2019 marks the 50th birthday of CECAM.

I welcome you to this  Conference shaped by CECAM’s  mission:  enabling scientists to meet in an atmosphere that combines excellence and open discussions and paves the way for new scientific perspectives and collaborations.

This event will bring together old and new friends to discuss state of the art methods and current challenges, celebrate 50 remarkable years of activities, and reflect on the future of CECAM and of our scientific field.

Ignacio Pagonabarraga
CECAM Director
