The Special Issue of Molecules
The Eighth Symposium on the Alpha-Amylase Family - ALAMY_8 - will be held at the Congress Centre of the Slovak Academy of Sciences,
The Symposium will traditionally be held in the Smolenice Castle situated on a hill above the small city of Smolenice, which lies at the foot of Small Carpathian Mountains 60 km North-east from Bratislava. The participants will also be accommodated in the Castle. Beautiful natural surrounding and attractive interiors of the Castle create a special atmosphere for scientific discussions, relaxation and meeting friends.
The final detailed scientific programme of the ALAMY_8 is available to download. It is traditionally aimed at the main alpha-amylase enzyme clan GH-H (i.e. families GH13, GH70 and GH77) as well as of the second alpha-amylase family GH57. Various aspects of starch and glycogen (in general an alpha-glucan) binding - mainly as distinct CBMs - are also involved, including also gut microbiome oriented studies as well as those focused on health and industrial topics.
Two Lifetime Achievement Awards - Prof. Atsuo Kimura (Sapporo, Japan) and Prof. Magali Remaud-Simeon (Toulouse, France) will be presented during the Award Ceremony on Wednesday 12 OCT, accompanied by Awards for the Best Poster and Best PhD-student.
All “amylase-positive” people are equally welcome!

There is also a possibility to publish a paper based on the ALAMY_8 contribution - in the Special Issue of the journal Molecules (MDPI) entitled Advances in Amylases. Everybody is welcome to submit a manuscript!
The number of participants is limited to ~80 due to the capacity of the Castle. Therefore the rule "first come - first served" has been used as the main base.
We are extremelly looking forward to welcoming you in Smolenice!
