3rd European Calcium Channel Conference
Alpbach, Austria – May 9 - 12, 2018

We would like to thank you all for attending the third ECCC Meeting 2018! We had a busy time full of amazing speakers, workshops and delegates. If you would like to be involved in future ECCC, please keep an eye on this site.

The European Calcium Channel Conference 2018 focused on voltage-gated calcium channels and other structurally related ion channels involved in calcium signaling in excitable cells. Like in the successful first two conferences in 2012 and 2015 it brought together the leaders in the field and young researchers at a fantastic setting in the Austrian Alps to discuss the latest developments in ion channel research. Special topics, a guided poster session (with 5 min presentations of each poster) and social activities complemented the meeting program. Additional short talks were selected from abstracts.

The European Calcium Channel Conference is organized every three years, alternating with the International Calcium Channel Conferences (http://www.calciumchannel.com).
