On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are very happy to invite you to attend the 11th European meeting on Intermediate Filaments that will be held in Turku, Finland 9-11 June 2019. This meeting of the intermediate filament community is held every two years in Europe, and attended by established and young researchers and physicians from all over the world.
Turku is located on the south-west coast of mainland Finland at the gateway to one of the largest archipelagos in the world. Turku can be reached by air to Turku airport, or to Helsinki airport with convenient and frequent trains or bus connections. Ferry boats from Stockholm also arrive directly to Turku.
The meeting will be held in Turku at the Radisson Blu Marina Palace hotel located by the Aura river – a few minutes’ walk from the city center, summer boat terraces, parks and restaurants. During the full 3-day meeting, you will have a unique opportunity to learn about the latest developments in intermediate filament research and meet the experts of the field. The conference will be organized back-to-back with a COST action ”EuroCellNet” meeting on intermediate filaments, and a management committee meeting for the action will take place on June 11 in the late afternoon.
The title of this year’s meeting is “Cellular and Mechanical Properties of Intermediate filaments for Health”. Please keep an eye on this website for updates in the forthcoming weeks.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you in Turku in June 2019!
