The Symposium will take place at the Megaron Conference Center located in one of the nicest districts of Athens. Around 90 contributions have been selected for oral presentation, and the program will be announced by the end of June.

The Local Organizing Committee promises to offer the famous Greek hospitality to all participants. The social events will be announced later on. Visit Athens and enjoy science, social events, unique archeological sites, walks around Acropolis and the wonderful Greek weather.

Welcome address:

On behalf of the Organising Committee, we have the pleasure of inviting you to the 32nd European Peptide Symposium (32EPS 2012), which will be held in Athens from the 2nd to 7th September, 2012.

The symposium will present the most recent, cutting-edge research on a broad range of topics in the area of Peptide Science by leading international experts from both industry and academia. The scientific program will be structured around international invited speakers and oral presentations of selected high-quality submitted abstracts as well as poster sessions where all delegates are encouraged to present their data.

Athens, a bustling city of 5-million residents, is full of contrasts and pleasant surprises. The history of Athens is one of the longest of any city in Europe and in the world. Three thousand years old cultural riches are housed in approximately 50 national and private museums, including the new Acropolis museum, featuring from neolithic settlement finds to examples of modern art. When you are in Athens you will probably get the impression the city never sleeps.

It is our intention to establish an inspiring atmosphere for fruitful scientific discussions and for initiating new collaborations within and outside Europe.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Athens at the 32nd European Peptide Symposium.

Prof. George Kokotos
Chair
