On behalf of the organizing committee, we cordially invite you to the 5th International & The 14th National Symposium on Membrane Biology (ISMB2016), which will be held in Changchun, China, from August 4 to August 7, 2016. Researchers working on all aspects of membrane biology are invited to attend the workshop and over 20 prominent invited speakers will talk about the latest progress in this quickly expanding field. We are making every effort to bring you an exciting forum for the presentation and exchange of the most recent research findings as well as ideas and directions in membrane biology. We hope that you will also take this opportunity to reacquaint with old colleagues and meet new friends, and to experience the rich Chinese culture, natural and historical scenic views and delicious Chinese food.
The symposium will be held at the Sheraton Changchun Jingyuetan Hotel. Changchun is located in the northeast part of China and is about 1000 km away from Beijing. During summer time, the cool weather makes it quite attractive for visitors, who use Changchun as a base for visiting Changbai Mountain, Tianchi (Pool in the sky), and Mongolian grassland. Sheraton Changchun Jingyuetan Hotel is one of the top hotels in northeast China. It provides comfortable meeting facilities and superb housing accommodations, and is conveniently reached via the Changchun International Airport and Changchun Railway Station. Nearby attractions include the National Jingyuetan Forestry Park, Changchun Movie Wonderland, and Jilin Museum.
We look forward to welcoming you to Changchun for the ISMB2016!
