Location of our venue

The venue, Homerton College in Cambridge, is located just south of the city centre, close to the train station. The college has beautiful grounds and offers on-site accommodation. 

The conference, including coffee breaks, poster sessions, and exhibitions by sponsors, will happen in the lecture hall and adjoining rooms. Lunches will be held in the cafeteria, and a BBQ is planned in the college gardens. The college bar is open in the evenings and we aim to provide some entertainment. Other restaurants and pubs are available in the area or in the city centre. The social program should include the option for a visit to the city centre and punting. 

About The ECS Meeting

Every 2 years the European Calcium Society organises a main scientific meeting.  In-between the years the society holds workshops.

Travel Fellowships

To promote sustainability of our event, we encourage all participants whenever possible to use public transport. Cambridge is well served by rail network. The venue site is a 10-minute walk from Cambridge train station. For intercontinental visitors, a direct train from London Stansted Airport to Cambridge is available.

Thanks to the support of the ECS, we are able to offer ten travel fellowships (to early career researchers or jECS members) and three emerging countries fellowships (to attendees from emerging countries). Please highlight in the registration form if you want to be considered for a Fellowship. Further information can be found on the ‘Practical Info’ page. 

Sponsors

Thank you to our sponsors for making this event a success.
