29 May–2 June 2022 8th Mediterranean Neuroscience Society (MNS) Conference
As the president of the MNS2022 Local Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 8th Mediterranean Neuroscience Society (MNS) Conference that will be held in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, from 29 May to 2 June 2022.
Neuroscience has recently witnessed a convergence of interest from many allied disciplines, including medicine, psychology, physics, computer science, statistics, as well as humanities and social sciences. Brain research has expanded its scope by including large-scale experimental and theoretical investigations of the central and peripheral nervous systems of biological organisms from cellular, behavioral, and societal perspectives, making it one of the most rapidly growing fields of science.
Therefore, this biennial conference will continue the tradition of continuous efforts by the MNS to bring together the neuroscience communities, biomedical and health care professionals, but also investigators and experts from other disciplines and from all over the world in a major event to discuss progress in brain research and related fields. It will be a unique opportunity to continue our friendships and scientific collaborations from the previous conferences in Marrakech, Morocco (2019), St Julian, Malta (2017), and Pula, Italy (2015), and to develop new opportunities for shared growth. We are confident that it will contribute to advancing the future profile of neuroscience, technology, and engineering, regionally and globally.
The conference particularly encourages and supports the interaction of research students and scientific and academic institutions from the South of the Mediterranean with the international community. MNS2022 will also play an essential role in introducing and fostering new research talents, allowing them to share their research experiences in a vibrant but friendly environment.
The President of MNS, Giuseppe Di Giovanni, other members of the Scientific and Local Committees, and I will strive to make this meeting a very successful event, both scientifically and socially.
On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee of the 8th MNS Conference, I hope to welcome you in Dubrovnik to enjoy a stimulating atmosphere, and the early Croatian summer on the Adriatic coast.
With best regards,
Professor Goran Šimić, MD, PhD
President of the Local Organizing Committee of the 8th MNS Conference
13–17 June 2022 International Symposium on Cyclodextrins in 2022 (ICS 2022)
On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my great pleasure to announce the 20th International Cyclodextrin Symposium (ICS2022).
ICS2022 will be held during June 13-17, 2022 at Giardini Naxos (Messina, ITALY) at UNAHOTELS Naxos Beach Sicilia and will be jointly organized by the National Council of Research (CNR) and the University of Messina, Italy. The first ICS was held in Budapest, Hungary in 1981, and organized by Prof. J. Szejtli. The 13th ICS was held in Turin, Italy, in 2006 and was organized by Prof. F. Trotta. Hence, ICS2022 will be the second symposium of this series hosted in Italy. This symposium follows the 19th ICS held on April 2018 in Tokyo, Japan.
All scientists belonging to the international academic community and to the industrial network interested in the cyclodextrin (CD) science are warmly invited.
We are planning different sections ranging from the fundamentals of various aspects of the cyclodextrins chemistry, physics and materials technology to the applications in food, environmental, pharmaceutical and life sciences, opening a window on last progresses on supramolecules, polymers and nanoconstructs based on CD. The ICS2022 will provide the chance for scientists working in different field of cyclodextrin research to meet and learn from each other, thus enhancing collaborations and scientific contacts.
We envisaged to include in the ICS 2022 program plenary lectures, key-notes, oral and poster presentations, dealing with the above-mentioned subjects. In this regard, as opening plenary speaker, we will have the honor to host the Nobel Laureate 2016 for Chemistry, Sir James Fraser Stoddart, which has already confirmed his presence with a lecture on the following theme: “Cyclodextrin-Based Molecular-Organic Frameworks : Emergence Opens Up a Whole New World of Wonders”.
We are also planning different reduction/and or prizes for young scientists and students.
Looking forward to see you at Giardini Naxos (Messina) on June 2022

1–2 August 2022 6th Midwest Single Molecule Workshop
Omaha, NE, USA
The 6th Midwest Single Molecule Workshop continues the tradition of previous workshops by gathering the leading experts and researchers in single-molecule biophysics from across the Midwest and surrounding areas to share their latest research, discoveries, and ideas, as well as communicate with peers involved in single-molecule studies.
This two-day meeting will feature a wide variety of topics and presenters, including invited lectures, poster presentations, short talks, and a keynote address. We hope to cover all aspects of single-molecule biophysics, including experimental and theoretical approaches in addition to the application of these methods to single-molecule studies ranging from isolated individual molecules to whole cells.
The workshop venue moves between different Midwestern universities. This time, the meeting will take place at UNMC, co-organized by Professor Yuri Lyubchenko and Dr. Mohtadin Hashemi. The past five workshops, held at Washington University in St. Louis (2010), the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor (2012), the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (2014), the University of Iowa (2016), and Iowa State University (2018), were very popular, and each attracted over 100 participants.
In addition, for this conference a Special Issue in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences has been established. Attendees are encouraged to submit their findings to this Special Issue. Every attendee will receive a substantial discount on submissions to this Special Issue.
We hope that you will be able to join us to continue this great tradition at the 6th Midwest Single Molecule Workshop. We look forward to seeing you in Omaha!

19–22 September 2022 Modeling & Design of Molecular Materials 2022 (MDMM 2022)
The Modeling and Design of Molecular Materials 2022 (MDMM 2022) conference is an interdisciplinary meeting that is devoted to the various aspects of conceiving materials with predefined properties. The key term is “molecular material”, which in the context of the conference means drugs and drug carriers (focused on cancer), catalysts, with an emphasis on photocatalysts (e.g., solar energy conversion) or theozymes (theoretically designed biocatalysts), materials for hydrogen storage (green fuel), conductive polymers (e.g., electronics, biosensors), etc. Nowadays, computer modeling seems to be a crucial step for the rational design of materials with demanded properties. Thus, during this prospective event we hope to gather specialists who develop computational methods that are useful in the computer-aided design of materials as well as those who employ molecular modeling at the very early stages of their projects, and for whom a computational approach eventually leads to practical solutions.
In 2022, the ninth edition of the Modeling and Design of Molecular Materials conference will be held in Gdańsk (Poland) at the Baltic Campus, a modern academic center comprising most of the departments of the University of Gdańsk. Hopefully, the current meeting will gather not only computational chemists but also physicochemists, material chemists, photochemists, etc., i.e., all those who not only develop but also use computational chemistry in their everyday research, from all over the world. The conference should illustrate well both the challenges in the field of molecular modeling and the significant progress that has been achieved in the last few years towards solving practical problems in materials science, biotechnology, and medicine.
