13th European Biophysics Conference – EBSA 2021

Vienna, Austria

The scientific programme of this conference covers most biophysical research directions, including single-molecule biophysics, high resolution optical and force microscopy, ion channels and transporters, lipids and membranes, structural biology, theoretical biophysics, cell mechanics, and many other subjects. Two symposia are directly related to ion channels: “Channels and Ca2+ Signaling” and “Membrane transporters & channels”.


September 8-12, 2021

Ion Channels and Transporters in Immunity, Inflammation and Antitumor Immunity

Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA

This 74th Annual Meeting of the Society of General Physiologists will be the first international conference fully dedicated to the topic of Ion Channels and Transporters in the immune system. This meeting will provide a unique opportunity for immunologists and ion channel physiologists to discuss the latest advances in the regulation, function and physiological roles of ion channels in innate and adaptive immunity. Leading scientists from academia and industry will present their latest research, and the organizers are especially keen on welcoming trainees and new investigators with budding interests in this rapidly emerging arena.


June 26-28, 2022

Channelopathy 2022

Hôtel Le Concorde, 1225 Cours du Général-de Montcalm, Québec QC (QC), Canada

Channelopathy 2022 will place emphasis on broad scientific themes shared across ion channel types and diseases.


July 16-20, 2022

The International Gap Junction Conference

A Coruña, Spain,

The International Gap Junction Conference brings together a diverse international community of basic science researchers that focus on connexins and pannexins. The meeting topics include the cell biology/interactomes/signaling/trafficking, channel structure and function/biophysics of connexins and pannexins and their role in cancer, inflammation, tissue regeneration, cardiovascular function, development/reproduction, inherited diseases, the nervous system and sensory systems.



Ion Channel & Cancer Meeting + Calcium Signaling In Cancer Workshop ECS session

Lille, France

This meeting will be dedicated to exploring ion channel regulation from molecular biophysics to physiology and clinical applications in cancer biology.


Workshop postponed and being converted to an online conference

International Ion Channel Aquaporin Workshop

Canberra, Australia

The first international workshop focused on sharing knowledge about ion channel aquaporins, their roles in biology and their application in boosting food security.



EMBO|FEBS Lecture Course on Ion channels and transporters: From molecule to man

Erice, Italy

This course is designed to provide an overview of the latest aspects of ion channel and transporter research. Topics covered will include structural, functional and computational aspects, as well as more general themes, such as publishing and the role of women in science. Additionally, the course will feature didactic tutorials and some hands-on exercises. There will be ample opportunities for discussion and ad hoc interactions between students and lecturers. Lastly, the small town of Erice provides a relaxed and beautiful setting for the course.
