NEWS (on September 20th): Important information regarding the organization of the conference are available at the top of the program page

Welcome to the Dashboard of MoTEC 2021

The 12th Molybdenum and Tungsten Enzymes Conference, MoTEC21, originally planned to be held in the French Riviera, will be finally held as a virtual event from September 27th to October 1st, 2021 due to the COVID-19 sanitary conditions around the world.

The conference will cover all fronts of molybdenum and tungsten enzymes research, including nitrogenases, ranging from synthesis of the related cofactors, enzyme structure and function, health and disease to environmental aspects. Invited and selected talks, interactive poster sessions and many other innovative virtual tools will give the opportunity to most participants to present their work at the Conference.

We are aware that a virtual Conference cannot be equal to a physical one, particularly regarding social interactions, but there are some benefits as well. We will do our best to make this conference another successful MoTEC event keeping an interactive and thrilling atmosphere. The MoTEC21 virtual meeting will offer a creative ground for participating in meetings in a human way until we can once again return to normalcy.

We are therefore pleased to be able to offer the MoTEC this year in a new, reimagined format to suit this extraordinary time of the COVID pandemic. It is a period when Science has provided solutions to a global problem, and also when researchers and educators but also young students may need extra support and encouragement from coming together as a community.

We are looking forward to meeting you at MoTEC21!

Axel Magalon, Conference Chair and Partha Basu, Co-Chair

How does it work?

This dashboard has been built with the target of duplicating the same environment as an in-person conference, you will find below the usual conference areas: welcome desk, conference rooms…
Each participant will be able to join the area she/he is interested in by simply clicking on the corresponding button.

It is very important to keep a maximum of human interactions, that is why a welcome desk room where you can talk with a staff member is available to help you.
If you encounter any technical issue to connect to the welcome desk room then use the chat room, it should appear on the bottom right corner of this page during the conference days.

The conference will start on Monday 27th of September at 03:00 P.M (CEST)
