Welcome

A year-long cocooning and no physical meeting in 2020 was an awakening for scientific communities like the ACBI. No gathering, no science. No discussion, no innovation.

 

That's why, the ACBI meeting series comes back on track, but this time, in virtual settings. 

The online meeting is intended to create a platform that connects ACBI members and leading chemical biologists from Israel together. Speakers of the meeting will showcase their representative research effort in chemical biology, and all meeting participants are encouraged to ask questions and exchange ideas for collaborations. 

Relax and enjoy yourself as you normally do in the ACBI meeting series. In return, the virtual meeting will provide you with the same rewarding experience as live events do.

Meeting Report

ACBI 2021 Online Meeting was convened from February 24 through 25, 2021, at Zoom and Remo. The online meeting was attended by a total of 82 participants from 12 countries: 62 ACBI members and sub-members from Japan, Korea, China and Hong Kong, Singapore, India, UAE, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Myanmar; 18 leading chemical biologists from Israel; plus 2 admin staff members. In the ACBI's 10-year journey throughout Asia, the Online Meeting was attended by the largest number of attendees. The amazing lineups of speakers from Israel and ACBI, as well as the convenience and accessibility of the virtual venue, might have contributed to the size and diversity of the meeting.

Scientific Sessions:

Four scientific sessions of the meeting ran concurrently in two breakout rooms (ACBI Room and Jerusalem Room) via Zoom: 18 speakers from the Israeli side presented their signature research in ACBI Room, and 24 ACBI speakers in Jerusalem Room. Meeting attendees moved between the two rooms according to their preferences and participated in discussions throughout the meeting period.


Reception:

At the end of Day 01, a 30-minute reception was held at Remo, where Dr. Eylon Yavin proposed ACBI's all-time tradition of toasting as "chemical~ biology~!" 


Virtual Excursion:

Day 02 concluded with a 30-minute virtual excursion presented by Dr. Mattan Hurevich, who showed the guests around the old city of Jerusalem and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which was supposed to be the on-site venue of the suspended ACBI 2020 Jerusalem Meeting.

Despite some technical glitches and limitations, the online meeting ended in a positive tone with a promise to meet each other physically in Jerusalem in the near future. The virtual gathering also contributed to forming a solid ground for the ACBI to build ties with leading chemical biologists from Israel. Meeting attendees from both parties are encouraged to start exploring their mutual interests and collaborations in whatever format available.
