The Second Julio Palacios International Symposium
Synergies in the Biosciences

11-12 July 2018

Auditorium University of A Coruña

Rúa Maestranza, 9 - 15001 A Coruña (Galicia, Spain)


The Second Julio Palacios International Symposium, is oriented towards biosciences from an experimental and theoretical viewpoint, since Julio Palacios, in his last years dedicated his research time to investigation in medicine. This “bio” orientation will be common denominator of the speaker’s subjects, hence looking for a synergy between chemistry, physics and mathematics with medicine. The goal is to invite very high-level experimental and theoretical scientists, which will postulate theoretical models and describe experiments for a better understanding of the biological processes taking place in Nature.


Bases and description: Meet a maximum of 200 highly qualified students as assistants. The interaction between students and speakers will be a priority in this symposium. A poster session will be organized where students are invited to present their works, to be discussed and commented with speakers and assistants, with a proper and relaxed environment for discussion in this multidisciplinary scientific event.





INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMMUNICATIONS: Abstracts for posters can be optionally submitted after registration and will be selected through an evaluation process carried out by the Scientific Committee, as a function of their quality, origininality and impact, as well as by the multidisciplinarity.

CONTRIBUTIONS. Abstracts for the posters should be written in English, according to this TEMPLATE, and sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
