Human Proteome Organisation

9th Annual HUPO World Congress

Date Sunday, September 19 - Thursday, September 23, 2010
Location Sidney Convention & Exhibition Center, Australia
Organizers The Australasian Proteomics Society and the HUPO 2010 Local Congress Organising Committee

On behalf of the Australasian Proteomics Society and the HUPO 2010 Local Congress Organising Committee, we would like to extend a warm invitation for you to come to Sydney, Australia (one of the birthplaces of proteomics) to attend the 9th Annual HUPO World Congress from the 19th through to the 23rd of September 2010.

Sydney is Australia's largest city and international gateway renowned for its spectacular harbour, breathtaking natural attractions, dazzling beaches, year round outdoor lifestyle and exhilarating experiences.

HUPO2010 in Sydney will facilitate the exchange of new scientific ideas, knowledge, information to promote the application of proteomic based novel prognostic, diagnostic, therapeutic tools and to advance our understanding of the systems biology basis underlying to human diseases.

A HUPO World Congress in Sydney in 2010 will provide outstanding forum to launch the Human Proteome Project and opportunities to showcase the remarkable progress of major initiatives and exhibit the exciting advances made by HUPO members. We hope the new format of combining HUPO various initiatives and four (4) "clinical themes" in with the main program will provide a refreshing approach, when combined with a focus on the next generation of proteomics scientists in the emerging discipline of systems biology.

HUPO2010 will hold a world-class exhibition involving our industrial partners and vendors in proteomics, systems biology as well as leading companies in disciplines like diagnostics.

We look forward to welcoming you here to our beautiful city "down under" in September 2010.

Program

The Scientific Program will bring together an outstanding list of international and Australian scientists who will present an exciting range of papers on recent discoveries in proteomics. The Congress starts with a satellite Education and Training day covering the latest technologies and methods in proteomics analysis, while the Clinical and HUPO Initiatives sessions have been incorporated into the main program, which has been expanded to four full days. Each day starts with a plenary session before the program is split into three themed parallel sessions. The strong program will attract a large number of delegates and exhibitors and plenty of time has been set aside in the program for exchange of ideas during the poster sessions, industry workshops and coffee/lunch breaks held in the magnificent exhibition hall. The scientific program is complimented by a spectacular social program culminating in a gala party at the iconic Luna Park.
