Dear Reader,

we kindly invite you to take part in the
DGF symposium on "Membrane Lipids",
planned for 9-10 May 2019 in Berlin, Germany!

Abstract Submissions and Congress Registration is now open!

The aim of this conference is to gather scientists and students from all over the world who are interested in biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology and cell biology of membrane lipids research. The conference will be divided into 4 sections, namely:

1) Lipids of biological membranes (Chair Thomas Becker, University of Freiburg, Germany)
2) Lipids of artificial membranes (Chair Karl Lohner, University of Graz, Austria)
3) Enzymes of lipid metabolism in biological membranes (Chair Christine Lang, University of Technology and Organobalance, Berlin, Germany)
4) Membrane lipids in health and disease (Chair Ruth Birner-Grünberger, Medical University Graz, Austria)
Eight well-known international keynote speakers will be invited to give an overview of their field of research and to present their new data. Fourteen short oral presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts. Moreover, two poster sessions will be held mainly for students to present their recent work. 2 x 250,- € Poster Awards will be provided by the journal "Progress in Lipid Research".

To find out more, to submit abstracts and to register for the conference please continue to the congress webpage.

Autumn Activities in Northern Ireland

[cited from Lonelyplanet]

Golf Golf
In Ireland, golf isn't a 'good walk spoiled', but a fantastic opportunity to play some of the world's most revered courses, especially in autumn when demand for tee times drops. Spectacular locations include Lahinch Golf Club, 10km southeast of the Cliffs of Moher, and Royal County Down Golf Club beneath the Mourne Mountains. Ireland's clubs all welcome non-members though you'll need a handicap from your home country to access the most prestigious. Comprehensive golfing information is available at the Golfing Union of Ireland

September and October are prime times to ride Ireland's waves, when the swells are generally highest and the water warmest (though you'll still want a thick wetsuit!). Hotspots along the surf-pounded Atlantic coastline include Easkey and Strandhill in County Sligo, Bundoran in County Donegal, and the beaches around Portrush, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Surf schools for all levels are listed with the Irish Surfing Association

food Seasonal flavours
During today's harvest, apples are picked, potatoes dug up and fishing fleets haul in prized catches. Get a taste at covered markets including Cork's ornate Victorian English Market and Belfast's St George's Market and colourful outdoor markets such as Dublin's Temple Bar Food Market; learn to create dishes using autumnal ingredients at exceptional cookery schools, among them County Cork's Ballymaloe Cookery School, the Tannery in Dungarvan, County Waterford, and Belfast's Mourne Seafood Cookery School or celebrate the bounty at food festivals across the island.

DGF Workshop Olivenöl

Zur Feier des 20jährigen Jubiläums des Deutschen Olivenölpanels führt die DGF vom 15.-17. Januar 2019 in Nürnberg nochmals ihren beliebten Olivenölworkshop mit Praxisanteilen zur Sensorik durch.

Die Anmeldung ist ab sofort möglich!

Die Teilnehmerzahl ist aus praktischen Gründen auf 60 Teilnehmer limitiert.

Der Workshop richtet sich an alle, die mit Olivenöl handeln, Olivenöle beurteilen und Olivenöle analysieren oder einfach nur an Olivenöl interessiert sind. Der Workshop wird dazu beitragen, den Teilnehmern die Beurteilung der sensorischen Qualität von Olivenölen in ihrer täglichen Arbeit zu erleichtern und ihr Wissen über diese Öle zu erweitern bzw. aufzufrischen und somit die Zufriedenheit der Kunden mit den Produkten zu verbessern.

Die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Fettwissenschaft sieht sich unter anderem als neutrale Plattform für die Vermittlung von Informationen rund um Fette, Öle, Lipide, Ölsaaten und Schroten. So ist es möglich, Ihnen auf diesem Workshop die unterschiedlichsten Aspekte rund um Olivenöl zu präsentieren.
