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

The European Calcium Channel Conference 2018 will focus 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 will bring 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 will complement the meeting program (download flyer). Additional short talks will be selected from abstracts. Already confirmed participants are listed below.

Deadline for abstract submission: March 15, 2018
Registration is now open !

We would be happy to welcome you at this meeting.

The European Calcium Channel Conference is organized every three years, alternating with the International Calcium Channel Conferences (

Before the ECCC-2018 a Neuroscience Satellite Symposium, the Joint Meeting of Austrian Neuroscience Consortia (May 7 - 9, 2018), also with excellent plenary speakers, organized by two Austrian Neurosience excellence programs is scheduled. Attendance of this meeting is free for registered ECCC-2018 participants. Please submit the completed registration and housing form for the Joint Meeting of Austrian Neuroscience Consortia by fax or email to Katharina Dander ( Registration for this meeting is also now open and free of charge until February 1, 2018.
