Other Autophagy Meetings

Swiss Autophagy meeting 2024 - Emerging roles of autophagy: From cells to organisms

Date: September 12th – 13th, 2024
Place: Lausanne (Switzerland)

Mark your calendars! The Swiss Autophagy Meeting 2024, titled Emerging roles of autophagy: From cells to organisms will take place at University of Lausanne on September 12-13, 2024, at the grand auditoire of the Department of Fundamental Neurosciences (DNF, Rue du Bugnon 9, Lausanne, Switzerland). 


We have an exciting list of Swiss and international invited speakers, covering different model organisms and a wide range of cell biology questions at the forefront of autophagy research. This meeting offers wonderful opportunities for young scientists to interact with the autophagy field, as well as for “autophagists” to exchange ideas and foster collaborations.



  • Abstract submission: 1st July 2024
  • General registration: 15 August 2024

We strongly encourage the participation of PhD students and young researchers: there are sessions with short and flash talks selected from abstracts.

As keynote lectures, we will enjoy the talks of Prof. Anne Simonsen (Norway) and of Prof. Katja Simon (UK). Additionally, the program has 10 international invited speakers: Sharon Tooze (UK); Marja Jaatela (Denmark); Joern Dengjel (Switzerland); Terje Johansen (Norway); Oliver Florey (UK); Thierry Galli (France); Francesco Cecconi (Italy); Jay Debnath (USA); Christian Munz (Switzerland) and Maho Hamasaki (Japan). 

EMBO Workshop - Autophagy across scales

Date: September 23th – 27th, 2024
Place: Sorrento (Italy)

Autophagy, a cornerstone of cellular quality control, has seen remarkable breakthroughs since the discovery of Autophagy-related genes in the 1990s. Recent advancements reveal a mechanistically plausible way these genes collaborate to encapsulate cellular material in autophagosomes for lysosomal degradation. It’s now crucial to explore how these ATGs coordinate with membrane trafficking and lipid transfer machinery on molecular and cellular levels.

Armed with molecular insights, we can precisely modulate autophagy to understand its role as a stress response pathway across tissues and organisms. The field is rapidly advancing in mechanistic understanding and scalable tools. While this progress continues, staying aware of broader advancements is essential. Hence, fostering knowledge exchange among autophagy researchers from diverse disciplines is imperative. “Autophagy across scales” stands as the sole EMBO workshop offering this vital opportunity.

Organizers: Sascha Martens, Antonella De Matteis and Helene Knævelsrud.

Abstract and registration deadline: June 15th, 2024

International FOR2625 Symposium on LYSOSOMES & AUTOPHAGY

Date: June 6th – 7th, 2024
Place: Berlin (Germany)

The members of the DFG-funded Research Unit FOR2625 – Mechanisms of Lysosomal Homeostasis invite scientists from all over the world to join our second and final International FOR2625 Symposium on LYSOSOMES & AUTOPHAGY from June 6 – 7, 2024 in Berlin, Germany.

We are excited to share once more an unique meeting with you, learning and discussing about the newest findings on the molecular machinery of the endo-lysosomal system and autophagy. As in 2022, our symposium offers a great opportunity for young and more advanced researchers to meet internationally renowned experts and discuss their projects during scientific sessions as well as during social events.

LYSOSOMES & AUTOPHAGY will take place at the Max Delbrück Communications Center (MDC.C), one of the most modern congress centers in Berlin. The MDC.C is located in the North-East of Berlin on the Campus Berlin-Buch, the largest Biotech Campus in Berlin, and is well connected with the public transportation system.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin in 2024!

Deadline: March 31st, 2024
