The FEBS Congress is one of the most visible activities of FEBS. As one of the largest bio-congresses in Europe, featuring approx. 2500 attendees, the Congress provides a platform for international scientific exchange and showcases the newest developments in biochemistry, molecular biology and related areas. The Congress comprises plenary lectures presented by outstanding scientists including Nobel Laureates, a range of subject-specific symposia to provide the latest updates in different areas of bioscience research, extensive poster communications, and a variety of interesting workshops and other activities on related topics. The Congress is held annually in countries that have a Constituent Society of FEBS.
The Congress is also immediately preceded by the FEBS Young Scientists' Forum (YSF), a lively gathering of over 100 PhD students and young postdocs, whose attendance at this event and the ensuing FEBS Congress is funded by FEBS YSF fellowships.
The 2014 FEBS Congress will be held as a joint event with EMBO as the FEBS–EMBO 2014 Conference in Paris, hosted by the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, from 30th August to 4 September 2014. The 2014 FEBS YSF will take place from 27th to 30th August.
