Scientific Meetings

"A conference is a gathering of important people who singly can do nothing, but together can decide that nothing can be done." - Fred Allen.

Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success." - Henry Ford.


We disagree with the American comedian. We agree The absolute majority of conferences we attended helped us work smarter. Plus, many of them allowed us to visit and revisit some truly inspiring places. Just a few examples:

From The Last in the Second Row: "Thank you, David, for organizing the truly historical meeting. Thank you, Rod et colaborants, for changing our perception of what can be done."
  

On the way to GRCs on Ligand Recognition and Molecular Gating in Il Ciocco, we revisit this old 'alpha-helix',

and the Etrurian town nearby. 

While returning to real world from another GRC site, think hard what to do next to get to the next SUR-real one,

 awarding you with that Moment... before leaving for the US Mainland from an AHA Asia-Pacific conference.

Another inspiring place, not far away from where the XXXIXth World Congress of Physiological Societies was held,

and Milford Sound, costing several hundred$ to photocapture it like this from a plane, during that meeting break time.

While returning from the ESF Conference on Cardiac Electrophysiology on Crete, one finally found his favorite Atlantis.

Cooling down French, British, German, Italian, Swiss et al European and American participants of the 1st International Symposium of the Problem Commission on General & Cell Physiology of RAS, held near the City of Peter The Great.

We are planning our next, expectedly one of the most scientifically educating, expedition to Japan, which will include visiting the currently most advanced femtosecond x-ray free-electron laser facility in the world, at Spring8, the Emerging Advanced Sciences exhibition, etc.
