The unifying theme of EBEC

Sir John E Walker at MiPsummer 2012, UK
Bookmark EBEC2024 with shadow.png
The central unifying theme of EBEC is Bioenergetics and by extension, chemiosmosis. Thus, essential topics for consideration for inclusion in the programme are oxidative phosphorylation in bacteria and mitochondria, photosynthesis, transmembrane transport of metabolites and other small molecules, passage of proteins through membrane barriers, bacterial motility and cell death via apoptosis and other mechanisms involving the mitochondria. As you are aware, in recent years great strides forward in understanding have been made in most of these fields. Thus, we recommend that these topics should provide the core of the programme. That is not to say that related topics such as mitochondrial diseases arising from mutations in both mt-DNA and nuclear genes, involvement of mitochondria in ageing and cancer and related medical issues should be excluded.
With best wishes,
John, Bob, Marten, and Peter

By car
Using Austria’s motorways requires a vignette, which can be purchased at petrol stations for either ten days (EUR 9,60), two months (EUR 28,20) or the current calender year (93,80). Federal highways are toll-free but might be time consuming.

National organizing committee

The national organizing committee will be established shortly and listed on the website.
Our effort to organize EBEC2024 renews the concept of establishing the Austrian Bioenergetics Group or perhaps a German-Swiss-Austrian Bioenergetics DE-CH-AT Group. We welcome our colleagues to join:
» Bioenergetics Vienna: “Palais Ephrussi” in the city center of Vienna, sponsored by the B&C Privatstiftung - Club der Houskapreisträger.
