Welcome to EMC 2013
The 42nd European Muscle Conference (www.emc2013.nl) will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from September 21–25, 2013. The conference will be held at Felix Meritis, a renowned center for culture and science which dates back to the 18th century. The conference is located in the center of Amsterdam and can be easily reached by public transport (see Conference venue and travelling).
The conference is now open for registration. Deadline for abstract submission is 31st of May 2013. Please carefully read the guideline for abstract submission (see Abstract Submission). We aim to select many young investigators for oral presentations (34 time slots available) and moderated poster presentations. Best presentations will receive young investigator awards (sponsored by Springer).
The deadline for early registration is 15th of June 2013. Registration for the meeting, hotel and special event on Tuesday evening is separate. All hotels (see Registration) are within close proximity (walking distance) of the conference venue. In order to keep the costs low for young investigators, we have secured rooms at the Stayokay in Amsterdam, and there are several hotels with attractive offers for double rooms (please note that prices under hotel registration frequently involve the price for a double).
The meeting is designed to bring together clinicians and researchers with a background in various facets of cardiac, skeletal, and smooth muscle science (see Programme). We have been able to put together an exciting scientific programme that will have a strong focus on basic research and its translation to clinical application.
We hope to welcome you in Amsterdam this year!
