Calcium Signaling in Aging and Neurodegenerative Diseases

Coimbra, 18-20 September 2019

Welcome Message

Dear colleagues and friends,
The organizing committee is pleased to welcome you at the 8th Workshop of the European Calcium Society (ECS): “Cell Signaling in Aging and Neurodegenerative Diseases”.   
 
An exciting meeting with a multifaceted and highly interesting scientific program was prepared to create a unique opportunity to meet and discuss the latest research advances in understanding calcium signalling in the brain underlying aging and neurodegenerative disorders.
The scientific program is structured into four tracks dedicated to synaptic calcium, mitochondrial and endoplasmic reticulum calcium, calcium signaling in glia and stem cells and a special session dedicated to technological innovations in calcium imaging, which will be followed by a hands-on session, for interested participants.
These sessions will be complemented by two poster parties where we expect ample discussion between young and experienced researchers. Short oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts.

ECS and local organizers would like to encourage young scientists in the calcium fields to submit their abstracts and present their latest work.

We look very much forward to welcoming all of you in Coimbra!
