy). Regular bus connections are also available.

About the Area

Eger is a small medieval town with an attractive atmosphere, situated in a traditional vine region in Hungary. Participants can enjoy sightseeing (for example Eger Castle, Valley of the Beautiful Woman, Dobo Square, Basilica, Minaret), walking or running in Archbishop’s Garden, and hiking the nearby North Hungarian Mountains of the Inner Western Carpathians.
