Third congress on the Eph/ephrin system

June 1 and 2, 2022. Montreal, Canada

Dear colleagues:
  after two successful meetings in Parma, Italy, the Congress on the EPH/ephrins System is moving to Montreal, Canada, for its 3rd biannual meeting from June 1 to 2, 2022.

A DISCLAIMER:  Although we are actively organizing the Congress for June 1 and 2, 2022, this date is still subject to change. As of now (November 2021), our Research Center does not allow us to receive foreign delegates for conferences until February 2022. We expect this restriction will be loosened soon. However, please do not book your hotel and flight tickets yet. We will confirm this date of the Congress in mid-January 2022 finally. Please stay tuned.

This Congress was originally scheduled for June 1 and 2, 2020. Many of you have already registered for the meeting. Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, we have a long intermission (exactly two years) before we can reschedule it for June 1 and 2, 2022. We are sure you are all eager to come to Montreal to exchange the new findings in your research and to meet your friends and colleagues, old and new. We hope this time, the new scheduled date will not be further delayed due to a worsening Covid-19 wave.

We are working on the new hotel contracts. Once they are finalized, we will reopen the “Accommodation” page.

For those who have already registered, you do not need to do anything now but stay tuned to our newsletters which will give you updates about the meeting. The registration link is currently inactivated and will be reopened in April 2022 for those who will participate in the meeting but have not registered yet.

The research on EPH/EFN started from the central nervous system and then spread to almost all other systems in biology. Currently, more than 500 labs in the world are studying different aspects of the EPH/EFN molecules. Like the first two meetings, this 3rd Congress will provide a platform for Eph/EFN researchers to exchange the latest information in the field, get inspiration from unexpected findings by colleagues, and establish collaboration all around the world.

Montreal has two major universities, the University of Montreal and the McGill University, each having its own brand-new affiliated super hospitals, both of which were constructed in the recent 1-2 years.  CHUM is the one affiliated to the University of Montreal (CHUM stands for Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal). The Congress will be held in the modern conference facility of the CHUM Research Center. The auditorium has a capacity of 220 seats, and the adjacent spacious agora is available for poster sessions, meals, and coffee breaks.

Montreal is the second-largest French-speaking city in the world, after Paris. It has the charm of France mixed with a modern North American flavor. June is one of the most beautiful months to explore the history, culture, and scenery of Montreal.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we extend our warm welcome to all the EPH/EFN researchers around the world to the 3rd Congress on the EPH/ephrins System. Come to explore EPH/ephrins, and come to explore Montreal in 2022! See you in Montreal.
