From August 31st- September 3rd the biennual EMBO Chemical Biology conference, hosted by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg took place. The conference series has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the finest meetings representing this discipline of life science research. A feature of this EMBO meeting is the consistency of the venue (EMBL is in a delightful location after all) and the organisers (Maja Kohn, John Overington and Carsten Schultz). This ensures familiarity and high complementarity with prior meetings. Indeed, a policy of the organising committee is that no speaker can be talk more than once so one should choose their opportunity wisely.

The typical format was adopted where the conference is divided into sections based on topic and talks were a mixture of 4 keynote speakers and 38 speakers, the latter being invited or selected from abstracts. Almost 200 posters were also displayed throughout the meeting
