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.



Since 2009 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.



This Beilstein Nanotechnology Symposium is organized Shelley A. Claridge, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, and Liberato Manna, Italian Institute of Technology, Genoa.
