Upcoming Conferences and Workshops
June 26 — 29, 2017
The 13th Annual International Conference of the Metabolomics Society will be held in Brisbane from June 26-29, 2017. Check back for updates in the coming months at http://metabolomics2017.org.
Metabolism and Metabolomics: Disease Models and Model Organisms
May 10 - 12, 2017
The Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences at the Pennsylvania State University Park Campus
Details are as follows:
The 2017 Penn State Summer Symposium in Molecular Biology is titled Metabolism and Metabolomics: Disease Models and Model Organisms. The symposium will assemble prominent researchers interested in metabolism and leading investigators using and developing technology for analysis of metabolomes. Esteemed investigators will communicate the latest findings in diverse areas of metabolic biology including energetics, obesity, aging, effects of metabolic perturbations in cancer and other disease, as well as neural control of metabolism. Investigators renowned for their contributions to technology development for analysis of metabolomes and metabolic flux will also present. The 2017 Symposium will bring together top names in the field, and will thereby provide access to some outstanding lectures. The Symposium is open to members of the academic, biomedical, and pharmaceutical communities.

May 17 - 18, 2017
The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA
Venue: The Ohio State University
The Ohio Union
1739 N. High St, Columbus, OH 43210
The purpose of this two-day event is to disseminate state-of-the-art knowledge in the field of food and nutritional metabolomics and foster networking and collaboration among colleagues and industry partners.

Workflow4Experimenters 2017: International Course on Galaxy Workflows for Metabolomics
May 29 - June 2, 2017
Paris (Pasteur Institute)
Overview: Processing, statistical analysis, and annotation of metabolomics data is a complex task for experimenters since it involves many steps and requires a good knowledge of both the methodology and software tools. The Workflow4metabolomics.org (W4M) online infrastructure provides a user-friendly and high-performance environment with advanced computational modules for building, running, and sharing complete workflows for LC-MS, GC-MS, and NMR analysis (Giacomoni et al, 2015).
Objectives: During this one-week course, participants will learn how to use the W4M infrastructure to analyze their own dataset. Morning sessions will be dedicated to methodology and tools. Afternoon sessions will be devoted to tutoring. Each participant will be paired with a tutor who will help him/her prepare the data and assist him/her during each analysis step.
Target audience: LC-MS, GC-MS and NMR experimenters (e.g. biologists, chemists).
September 25 - 27, 2017
Announcing MOVISS: Bio and Data
A problem driven meeting aimed at bioinformaticians, biochemists, statisticians and those who handle and interpret metabolomics data
When: Sept 25th-27th 2017
Where: Vorau, Austria
Not just an ordinary conference, where people present work they have already done, MOVISS is centered on identifying and problem solving current challenges relating to metabolomics data handling by getting everyone in the room discussing it. Want to be at the forefront of solving some of the major bottlenecks in the Metabolomics Revolution – see you at MOVISS!
SMMAP2017: Mass Spectrometry, Metabolomics and Proteomics Analysis
October 2 - 5, 2017
Disney Resort, France
The French Society of Mass Spectrometry, the French Network of Metabolomics and Fluxomics and the French Society of Electrophoresis and Proteomic Analysis are happy to introduce the first joint conference SMMAP 2017 (Mass Spectrometry, Metabolomics and Proteomic Analysis 2017). The local organising committee will welcome you at the New York Hotel® (Disneyland® Paris, Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy) from Tuesday 3 to Thursday 5 October 2017. A satellite metting will be organised on Monday 2 October, for training activities, round tables and a young researchers's meeting.
This unique event, which will host more than 450 participants, will foster interdisciplinarity, as well as scientific exchanges between communities that traditionally meet separately. It will also be an opportunity to broaden our knowledge, share experiences and create new links, both scientific and personal. The conference will also welcome scientists from the private sector, working on instrumentation, sample preparation and data processing.
