The Spanish-Italian-Portuguese-French Ion Channel Group (SIPF) and Società Italiana di Fisiologia (SIF) are pleased to announce that the 7th International Workshop on Structure and Function of Ion Channels and Transporters (SFICT) will be held in Sestri Levante, Genoa (Italy), the 2-5 October 2019. For this 7th edition of the workshop which gathers Italian, French, Portuguese and Spanish researchers from the ion channel field every two years, we are expecting a large international participation, which, through a format specially dedicated to young students and post-docs, will foster the exchange of results and ideas between renewed scientists and attendees in a friendly but stimulating environment.
Objective of the Workshop
To open a discussion forum for senior and junior researchers broadly interested in the field of ion channels and transporters, highlighting current research performed in laboratories from Italy, Spain, France and Portugal. Students and postdocs are especially encouraged to attend and present their results as posters or short talks.
The price for a double room to share is 250 euros per student or per young post-doc. Single room is 300 euros. The registration fee includes: lectures, attendance certificate, 3-night-accomodation including breakfast, coffee breaks, 2 lunches, 1 social dinner. After the early registration deadline an extra fee of 30% will be applied.
The price for the participants who do not need any accommodation is 150 euros including lectures, attendance certificate, coffee breaks, 2 lunches, 1 social dinner.
The Portuguese Biophysical Society is receiving applications for the SPBf Prize for Young Biophysicist 2019 during January 2019. This prize will award the young first author of the biophysical paper by a Portuguese team that was accepted for publication (with attributed DOI) or published in 2017 in the highest ISI impact factor journal. Please read the regulations here.
