AUC 2017, the 23rd AUC Workshop and Symposium, will be held at the University of Glasgow from 23-28 July, 2017. The meeting will be a satellite to the 19th International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB) and 11th European Biophysical Societies’ Association (EBSA) congress.
The format of the event is a 2.5-day workshop offering parallel, hands-on training in experimental design and the latest AUC data analysis software from the world experts in this area followed by a 2.5-day research symposium on AUC and complementary approaches: methodological development, combination with orthogonal techniques (SAXS, SANS, SPR, MST, SEC-MALLS etc), application in biosciences and material sciences. The additional 0.5 days is used for a social event between the Workshop and Symposium. And a conference dinner will be organised, likely to include a cèilidh!
Glasgow is 75 km from Edinburgh. The travel time between the two cities is approximately 45 minutes, via a frequent (every 15 minutes) train service. Glasgow itself is served by Glasgow airport (7 miles from the University) offering direct flight connections to all major European hubs, plus North America and the Middle East. The city can be reached by train with intercity links to all major UK cities (e.g. London (4.5 hours)). The University of Glasgow is 10 minutes from the city centre by underground train or bus. It has a huge portfolio of affordable accommodation as well as more up-market hotels nearby.
We look forward to welcoming you to Glasgow this summer!
