The Protein Society's 31st Annual Symposium will be held in Montreal, Canada from July 24 - 27, 2017 at the Hotel Bonaventure. The Program Planning Committee has assembled a vibrant scientific program encompassing diverse topics relevant to protein science. Click the links below to find relevant information related to program and speakers, registration, abstracts, hotel reservations and sponsorships.

The Protein Society’s premier event, our Annual Symposium, hosts 700 hundred chemists, biologists, physicists, mathematicians, students, and educators who share a unifying interest in understanding the nature of proteins.

Structured with two concurrent sessions and spanning 3.5 days, the event features a multitude of opportunities for networking, plentiful speaking slots for selected early-career scientists, and unique workshops for students AND educators.

Please note - Symposium Sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. on July 24, and end around noon on July 27. We encourage you to arrange travel so that you are able to take advantage of the full day of sessions on both days.


The Protein Society is proud of our collaboration with Canada's PROTEO network, one of our gold-level-sponsors, in 2017.
