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.


Due to health concerns related to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease, we have decided to cancel all symposia for this year. It is with deep regret that we took this decision, but out of concern for the health and well-being of all participants, staff and local community, and bearing in mind the international nature of the meeting with potential difficulty of travel, we saw no reasonable alternative.


We will host some of our symposia planned for 2020 as virtual conferences.


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.


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. Due to the Corona pandemic in 2020, the biennial Warren Workshop could not take place, so the organisers agreed on a joint symposium in 2021.
