The idea for a joint German/British Bioenergetics meeting came about through informal discussions between colleagues from the Untied Kingdom and Germany.

This led to the initiative taken up by the organising committee to arrange this meeting in the spring of 2005.
The meeting will run for three days, with a couple of sessions dedicated to both Respiratory Electron Transfer as well as Photosynthesis. There will be full sessions on ATP Synthases, Transporters & Channels as well as a session dedicated to other bioenergetic proteins (e.g. Hydrogenases). There will be two evening plenary lectures given by Wolfgang Junge (Osnabrück) and Bob Williams (Oxford) as well as one special evening session dedicated to emerging techniques and theory

This joint German/British Bioenergetics meeting will cover a range of bioenergetics topics and an array of distinguished colleagues have already agreed to participate including
Hartmut Michel, John Walker, Wolfgang Junge,
Bob Williams, So Iwata, Wolfram Saenger, Jim Barber, Peter Kroneck, Peter Rich, Uli Brandt,
Bill Rutherford, Peter Gräber, Peter Henderson,
Helmut Grubmüller, Stuart Ferguson, Clemens Glaubitz, Wolfgang Lubitz, Steve Chapmann, Robert Bittl, Fraser Armstrong, Georg Nagel

It is expected that the invited speakers will fill approx. 60% of the oral slots available, with the rest being selected from the abstracts submitted at registration. In addition approx. 40% of the meeting will be dedicated to structured discussion sessions and poster viewing. It is anticipated that everyone who attends should be able to contribute in one form or another (oral presentation, discussion session or poster presentation).
The meeting will begin on Sunday evening and finish after breakfast on Thursday.
