Logótipo da conferência, sobre um fundo branco

THE meeting place for Mobility Management practitioners and experts all over Europe.

This course introduces the field of island biogeography, a discipline that has long influenced other research areas such as macroecology, community ecology, evolution and conservation biology, covering its main aspects.

An overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets.

This course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems.

How to predict the three-dimensional structure of nucleic acid and proteins from their sequence and use the acquired knowledge to improve or create new methodologies in molecular biology research and diagnostics?

Representação da cidade de Lisboa, acompanhada do título da conferência

The 22nd in the series of triennial conferences which bring together the Particle and Nuclear Physics communities.
