The 2nd Workshop on Molecular Communications is being held in Dublin City, Ireland on the 9th to 11th of May 2017. Following on from the great success of the first workshop, this workshop will provide strategic development of Molecular Communications research in Europe with a focus on broadening the reach of the community into border disciplines. Disciplines we wish to attract speakers from include (but are not limited to) :-

  • Microfluidics, Synthetic Biology, Pharmacology, Inter/Intra Cellular Communication, Chemical Networks

The workshop will be made up of a set of high profile invited guest speakers that will deliver inspirational talks on Molecular Communications within their discipline. This will provide the research community an opportunity to meet and share their research, vision and experience in the area of Molecular Communications across disciplines.

If you are interested acting as an invited speaker, please register your interest and submit a short abstract to circle@fet-circle.eu.

VENUE

Dublin City was founded as a Viking settlement in 988 AD, the Kingdom of Dublin became Ireland’s principal city following the Norman invasion. Now Dublin is a vibrant city, home to the Silicone Docks located at the Grand Canal, which has the highest concentration of high-tech companies outside the US.

1st CIRCLE Workshop on Molecular Communications

CIRCLE 2016 – Cambridge, UK, 11th – 12th April 2016 

The 1st CIRCLE Workshop on Molecular Communications is being held at Cambridge, UK on the 11th and 12th of April 2016. The workshop will focus on three core objectives related to the strategic development of Molecular Communications research in Europe.

  1. Converging towards a common Research Agenda for Molecular Communications.
  2. Supporting Young Researchers in Molecular Communications.
  3. Stimulating engagement with Industry.

The Workshop will also run three expert lead sessions focusing on hot topics in the area of Molecular Communications. This will provide the research community an opportunity to meet and share their research, vision and experience in the area of Molecular Communications. This workshop also aims to attract other complementary disciplines to this emerging research domain, such as synthetic biology and microfluidics.
