14th World Congress of the Human Proteome
Vancouver Convention Centre *VANCOUVER , CANADA
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is a great pleasure and an honor to extend to you a warm invitation to attend the 14th Human Proteome Organization World Congress (HUPO 2015), to be held September 27 – 30, 2015 at the Vancouver Convention Centre, East Building in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Building on the success of preceding Congresses in Sydney, Boston, Yokohama and Madrid, the theme of the 2015 meeting ‘Translating Proteomics and Allied -Omics to the Clinic’ will underpin the need for collaboration and cooperation of individuals from a wide range of professional backgrounds.
Vancouver is an exceptional location for the Congress. It is renowned as one of the world’s outstanding convention cities, with the sparkling Pacific Ocean and towering Coast Mountains providing a unique and spectacular setting. The HUPO 2015 Congress will be held in the East Building of the Vancouver Convention Centre right under the famous sails and perched on the edge of the Pacific Ocean with wonderful space for both scientific presentations and commercial exhibition.
The social program highlighting our West Coast cuisine, unique culture and arts, combined with the breathtaking natural beauty and pre- and post congress meetings and tours will underscore the role of Vancouver as one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations.
The HUPO 2015 Congress will provide a wonderful forum for you to refresh your knowledge base and explore the innovations in proteomics and genomics. The Congress will strive to offer plenty of networking opportunities, providing you with the opportunity to meet and interact with the leading scientists and researchers, friends and colleagues as well as sponsors and exhibitors.
We hope you will join us for a symphony of outstanding science, and take a little extra time to enjoy the spectacular and unique beauty of this region.

A discount on registration fees will be offered to all delegates who book accommodation through the official housing bureau.
The Congress Secretariat (International Conference Services Ltd.) is the official housing bureau for the HUPO 2015 World Congress and will offer assistance with the coordination of housing requirements for the Congress. We are currently negotiating special room rates with more than 10 hotels in close proximity to the Vancouver Convention Centre. Special rates and added complimentary amenities will only be available to delegates who book through the official housing bureau. In addition discounted registration rates will be available to all delegates who book accommodation through the official housing bureau.
Although the associations and the housing bureau will do their due diligence and negotiate the lowest possible group rates, we cannot predict future specials hosted by competing hotels. However, we urge all sponsors, exhibitors and delegates to support the Congress and book through the official housing bureau. The success of the Congress and the supporting associations depends on you using the contracted hotels.
The HUPO World Congress cannot meet the contracted room obligations if sponsors, exhibitors and delegates book outside the official housing bureau. Rooms that are not filled because of that create an expense for the Congress in form of financial penalties (attrition charges) and place the financial success of the Congress at risk, which increases with each delegate, exhibitor and sponsor not booking through the official housing bureau.
Please check back for updates on some of the great hotels we are securing to make your stay in Vancouver even better.
If you have any questions, please contact the Housing and Registration Manager at: hupo2015-registration at icsevents.com.
