About the Workshop

Redox reactions are central to all life. It is therefore unsurprising that organisms have evolved numerous strategies to monitor and respond to different cellular redox species. Central to these processes are redox-regulated proteins, which respond to specific redox species via oxidative post-translational modification of defined cysteine residues (thiol oxidation). Protein thiol oxidation is increasingly recognised as an important regulator of many physiological processes whilst aberrant regulation may play a key role in many different pathologies.

This EMBO Workshop will bring together researchers employing a broad range of methodologies and model organisms to understand mechanisms and targets of protein thiol oxidation as well the relevance of thiol oxidation for organismal physiology and pathology.

About EMBO Courses and Workshops

EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).

Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.

Selection criteria

The scientific organisers will select conference participants on the basis of:

Scientific content of the abstract; outstanding abstracts will be selected for short oral presentations.

Number of participants from the same lab.

Abstract guidelines

Abstracts should be a maximum of 200 words in length (with up to 3 references)

Several abstracts will be selected for oral presentations (please indicate your preference for oral or poster presentation).

Poster specifications

Poster boards allow for A0-sized posters (1189 x 841 mm).

Travel grants and registration fee waivers

A limited number of travel grants and registration fee waivers are available for participants.

Applicants do not need to apply separately for these but should indicate on the registration form if they wish to be considered.

Selection of awardees is handled directly by the organizers. More information is available on the EMBO Travel Grants' page.

Special travel grants and registration fee waivers

A limited number of travel grants and registration fee waivers are available for scientists working in Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia and Turkey. Grants are allocated on the basis of the quality of the submitted abstract.

A maximum of 700 Euros per participant are available to cover registration fees, travel, and accommodation (no additional subsistence costs can be covered). To apply, please indicate the itemized amount requested in the travel grants section of the registration form.

Child care grant

EMBO Courses and Workshops offers grants to offset additional child care costs incurred by participants or speakers when participating at any EMBO Courses and Workshop funded meeting. Eligible costs include fees for a caregiver or child-care facility, travel costs for a caregiver, or travel costs for taking the child to the meeting etc. Please indicate on the registration form whether you would like to be considered for the grant. Please also describe how you intend to use the child care grant and specify the sum that you will need.

Hotel Eden Roc is situated in a beautiful location directly on the Costa Brava, approximately 120 km northeast of Barcelona. All rooms have a fully equipped bathroom, TV, minibar, safety deposit box and direct dial telephone.

The hotel has ~50 double rooms for single occupancy and 50 double (twin) rooms for shared occupancy. Single occupancy rooms therefore cannot be offered to all conference attendees. Students and postdocs will be required to share a room.


There are daily flights from most major international airports to Barcelona airport, which is located approximately 120 km from the conference venue (Hotel Eden Roc). Alternatively, Girona airport is less well served by international flights but is much closer (~30 km) to the conference venue. Shuttle buses will be organised to transfer conference attendees between Barcelona or Girona airport and the conference venue on the first and last day of the conference.

Please indicate your requirement for a shuttle bus to and from either Barcelona or Girona airport and the time that you require by sending an email to

Shuttle buses to Hotel Eden Roc on the 8th October 2022:

Shuttle buses will leave Barcelona airport at 1 pm and 3 pm.

A shuttle bus will leave Girona airport at 3 pm.

Shuttle buses from Hotel Eden Roc on the 13th October 2022:

Shuttle buses will leave for Girona airport at 9am.

Shuttle buses will leave for Barcelona at 7am and 9am.

By car

From Barcelona take exit 9 on the motorway A-7. From France take exit 7.
