The conference will take place from 20 - 22 October 2016 at IMB, Mainz, Germany. Most of the conference will be dedicated to plenary lectures from invited speakers as well as short talks. Short talks will be invited based on submitted abstracts and speakers will be chosen to ensure the topics presented are at the cutting edge of research and are complementary to the plenary lectures. There will also be a poster session where selected participants can present their research. The schedule also includes social activities, such as a welcome reception, lunch and coffee breaks as well as an afternoon sightseeing excursion and conference dinner. These events will ensure that there will be plenty of opportunities for informal discussions and networking.
