Background. In 2015 the “12th International Meeting on Cholinesterases” and the “Sixth International Conference on Paraoxonase” are going to celebrate as a join meeting in Elche (Alicante, Spain). It is structured by scientific sessions (along 5 days). Posters, long lectures of the invited speakers and other shorter talks selected from the abstract received will be presented. The Organizing Committee is advised by the International Boards for the scientific program. The meeting will include invited conferences and free communication (oral and poster) in any issue related with cholinesterases, paraoxonases and related esterases and proteins dealing with their different aspects (i.e: structure, function, biology, pharmacology, toxicology, therapy, forensy, related diseases, epidemiology) and different approaches (i.e: basic experimental molecular-cellular research, in vivo studies, human clinical or epidemiological studies). Posters will be exposed during all the meeting in the same area for the coffee break.

The cholinesterase and PON previous meetings. The International Conference on Paraoxonase is a biennial event that began in 2004. Previous conferences were held at the University of Michigan (USA), the University of Debrecen (Hungary), the University of California (USA), Centre de Recerca Biomedica (Spain), and The Ohio State University (USA). Cholinesterase meetings were held in Yugoslavia (1975 and 1983), then in France (1990), Israel (1992), India (1994), USA (1998), Chile (2002), Italy (2004), China (2007), Croatia (2009) and the last one in Russia (2012). Each of these meetings was a great opportunity for scientists in the field of cholinesterases and enzymes reacting with organophosphates. These two meetings had been done regularly every 2-3 years with join participation of researchers from several countries.
