On behalf of the scientific committee we invite you to the 3rd Annual Meeting in Conservation Genetics which will be held from 26-28 February 2018 at the Natural History Museum Vienna. Your contributions will inform on exciting conservation genetic research and emerging new developments. Our objectives are to provide a platform for personal exchange for scientists, practitioners and stakeholders interested in conservation genetics and to establish a network in conservation genetics in Central Europe and beyond. Keynotes will be given by renowned scientists from within the European conservation genetic community.We welcome researchers at all levels of their scientific career, practitioners and stakeholders to exchange results and discuss new ideas in conservation genetics. We are looking forward to welcoming you in February! ... [Information of the supplier]
The "14th European Fusarium Seminar" will take place from April 8-11, 2018 in Tulln, Austria. It will be jointly organized by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU) and the Austrian Association of Molecular Life Sciences and Biotechnology, in cooperation with the International Society of Mycotoxicology. The EFS14 will be an excellent opportunity to present and discuss the progress made in all fields related to Fusarium research, ranging from medical research to plant pathology and from mycotoxin research to mitigation strategies. Topics like molecular taxonomy and detection of plant and animal pathogens, climate change or crop related changes in the Fusarium species and chemotype spectrum will be covered. "Host resistance genomics, genetics and plant breeding" will deal with studies about host resistance mechanisms (QTL and association mapping, transcriptomics, etc.), while work with a focus on the chemistry of host-pathogen interaction will be covered in the session "Fusarium secondary metabolites and metabolomics of Fusarium-host plant interactions". The session "Fusarium mycotoxins: toxicology, metabolism and remediation" will present new insights into classical Fusarium mycotoxins and toxin metabolism, but also emerging compounds and interactions of Fusarium metabolites will be included. A strong focus will be on strategies to detoxify and utilize contaminated grain. Last but not least "Integrated Fusarium management" will address topics ranging from forecasting, epidemiology, agronomic practice to avoid Fusarium infection pre-and postharvest, to problems like emerging fungicide resistance. ...

With its third international conference "GGBN 2018" taking place in Vienna from May 22nd to 25th, GGBN along with the accompanying organizing institutions will focus on topics related to the exploration of the wealth of diversity that is currently stored in biodiversity biobanks worldwide. Surrounding the main theme of "The International Day for Biological Diversity" proclaimed by the United Nations, sessions will cover agricultural, forest and environmental biodiversity and their characterization by state-of-the-art genomic, phenomic and molecular tools. This characterization process is a substantial part of any long-term strategy to ensure the preservation of biodiversity and thereby to secure the foundation for subsistence of mankind. ...

In 2018, the University of Natural Resources and Life Science, Vienna (BOKU), hosts the 48th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The meeting will take place from 10-14 September 2018 in Vienna, Austria, at the former campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business (Alte WU), Augasse 6. In times of changing conditions ecological research is facing new challenges. On the one hand complexity of the biosphere is increasingly reduced by human activities, on the other hand human activities aggravate predictability of future developments. This is reflected by our motto of this year, "Ecology - meeting the scientific challenges of a complex world". ... [Information of the supplier]
The German Conference on Bioinformatics (GCB) is an annual, international conference devoted to all areas of bioinformatics. Recent meetings attracted a multinational audience with 250 – 300 participants each year. The meeting is open to all fields of bioinformatics and is meant as a platform for the German and European bioinformatics community. The upcoming GCB will be organised by the Austrian Bioinformatics Platform ATBI and will be held at the University of Vienna. The conference will focus on computation in life sciences and aims to showcase applications and opportunities beyond. Spearheading scientists will be presenting along with young researchers and industry representatives. The first day September 25 is reserved for workshops and satellite meetings. The main conference will take place from September 26-28. The schedule will allow for fly-in on Wed and fly-out on Fri. For the first time ever the GCB will be held outside of Germany. While Vienna is mostly known for its impressive buildings from various architectural styles that no tourist should miss out, it also is the biggest University city in the German-speaking area and one of the hubs for life sciences in Europe. ...
