Poster session & Social program

Wednesday afternoon will offer the opportunity to discuss the posters with their authors. The poster session will be followed by a conference dinner in the form of a finger buffet. Both the poster session and the dinner will occur in the historical building of the Old Wastewater Treatment Plant in Prague – Bubeneč.

The Old Wastewater Treatment Plant was constructed by a British civil engineer, William Heerlein Lindley, in 1901-1906. It was used for the treatment of sewage water in the city of Prague until 1967. Nowadays, the site is a museum for preserving industrial history, and it represents one of the oldest water treatment facilities in Europe.


The conference dinner will be accompanied by a String of musical pearls, a pleasantly dynamic triple flyby through the world of opera, operetta, and musical. Our guides will be soprano Radka Sehnoutková and tenor Michal Bragagnolo. Piano accompaniment will be provided by Táňa Vaněčková.


Guided underground tours will be available during the evening to soak up the building atmosphere even more. Going below the surface, there are steep staircases, tunnels, and gigantic engine halls. Large underground sedimentary basins are still filled up with water. Step into the industrial age and discover the original purpose of this technical landmark.


ChemBioDrug Workshop

After the conference, a workshop dedicated to applications of mass spectrometry in life science research will take place. The workshop is organized in the framework of the OP RDE project “Chemical biology for drugging undruggable targets” (CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/16_019/0000729).
