The aim of this conference is to present the most recent advances in the mechanisms of membrane remodelling and organization, that is, all cellular processes involving changes in the shape and dynamics of cellular membranes induced by specific proteins and/or lipids. This will be the second Jacques Monod Conference on this topic.

Membrane remodelling and organization are fields where creativity, new approaches and transversal work between biologists, chemists and physicists have an undisputable impact. Indeed, biological membranes still escape to standardization: they cannot be crystallized, they move, they fission and fuse, they contain hundreds of different lipids and last but not least, when an organelle starts delivering its secrets, other ones remain enigmatic and challenge our models. This conference will foster contacts and debates between researchers of different origins from physicists to biochemists, from theoreticians to cell biologists, from physiopathologists to geneticists.
