The European Workshop on Cell Death is approaching its Twelfth Edition. Again the EWCD will be held in Fiuggi (Italy) at the Ambasciatori Hotel, from the 10th to the 15th of May 2020. The upcoming workshop will focus on basic as well as translational research into cell death, inflammation and cancer. In the past, work presented these workshops has aided in targeting cell death pathways for disease such as cancer, and we are confident that the EWCD meetings will continue to be an excellent platform for the exchange of innovative ideas and cutting-edge science.
The primary goal of this workshop continues to be promoting early career scientists by providing an environment that allows for unpublished data to be shared without the fear of being “scooped”. Many productive collaborations have directly arisen from this workshop and we are determined to continue to foster a collaborative environment, thereby driving science forward, in the upcoming workshops. Approximately 150 participants will be selected to attend the meeting based solely on the quality of their submitted abstract and the vast majority of participants will present their data through oral presentation. The EWCD is highly international in nature, drawing in participants from all corners of the globe. Moreover, the isolated location of the meeting promotes further interactions beyond the lecture hall during mealtimes and in the evening. A rather unique aspect of the EWCD is that even leading researchers are selected to attend based on their abstract and must pay their own attendance and registration costs. Nevertheless, attesting to the cutting-edge science presented, the meeting continues to attract many leaders in the fields of cell death, inflammation, infection and cancer.
The organization of this meeting is done wholly on a voluntary basis and
all costs including accommodation in a double room and meals are
included in the registration fee of 500€ (750€ for a single room).
The 12th EWCD meeting is organised by
Simone di Franco (University of Palermo), Ana-Jesus Garcia-Saez (University of Tübingen), Stephen Tait (The Beatson Institute, UK), Lynn Wong (University of Zurich, Switzerland), Mads Gyrd-Hansen (University of Oxford, UK), Michael Hahne (CNRS Montpellier, France)
