Dear colleagues,

After two successful meetings in 2012 and 2014, with each time about 170-180 participants from academia and industry, the organizing committee has the pleasure to announce the third Belgian Peptide Group meeting organized under the auspices of the European Peptide Society. The event will take place on February 17th and 18th, 2016 at the brand new conference centre "BEL" in Brussels (Avenue du Port 86C, 1000 Brussels, Belgium), featuring a modern auditorium and plenty of space for posters and exhibitor stands in the atrium. It is located very close to the city centre offering easy access to the train and metro stations and to various hotels and restaurants within a short distance from the conference building.

We will have six plenary lectures with invited speakers covering different peptide research and development areas and >20 opportunities for well selected presentations by the Scientific Committee to respond to participant expectations from such a conference. Poster presentation/sessions will be organised and we highly encourage you to share your scientific work and results with international attendees.

This meeting intends to cover various aspects in peptide world: drug discovery and development, pharmacology, structure-activity relationship, drug delivery, synthesis, identification and characterization. It will also be a great opportunity for PhD students and young scientists to learn about the many aspects of peptide research, and to discuss about peptide chemistry and biology with experienced researchers. To facilitate participation, the registration fee for PhD students has been limited to 75€ per person, including lunches and coffee breaks. Registration fee for all other participants is 175€. Please save the dates in your agenda.

The organisers are convinced that this meeting will stimulate fruitful discussions and will be an excellent opportunity for networking.
