The 16th International Congress on Photobiology

The 16th International Congress on Photobiology
Córdoba, Argentina
September 8–12, 2014

The 2014 International Congress of Photobiology was held in the “Pavillion Argentina” located within the University Campus of the National University of Córdoba, Argentina. This conference was the 16th in a series sponsored by the International Union of Photobiology (IUPB, www.iuphotobiology.com). This was the first time that the IUPB Congress was held in the Southern Hemisphere and also the first time held South of the Rio Grande. The University of Córdoba is the oldest in Argentina (founded in 1613) and the City of Córdoba offered a wonderful frame (and great weather) for the Congress.

All aspects of the interaction of light with the biosphere were covered, such as photosynthesis, photomorphogenesis, photomovement of plants and bacteria, the interaction of UV light with ecosystems (including bacteria, phytoplankton, zooplankton, algae, plants, mammalian cells, and  humans), circadian rhythms in plants and animals, vision and light-induced damage to the retina, UV induction of skin cancer, as well as the use of light for the treatment of various illnesses and the photochemistry of xenobiotics and biological molecules. The use of light-based technologies for the study of biological processes was also the subject of various symposia.

The Congress registered 507 participants from 38 Countries. 160 participants were from Argentina, 44 from Brazil, 17 from Chile, 60 from the USA, 50 from Germany, 20 from Japan, etc. 280 of the participants were young fellows (graduate students and young researchers).

The Scientific Programme (see the day by day program in pdf format at www.iuphotobiology.com) consisted of 3 Plenary Lectures: Nathan Nelson (Israel) on the “Evolution of the Photosynthetic Apparatus”, Thomas Schwarz (Germany) on “Photoimmunology”, Ernst Bamberg (Germany) on “Channel Rhodopsins and Optogenetics”, 9 Keynote speakers highlighting the frontiers of research in various areas: Carlos Ballaré (Argentina), Rosalie Crouch (USA), Anderson Garbuglio (Brazil), Mario Guido (Brazil), Hideki Kandori (Japan), Alberto Kornblihtt (Argentina), Dimitra Markovitsi (France), Frank Vollmer (Germany), Horacio Zagarese (Argentina), and 51 Symposia (each 130 minutes with between 4 and 6 participants), organized each one by two (sometimes one) scientists who were (was) also contributors to the Symposium. There were also two marvelous special (Historical) Lectures: Winslow Briggs (USA) on his “Scientific and Life Experience”, Phil Hanawalt (USA) on the “History of Research on the DNA Repair Mechanism”. A Symposium on Photomovement was held in Memoriam of Masamitsu Watanabe (deceased in 2013), who had a major role in the discovery of photoreceptors implied in photomovement (see the paper by Peter Hegemann).

IUPB awarded three Finsen Medals with Lecture to Masamitsu Wada (Japan), Herbert Hönigsmann (Austria), and Douglas Brash (USA), one Finsen Lecture to Roman Ulm (Switzerland), as well as one Edna Roe Lecture to Chikako Nishigori (Japan).

Graduate students and young researchers presented 200 posters on all areas of photobiological research. Six poster prizes in the form of book vouchers were awarded during the closing ceremony: two from Springer Verlag, two from the Royal Society of Chemistry and two from the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

Most symposia were organized with strong collaboration of colleagues from Latin-America. Some research areas are strong in Argentina (e.g., plant photomorphogenesis, blue-light-induction of microorganism behaviour, vision and UV damage to retina, circadian rhythms, photoecology, UV influence on the environment) and in Brazil (PDT, DNA photodamage, bioluminescence, biodiesel photoproduction), whereas some others are weak (e.g., molecular aspects of photomedicine, optogenetics, and areas of research that require complex instrumentation: e.g., ultra fast reactions). All symposia were well attended, especially by the young colleagues.

Many of the subjects treated were directly related to the problems and/ or peculiarities encountered in Latin America, such as the photobiology of extremophile bacteria at high altitude in the Puna (North of Argentina and Chile, Bolivia and Perú) as well as in Antarctica, the effect of the Ozone hole in the ecosystems in Argentina and Chile, the special properties of alga in Chile, the increase of UV-induced skin diseases in Brazil and others.

The participation of Argentine Scientists working abroad: Víctor Batista, Roberto Bogomolni, Gonzalo Cosa, Raquel Galián, Thomas Jovin, Diana Kirilovsky, Maria Andrea Mroginski, Ana Moore, Juan C. (Tito) Scaiano, Graciela Spivak, Cristian Strassert, María Vernet, Matias Zurbriggen, and Silvia Braslavsky was very important for the consolidation of the research ties between Argentine research groups and groups abroad. This has a special value in view of the very dramatic brain drain the Country suffered since 1966 and until 2001, which has being reverted by several actions taken in the last few years, in particular since the creation of the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovative Production, MINCyT, in 2011.

The Argentine science administration Agencies strongly supported the Congress with grants from the Argentine Research Council, CONICET, (ca. 10.000 U$S) and from MINCyT (ca. 12.000 U$S). This permitted waiving the registration fee of all Argentina graduate students and several young scientists. In addition, the programme R@ices from MINCYT financed the travel to the Congress of several of the Argentine colleagues working abroad.

There was also important support (both financial and logistic) by the German Institutions (Research in Germany grouping DAAD, DFG, Fraunhofer, Humboldt Foundation) and the Max Planck Society as well as financial support from IUBS (International Union of Biological Societies), IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry), TWAS (The World Academy of Sciences) as well as ESP, ASP and the French Society of Photobiology, who helped financing the participation of young graduate students. These grants permitted waiving the fees of Latin- American graduate students and young researchers.

