Welcome to Montreal!
After 2 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, 2020. The research on EPH/ephrins 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/ephrins molecules. Like the first two meetings, this 3rd Congress will provide a platform for EPH/ephrin researchers to exchange 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 America 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/ephrin researchers around the world to the 3rd Congress on the EPH/ephrins System. Come to explore EPH/ephrins, and come to explore Montreal in 2020! See you in Montreal.
