Upcoming SymposiA

The Beilstein-Institut organizes and supports scientific exchange between researchers by regularly held symposia. The number of participants is limited providing a convivial atmosphere for the ready exchange of thoughts and ideas.


The Glyco-Bioinformatics Symposium aims at
establishing a network of experts in glycochemistry, biology, bioinformatics and computer sciences. In addition, it provides a platform to discuss the latest outcomes presented by the MIRAGE Commission.


The Beilstein Enzymology Symposia series provide not only a platform for the presentation of the latest findings in mechanistic and systemic enzymology but also for discussing standards for measuring and publication of experimental data such as proposed by the STRENDA Commission.

Open Science

The Beilstein Open Science Symposia series brings together research scientists, data scientists, publishers, funders and other interested parties to review critically the future developing in the context of the highly interconnected, data driven lab and the new infrastructures that are being set up.
