About the Workshop

Cells constantly sense and react to changes in their environment through signaling networks that display modularity at different scales. In space and time, groups of proteins process input signals into integrated responses. Spectacular examples of engineered circuits are evidence of the modularity of these systems. Zooming into the structural details, the underlying proteins often display themselves a modular architecture, with domain regions performing functions that can be studied in isolation. This meeting focuses on the modularity of cell signaling and their integration across scales. It brings together researchers from diverse areas with a focus on common principles and an explicit goal of fostering new ways of thinking.

This EMBO Workshop has been held periodically in Seefeld since 2001 stimulating discussions that have been unsurpassed in their openness and their impact on attendees at all career stages. There is a strong focus of the meeting in the promotion of the next generation of researchers in cell signaling with a large fraction of the talks selected from abstracts. We encourage all our participants to present unpublished work and to place their work in a broader context, discussing new concepts and principles.

The airports of Salzburg, Munich, and Innsbruck offer the most convenient access routes to Seefeld. We will organise shuttle bus services from and to Munich Airport.

Arrival shuttle:

Transfers will be arranged from Munich airport to Seefeld on 11 September and 16th September. Times TBC. The total journey from Munich Airport to the conference venue is about 2.5 hours.

Departure shuttle:

There will be departure shuttles organised for travels from Seefeld to Munich airport. The morning shuttle will leave around 7 AM and a second shuttle will be organised for a couple of hours later.

For alternative arrival/departure dates and times, the participants need to arrange their transfer at their own cost. Another convenient option is to travel via Innsbruck, from where there is an easy transfer option by train.
