Affinity 2017
Paris, 25th - 29th June 2017


Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Society for Molecular Recognition, and of the local organizing committee, we are pleased to invite you to participate in the international conference


22nd Meeting of the International Society for Molecular Recognition

in Paris, France, Pierre and Marie Curie Campus

June 25th-29th, 2017

AFFINITY2017 will be a forum where researchers from academia and industry meet to review advances in the field of biomolecular recognition and affinity technology, and define areas for future investigations. The scientific sessions will include lectures by invited speakers, as well as talks and poster presentations selected from submitted abstracts. There will be a number of special presentations and events throughout the symposium.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Paris at AFFINITY2017!

With best regards,

Karsten Haupt
Conference chairman


  • Fundamental aspects of biorecognition, kinetics and thermodynamics of biomolecular interactions, computational simulation of biomolecular interactions.

  • Evolutionary engineering & computational modeling for affinity and drug discovery.

  • Novel affinity materials: combinatorial approaches, biomolecular engineering, molecularly imprinted polymers, aptamers, supramolecular receptors, biomimicry.

  • Affinity interactions in cell biology - signaling pathways, differentiation, bioimaging.
