th International Conference on Ionic Liquids in Separation and Purification Technology

Location : Melia Sitges, Sitges, Spain

Conference Date : 08 - 11 Sep 2019

Paper Submission Deadline : 15 Mar 2019

About Conferences :

This meeting will build on the momentum from the previous ILSEPT meetings held in 2011, 2014 and 2017. As we see there is a growing interest in deep eutectic solvents, that by some people are seen as alternatives for ionic liquids, we decided for this 2019 edition of ILSEPT to include the subject in the scope of the conference.
The aim of the 4th International Conference on Ionic Liquids in Separation and Purification Technology is to provide a forum for researchers in academia and industry to share and discuss their cutting edge results on the use of ionic liquids in separation applications. This meeting will build on the momentum from the previous ILSEPT meetings held in 2011, 2014 and 2017. As we see there is a growing interest in deep eutectic solvents, that by some people are seen as alternatives for ionic liquids, we decided for this 2019 edition of ILSEPT to include the subject in the scope of the conference.

Ionic liquids and deep eutectic solvents are exciting classes of solvents that possess unique properties. Ionic liquids are known for their negligible vapor pressure, wide liquid range, tunable solvating power, and high thermal stability. Due to these special properties, they have found a wide range of applications in fields as diverse as petrochemicals, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, hydrometallurgy, environmental remediation and nuclear sciences. In all these fields ionic liquids can provide novel intensified separation and purification technologies that enable major contributions towards establishing the sustainable processes required for the future process industry. Clear examples are their increased solvating power for extractive separations, ability to separate azeotropic mixtures and their ability to dissolve a wide range of natural materials such as cellulose, carbohydrates and lignin. For many of these applications, now also the use of deep eutectic solvents has been reported, and with their unique properties obtained through hydrogen bonding they open up a new window of opportunities.The scientific programme will offer plenary lectures, submitted oral presentations and poster sessions. Outside the session lecture theatres, you will also find numerous exhibitors presenting their contributions.

Spatial Statistics 2019

5th Spatial Statistics conference:Towards Spatial Data Science

Location : Sitges, Spain

Conference Date : 10 - 13 Jul 2019

Paper Submission Deadline : 18 Jan 2019

About Conferences :

Welcome to the 5th Spatial Statistics conference, which will be held in Sitges (near to Barcelona), Spain, from 10 – 13 July 2019 under the theme Towards Spatial Data Science.The conference will bring together leading scientists in the field of spatial statistics to debate and discuss how to make statistically sound decisions and judgments in the domain of spatial data science.Issues of statistical learning, but also common methods for spatial and spatio-temporal interpolation, stochastic geometry, classifications, tessellation, networks, point processes, random sets, including Bayesian modelling will be presented in the new context of spatial data science.The registration and abstract submission systems will open shortly.

The Workshop and Welcome Reception will be held on 10 July and the actual conference will start on 11 July 2019.We are at the start of a large and unprecedented expansion of our information provision and use. Both the volume and the complexity of available data will increase, creating a great potential and demand for scientific and technological innovations.In addition to “traditional” data, unverified spatial data is now available from volunteers, dynamic data from moving sources, streams of remote sensing images and distributed data from various types of sensors, including gadgets monitoring the function of human bodies, high-tech engine monitors and low-cost, distributed environmental sensors.
Of particular scientific interest and societal importance are spatially referenced data with temporal dependence, i.e. space-time data. The increasing volume, complexity, heterogeneity, uncertainty and interdependence of space-time data are rapidly outrunning current methods of analysis.This big-data era is creating research challenges for many fields of science and engineering. Emerging questions have a different focus, depending on the scientific discipline in which they are born and reflecting a significant variability in the nature of big-data problems, in spite of the many common elements.

Crucial developments in this context are new scalable methods, design algorithms, and implement software for big space-time data that will:

  1. Capitalize on local models and sparse matrix structures
  2. Allow for fast simulation of space-time processes
  3. Include new data types (including streams of spatial data, space-time point processes, point patterns on networks, and trajectories)

This results in the domain of spatial data science. The conference will provide a platform to debate and discuss how to make statistically sound decisions and judgments in the domain of spatial data science

Cell Symposium: Regulatory RNAs

Cell Symposium: Regulatory RNAs

Location : Berlin, Germany

Conference Date : 12 - 14 May 2019

Paper Submission Deadline : 25 Jan 2019

About Conferences :

Between the DNA blueprint and the protein machines it encodes lies a wealth of RNA molecules. These RNAs serve to increase genetic diversity, but as we have also come to appreciate, RNAs also serve a much richer function and can take on regulatory roles themselves. New methods that allow analysis at the single-cell and single-molecule levels have provided us with a greater ability to understand the significance of these functions with greater precision than before.Join us in Berlin in 2019 for a conference focused on the regulatory roles of RNAs. Topics will include generation of diversity through RNA-mediated processes, diversity among RNAs themselves through processes such as RNA editing, and analysis of gene expression at the single-cell level.

We hope to see you there!

Cell Symposium - SCTB

Cell Symposium - Single Cells : Technology to Biology

Location : Singapore

Conference Date : 24 - 26 Feb 2019

Paper Submission Deadline : 12 Oct 2018

About Conferences :

A revolution is underway, unleashed by the study of single cells, in our understanding of cell identity, diversity, development, and function.  The emerging technologies for single-cell “omics” for the study of genomes, epigenomes, transcriptomes, and proteomes, are becoming increasingly widespread, with some of the most exciting advances enabling multimodal analyses and systems biology assays that perturb and record at single-cell resolution.  Perhaps even more far reaching are single-cell in situ sequencing and imaging-based methods that offer an unparalleled perspective on the biology of individual cells within tissues. The application of this knowledge for precision medicine is also not far from reality, as one can easily imagine a time when a standard blood test or biopsy will include single-cell profiling to aid in diagnosis or to monitor treatment.

The overarching goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for sharing and disseminating cutting-edge technologies, biological insights, and biomedical applications in the field of single-cell analysis.  Come join us in Singapore, a global crossroads and scientific hub, for stimulating discussions and to build bridges between the expanding and interconnected international efforts in single-cell biology.
