The Madrid Instruct Image Processing Center (I2PC) is very pleased to welcome you to the First All Hands Meeting of iNEXT (iNEXT AHM 2016), the European-Union funded H2020 project providing transnational access to structural biology infrastructures.

AHM 2016 is the first annual meeting of iNEXT. It aims at gathering not only iNEXT Partners, but also (potential) iNEXT Users contacted directly by the different Facilities involved in the project. All iNEXT Partners, together with the Scientific Advisory Board, the Executive Review Panel, the Industry Platform and the User Panel, will discuss the work that was performed already and will be performed in the future, including its different Joint Research Activities. In turn, iNEXT Users will have a clear forum where to present their work, discuss the current access to the Facilities and make suggestions for improvements. The iNext User Panel will meet and elect a chair who will be the User Representative in the iNext Management Committee.

The meeting will take place from Wednesday the 19th of October to Friday the 21st in the historic town of Alcala de Henares, the birthplace of the writer of Don Quijote, Miguel de Cervantes. iNEXT Partners, as well as the Users invited by the Partners are expected to fill in the register page before September 20th.

Note that just before the iNEXT AHM we will host in the same venue the First I2PC-FEI Workshop on Data Analysis in cryo Electron Microscopy, with special emphasis on Pharma users. Attendees of this workshop will join the iNEXT AHM from its second day.


Parador Nacional de Alcala de Henares, Madrid, Spain [ directions ]

Alcalá de Henares was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1998 in recognition of the fact that Alcalá was the first planned University City in the world. Alcalá de Henares was also the birthplace and residence of Miguel de Cervantes, the most illustrious Spanish writer of all times, author of "Don Quijote" (one of the world literary masterpieces). Founded in B.C. by the Romans, who named it "Complutum", its name was changed, during the Muslim rule (second half of 8th century) to "Qual´at abd al-Salam", where the present name of Alcalá comes from.
