Workshop “Calcium Signaling in Aging and Neurodegenerative Diseases”

18-20 September 2019 | Coimbra Tryp Hotel - Coimbra



Dear colleagues and friends,


The organizing committee is pleased to welcome you at the 8th Workshop of the European Calcium Society (ECS): “Calcium 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 and changes 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 ample discussion between young and experienced researchers is expected.

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.


The meeting will take place in Tryp Hotel, Coimbra. More informations about the workshop here:


Important dates:

- 30th June, 2019: Early-bird registration

- 31th July, 2019: Deadline for registration and abstract submission



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

NEUBIAS Training Schools 12 &13 @ Porto

14-17 October 2019 | IBMC/i3S and INESC TEC, Porto 



Dear Bioimaging colleague,

NEUBIAS, the Network of European BioImage Analysts (, is delighted to announce two new Training Schools on BioImage Analysis:

  • TS12 for Early Career Investigators (life scientists and facility staff).
  • TS13 for Facility Staff (staff only, already comfortable with analysis workflows; focus is scripting with FIJI & Python)



The focus of the trainings will be on construction and automation of BioImage Analysis workflows, using as examples more than one toolbox and different exercises. The schools will be held in Porto, 14-17th of October 2019, hosted by IBMC/i3S and INESC TEC

NEUBIAS schools are an excellent opportunity to learn from many experts in Bioimage Analysis (we are expecting >20 specialists at the event) and “…a great mix of intensive learning and community networking” (former trainee testimonial!). The schools will include practical sessions and seminars on ImageJ for analysis and publication, scripting/macros in ImageJ and Python and session on ethics in image analysis and “work on own data”.




Within the COST framework (funders of NEUBIAS), we will offer up to 7 travel grants per school to applicants who qualify.



More information about schools (programme & trainers) and venue, travel & lodge available at our website:



Local organizers: Paula Sampaio and João Paulo Cunha

Super-Resolution Microscopy Workshop

04-05 September 2019 |  iMM – Instituto de Medicina Molecular João Lobo Antunes, Lisbon



Super-resolution microscopy represents a group of recent techniques that can break the diffraction-limited resolution barrier (less than 200 nm). This workshop will introduce the principles and present the most recent advances of super-resolution microscopy, focusing on structured illumination microscopy (SIM). The workshop is designed for cell biologists with prior experience in light microscopy that are interested in using super-resolution for their research. It will consist of lectures focusing on the theoretical understanding of super-resolution microscopy and practical hands-on sessions in the microscopes, where participants will learn how to correctly set-up and acquire super-resolved images. The workshop will feature the new Zeiss Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM and will include time to image participants samples.

The workshop is open and free of charge to all CAML members and external participants.

The hands-on component of the workshop is limited to 20 participants (selection based on the workshop application letter).
