iPosters at BES2019 – this was our second year working with the British Ecological Society for their Annual Meeting, this time in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The BES is the oldest ecological society in the world, established over a century ago in 1913. Presentations focused on the interactions among living things and the environment. They provide insights into the interdependence between people and nature – vital knowledge for food production, maintaining clean air and water, and sustaining biodiversity in a changing climate.
We’re in Heidelberg Germany for our first assignment with EMBL, the European Moleclular Biology Laboratory – one of the world’s leading research institutions, and Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences.
EMBL is an intergovernmental organisation with more than 80 independent research groups covering the spectrum of molecular biology. It operates across six sites: Heidelberg (main laboratory), Barcelona, Hamburg, Grenoble, Rome, and EMBL-EBI Hinxton.
Our current event – EMBLCanGen – gathers leading scientists & researchers from around the world for discussions and presentations covering key topics in Cancer Genomics.
iPosterSessions at the International Astronautical Congress
Our first project for the International Astronautical Federation – their 70th annual International Astronautical Congress, IAC 2019 – came to a close in Washington DC today. The Congress was organised locally by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and was attended by over 7 thousand scientists, engineers and scholars – all focused on the challenges and promises of getting humans and support systems up into space.
Taking place during the 50th anniversary year of the first human moon landing, the Congress was abuzz with plans for revisiting the moon, moving on to Mars, and sending remote systems to explore other destinations in our solar system and beyond.
Over 300 iPosters were presented by researchers from over 40 countries, on topics ranging from Space Propulsion to the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence, from Satellite Systems to Space Debris, from Space Life Sciences to the Law of Outer Space.
We’re looking forward to next year’s IAC in Muscat, Oman!