Several International companies and Argentine representatives of instrumentation supported the Congress; major contributors were: L’Oreal: in particular for sponsoring the contributors of the Symposium on Photoprotection, BASF and Johnson&Johnson. Some of the sponsoring companies had an exhibition booth in the foyer of the Pavillion.

All abstracts of Plenary, Special, and Keynote Lectures, as well as of the contributions to the Symposia and the posters presented were published on-line and can be found in pdf format at www.iuphotobiology.com.

The Editors of the Journals Photochemical and Photobiological Sciences (PPS, the Journal of the European Society of Photobiology, ESP, and the European Photochemical Association, EPA), Photochemistry and Photobiology (P&P, the Journal of the American Society of Photobiology, ASP), and Pure and Applied Chemistry (PAC, the Scientific Journal of the Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, IUPAC) have agreed to publish, in each Journal, some of the Lectures and Symposia presented during the Congress. The papers will then be collated in a visrtual issue. All submitted papers underwent the normal evaluation procedure. We deeply thank the authors for submitting to the three Journals their presentations to the Congress.

A major spin-off (s) of the Congress was the creation of the Argentine Group of Molecular Photobiologists (GRAFOB in Spanish, http://grupoargentinodefotobiologia.info/drupal/). This group already held two meetings in preparation of the 16th ICP: one in 2011 in La Plata and the second in 2013 in Córdoba (same place as 16th ICP 2014), with ca. 90 participants in each of them.

Several contacts were established between Latin American Research Groups, including some that could not participate of the Congress. The Argentine photobiology group met during the Congress and it was agreed to organize a third GRAFOB  meeting in Tucumán in 2016.

The Executive Board of IUPB had a regular meeting during the Congress and also held a general assembly. The new elected Executive Board is: President: John Spudich (USA), Secretary: Evelyn Sage (France), Treasurer: Franz Trautinger (Austria), Vice-Presidents: Roberto Bassi (Italy), Carlos Ballaré (Argentina), Gary Halliday (Australia), Yoshitaka Fukada (Japan), Liason member as organizer of the 16th ICP: Silvia Braslavsky (Germany) (See the site www.iuphotobiology.com).

The participants had the oportunity of enjoying a Tango show during the opening reception on Sunday evening and Argentine folk dancing on Thursday evening.

The 17th ICP will be held most probably in 2018 in the UK.

Shine on You Crazy Books

Let there be light! It’s a new beginning for The Comprehensive Series in Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences. First started in 2001, this series has covered some fantastic topics from flavins to lasers. Brand new books have just been published, and the freshly appointed Series Editorial Board is looking for the next big topics.

How did the series emerge?

In addition to primary research and reviews, photochemists, photobiologists and aspiring students can need more. In response to the identified need for comprehensive information sources that cover well-established and emerging fields in depth, in 2001 the European Society for Photobiology (ESP) and the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) agreed to launch a series of books in photoscience. The series title leaves little untold about its purpose: Comprehensive Series in Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences.

Browsing through some documents from the time of its launch, we ran into instructions for authors that suggest manuscripts should be submitted “together with a set of disks (or CD-ROM)…” Today, floppy disks are useless, compact disks are a vintage technology and we submit our scientific papers by clicking on touchscreen devices. So much has changed, but the book series has maintained its high scientific standards and best original features, thanks to the vision of committed previous series editors (Donat-Peter Haeder and the late Giulio Jori).

5000 pages later…

Thirteen books (and over 5000 pages!) have now been published, covering very cool and interesting fields, giving – as the series editors wrote in the foreword of the first published volume – a critical evaluation of the directions that the field is taking. If you glance at the published titles, you will see the results of hard and dedicated work from many chapter authors and volume editors from around the world.

The Executive Committee of the ESP met in September 2015 in Aveiro, Portugal during the biennial Congress of the Society. The Committee has given the three of us the prestigious roles of Series Editors of the book series. We are flattered and honoured by this office. We are committed to work hard to maintain the standards of the Series and to source and invite new edited volumes on important topics.

And what now?

Very soon, two new volumes will be available. Surface Water Photochemistry, edited by Paola Calza and Davide Vione, is now available and it explores the latest research on the photochemical fate of organic pollutants in surface water. Singlet Oxygen, edited by Santi Nonell and Cristina Flors, comprises two volumes that present the physical, chemical and biological properties of this reactive oxygen species and its increasingly important applications across chemical, environmental and biomedical areas. Look out for this book in early 2016.

Currently, we are scouring the literature, attending conferences and speaking to our colleagues to decide what are the topics that have developed significantly in the last few years and that could now do with a new edited book covering the field. The series will be open to and will expand to include any topic where an in-depth coverage need is defined.

Thanks to the impending publication of two new titles, a new series Editorial Board, and beautiful new cover designs, it looks like an exciting new start for the Comprehensive Series in Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences. We do welcome feedback on books in the series and ideas for areas we should cover in future. To get in touch, please email us at books@rsc.org.

Ad maiora!

Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences issue 7 is now available online

Issue 7 of Photochemical & Photochemical Sciences is a themed issue on ‘Blue-light photoreceptors’ and is now available to read online.

The front cover this month features work by Aba Losi and co-workers from Parma, Italy. Their article takes as its starting point the increasing evidence that prokaryotic organisms can sense and react to light stimuli via a variety of photosensory receptors and signal transduction pathways. The authors present a comprehensive scenario of the existence of bilin-GAF, LOV and BLUF proteins in the prokaryotic world, and inspect possible phylogenetic pathways. They also define novel criteria for identifying gene (and protein) sequences based on experimentally assessed photochemical events.
