ABOUT

This conference will take a uniquely broad approach to cartilage biology, combining researchers with expertise in developmental genetics, biomaterials & biomedicine, and evolution of cartilage. To build wider concepts in cartilage biology, we will pay particular attention to work on less studied cartilage types, on evolutionary perspectives of skeletal diversity and on less traditional models for skeletal biology (e.g. sharks and rays), and how these can enhance modern medical understandings of cartilage. In bringing together diverse cartilage research, the meeting will integrate the full community of cartilage biologists, accelerating research innovation, interdisciplinary collaboration and community-building.

We look forward to seeing you in Banyuls!

PROGRAM

All conference themes —Biomaterials & Biomedicine, Development, Evolution— are represented each day, to emphasize multi-disciplinarity and avoid topic ‘saturation’. Each day will wrap up with a roundtable discussion, synthesizing the cutting edge cartilage research presented and framing “big picture” views in cartilage biology as the research community moves forward.

Venue

The Conference will be at the Observatoire Océanologique de Banyuls sur Mer (Avenue du Fontaulé, 66650 Banyuls-sur-Mer, France). 

The Observatoire was founded in 1881 to study marine and terrestrial Mediterranean coast ecosystems. It is supported by Université Paris-Sorbonne, the French national center for research (CNRS) and belongs to the European Marine Biological Resources Center (EMBRC). The OOB offers 3 lab rooms, a large lecture hall (120 persons), 3 conference rooms (25-40 persons) and a poster exhibition space. It includes a public aquarium for outreach and a research-dedicated working space. Wireless internet and catering are available on-site. 

Accommodation

All accommodations, from small hotels to spas, can be found at the city website:

Please book your room in advance - Banyuls is a top destination for holidays.

30 rooms are already booked at the Observatory Accommodation. Eligible students and young career researchers can apply for housing free of charge (see Registration form).

Some local hotels will offer conference rates - we will pass on their contact information once abstracts are accepted. See some hotels listed in the 'Maps' link.

Transport

Banyuls is a little town on the French coast and does not have its own airport. The venue is, however, accessible from several international airports with train connection to Banyuls: Perpignan (40km, train 30 mins, 8€), Montpellier (200km, 2h, 30€), Toulouse (250km, 3h, 40€), Barcelona (200km, 3h, 50€).
