ECLCB-8 // European Club for Liver Cell Biology
04 – 06 October 2018
Abstract Submission is now closed!
Welcome to ECLCB-8
Dear ECLCB participants,
This is the first announcement for the 8th meeting of the European Club for Liver Cell Biology (ECLCB-8) that will be held from October 4th to 6th, 2018, in Bonn, Germany.
As you well know, ECLCB meetings are held every 2-3 years. The goal of ECLCB meetings is to allow more junior physicians and scientists working in the field of cell biology and pathophysiology of the liver to share data, experience and reagents, and to create new networks for international collaborations. In the last 16 years, ECLCB meetings have been attended by EASL members from several EU countries and also by colleagues from the US.
Bonn is not only well known as the birth place of Ludwig van Beethoven, but is also located close to the romantic Rhine river valley, famous for its medieval past and many castles. The meeting venue is right on the banks of the Rhine with a spectacular view of the ancient Drachenfels castle ruins. The city of Bonn, as the former capital city, adheres to the motto “The best way forward here is through international collaboration, transnational integration, and – particularly in Europe – cross-border cooperation in as many areas as possible.” This also reflects the spirit of ECLBC.
The meeting will begin in the afternoon of Thursday, October 4th, and will continue until noon on Saturday, October 6th. Following the tradition of previous ECLCB meetings, the final program of 30-40 oral presentations will be designed based on submitted abstracts. As it is the tradition of ECLCB meetings to promote young scientists, the majority of the presenters should be PhD students, clinical fellows and post-doc fellows. The number of attendees will be limited to 100 persons. Therefore, early expressions of interest are strongly encouraged. Moderators of the sessions will be the organizers of prior ECLCB meetings.
The abstract submission is already possible.

Looking forward to the 8th ECLCB,
