2nd Cell Death, Cell Stress and Metabolism Conference

From Basic Mechanisms to Novel Treatment Options


27 May 2019 - 30 May 2019

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Chairs

Synopsis

The interplay between cell death, cell stress and metabolism plays a crucial role in shaping normal turnover of tissues, in sensing of danger posed by pathogens or other damage and the immunological response that is mounted to response to them. At this conference we will discuss the basic biological principles that govern cell death, cell stress and metabolism. We will also cover how cellular stress and alterations in metabolism influence the cellular death programs such as apoptosis, necroptosis, ferroptosis and others.  Importantly, this conference aims to become the go-to forum at which the most current and up-to-date therapeutic avenues in the fields of cell death, cell stress and metabolism will be presented and discussed. 

For those interested, this meeting follows the Metabolism in Health and Disease Conferencetaking place from 24 - 27 May 2019 at the same venue. 

Student Offer

Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity for students! Register an academic at the standard rate of $1,775 and bring a student for only $700. Unfortunately, Postdocs are not eligible. Both registration packages include; accommodation for the 27, 28 and 29 May 2019 (on a shared basis for students) and food and beverage package for the conference period.

Location

Originally a bustling mining town known as the ‘Las Peñas’ in the 19th century, Puerto Vallarta is framed by the stunning mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental of Jalisco and the immense Mexican Pacific. This fascinating destination with red roofs, golden sunsets, cobbled streets and beautiful beaches possesses everything that makes for an incredible place to visit.

Puerto Vallarta’s art offering is amazing, from crafts found in the flea market to the fleeting creations made by artists with the sand on the beach. Its art galleries, boardwalk, calm Banderas Bay waters - loved by scuba diving enthusiasts and bustling nightlife bare some of the contrasts that Vallarta holds.

There are many activities you can enjoy during your fee time such as visiting the El Salado estuary, going on horseback up the Quimixto waterfall or taking a tour of Banderas Bay. You may also like to explore the Jardín Botánico de Vallarta where you will find orchids, bromeliads, agaves, wild palms and fern grottos along the paths of this gorgeous nature park.

Group Activities

Snorkel Trip – Tuesday 28th May 2019

We have arranged an exciting group activity for the Cell Death participants (accompanying guests welcome). Please find the details, timings and price for the activity below. Please note you are required to sign up by Thursday 18th April 2019 and unfortunately, we cannot accept sign ups after this date nor onsite. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Transportation will be provided from the hotel to the Marina where you will board the boat. You will sail for approximately one hour along the beautiful Banderas Bay to the Los Arcos site. This protected marine preserve has several small islands offering reefs, tunnels, caves, and arches teeming with marine life. You will have an opportunity to snorkel, paddle board or kayak, exploring the water and its amazing array of marine life. Be prepared to see schools of angel fish, puffer fish, cornet fish and parrot fish that feed in the shallow reefs of Los Arcos. Don’t forget to keep your eyes open for octopus, lobster and small spotted eagle rays, which are seen frequently year-round.

The final cost will be dependent upon final numbers; therefore, we can only provide a guide at this stage. The cost will range from US$98 - $US144 per person. Payment will be required in advance of the trip and reservation and payment information will follow once we have confirmed numbers.

Oral Presenters

We have several oral opportunities available at this meeting. To be considered for a talk, please register for the conference and upload your abstract when prompted to do so. You will be able to monitor the status of your abstract through your Fusion account and you will also receive an email if you are successful or unsuccessful.

Please use the abstract template provided (see below) and ensure your abstract is no longer than one page in length.

If you are accepted for a talk, we recommend you check our website regularly as the conference approaches. Regular programme updates will be released under the ‘Programme’ tab on the conference website.

Your Presentation

On the day of your presentation please make yourself known to our AV technician who will be present in the conference room. We advise running through your presentation at least 30minutes prior to your session commencing to ensure your slides and any videos or animations appear as expected. We prefer our speakers to run their presentation from the master PC or Mac, however, if you prefer to use your own laptop then please notify us prior to the session. A HDMI or VGA cable is usually available on the podium.

Our AV technician will apply your microphone and provide a combined slide advancer and laser pointer.

We ask all speakers to adhere to their time slots and respect their fellow presenters. A visual traffic light aide will be available to warn presenters as their time decreases.

Please make sure your presentation adheres to the following guidelines.

Aspect Ratio: On Screen Show 16:9 (we can also accommodate 4:3 presentations)

We have several poster opportunities available at this meeting. To be considered for a poster presentation, please register for the conference and upload your abstract when prompted to do so. You will be able to monitor the status of your abstract through your Fusion account and you will also receive an email if you are successful or unsuccessful.

Please use the abstract template provided (see below) and ensure your abstract is no longer than one page in length.

Our poster boards can accommodate a maximum poster size of A0 (1189H x 841W mm), portrait in orientation. Posters exceeding this size may not fit on the poster boards provided and therefore we may be unable to display your poster, so please kindly keep to these measurements.

Displaying & Presenting Your Poster

Please bring your poster to registration and hand this to a member of the Fusion team. They will advise of your poster number and display your poster for you. 

Your poster will remain on display for the duration of the conference, allowing presenters to take advantage of the refreshment breaks and free time for valuable networking opportunities, in addition to the official poster session.

Please check the programme and note the date and time of the poster session(s). Your poster will be judged during the poster session and prizes will be awarded at the Gala Dinner.

Posters will be taken down by the Fusion team and will be ready for collection at the Fusion desk on the final day of the conference.
