   Autophagy is an essential cellular process that mediates continuous
   recycling of intracellular components and becomes an alternative
   source of energy when nutrients are scarce. Novel roles of autophagy
   in embryogenesis, development, cellular defence and cell death have
   emerged from recent studies, along with growing evidence of
   associations between autophagic dysfunction and disease. However, a
   deeper understanding of the molecular effectors and regulators of
   autophagy is still required if we are to effectively repair, restore
   or modulate autophagy in whole organisms for therapeutic purposes.
   This meeting will bring together experts in different areas of cell
   biology, genetics, cellular pathophysiology and metabolism to foster
   multidisciplinary discussions intended to advance our knowledge about
   the different autophagic mechanisms, their regulation and their
   contribution to normal cell functioning and to disease.
