11th General Meeting of the International Proteolysis Society
´Interfaces in Proteolysis´
29 Sep - 4 Oct 2019, Czech Republic
Training workshops 28-29 Sep 2019, Praha
About the meeting
Proteolysis is a posttranslational modification that impacts virtually every aspect of cellular and organismal physiology. Proteases play key roles in homeostatic protein degradation and protein quality control, regulated cell death, intercellular or intracellular signaling events, microbial and viral replication, host-pathogen interactions, immunity and many other processes. Not surprisingly, many diseases have a targetable proteolytic component, and proteases and their inhibitors are major subjects of drug discovery and development.
To look at biology through the prism of proteolysis we invite you to the 11th General Meeting of the International Proteolysis Society (IPS), which will be held in the scenic town of Mariánské Lázně (Marienbad), Czech Republic, between September 29th and October 4th, 2019. The motto of the meeting is ‘Interfaces in proteolysis’, which denotes our aim to assemble an exciting programme that will explore the roles of proteolysis across biology at the interfaces between health and disease, aqueous and lipidic, ordered and disordered, academic and industrial, or even between the enzymatic and non-enzymatic. On a social level, we believe in the power of direct human interaction and the creative potential of the interfaces between generations, cultures, and scientists both established and aspiring. Conveniently, the venue of Mariánské Lázně (Marienbad) resonates at the interfaces between old and new, Austro-Hungarian nostalgy and the present-time EU membership, German and Czech heritage, aristocratic fin de siècle spa and modern five star hotels.
We hope that you will enjoy the meeting and will leave inspired. Come and enjoy exploring interfaces!
The meeting programme will explore these themes:
- Proteases in protein quality control and homeostasis
- Proteases in programmed cell death
- Proteases in cancer related processes
- Proteases in immunity
- Proteases in parasite biology
- Membrane-associated proteolysis
- Intramembrane proteases
- Protease inhibition as a regulatory and therapeutic mechanism
- Technological platforms and tools
- Emerging topics

Acceptance of applicants for attending the meeting as well as the decision of whether an abstract is accepted for a poster or short talk will be based on scientific merit only. Preference will be given to applicants submitting abstracts with unpublished work.
Abstracts must be a maximum of 250 words, excluding title, authors and affiliations. Template available here.
Posters must be A0 format (841mm width x 1189mm height) or smaller.
Plenary lectures and Lifetime lectures are scheduled for 45 min including question time, invited talks for 30 min, and short talks selected from abstracts for 15 min including question time. Please feel encouraged to bring a poster even if you have been selected for a talk. It will help further discussion with speakers after their talks.
There will be a PC running MS Powerpoint available, and a laser pointer/presenter. If you need to run your presentation from your own laptop make sure it has a compatible video connector (VGA, HDMI, Thunderbolt, Display port), or bring your own adaptor to one of the mentioned interfaces.
