The meeting’s main themes are: 1) Develop novel approaches for studying calcium signaling in cells; 2) Decipher the role of calcium signatures in health and disease; 3) Understand how membrane contact sites control cellular homeostasis.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • Novel approaches for studying Ca2+ signaling in cells
  • Membrane contact sites - novel signaling hubs
  • Ca2+ influx pathways
  • Ca2+ and contraction
  • Molecular mechanisms of Ca2+channels and signaling proteins
  • Neuronal and glial Ca2+ signaling
  • Ca2+ signaling at the interface between ER and mitochondria or lysosomes

In addition to the closing keynote lecture by Richard Lewis, PhD (Stanford University), this conference will feature  major sessions with estimated 35 oral presentations, 15 short talks selected from submitted abstracts, and 3 poster sessions. 


All sessions and presentations will be live in a virtual environment. View the tentative program agenda here.
