About FEBS Congresses
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 photo above is from the IUBMB–FEBS Congress in Sevilla, Spain in September 2012.
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 awards. In addition, FEBS supports participation of a large number of young scientists in its annual Congress through the FEBS Bursaries scheme. In 2012, a FEBS Fellows' Forum, bringing together senior recipients of FEBS Long-Term and Return-to-Europe Fellowships, also took place ahead of the Congress; this will be organized again in 2014.
