International symposium "Signals, Sensing and Plant Primary Metabolism", 6-10 October 2010, Germany
Invitation to the 4th Symposium on "Signals, Sensing and Plant Primary Metabolism"
An international symposium on "Signals, Sensing and Plant Primary Metabolism" will take place from October 6th to 9th, 2010, at the University of Potsdam, Germany. The conference venue is the Auditorium Maximum of the University, located right next to a former royal palace within the UNESCO World Heritage listed Park Sanssouci.
The main objective of the symposium is to present exciting new highlights in the field of regulation of plant primary metabolism. Invited speakers will give up-to-date reviews on recent achievements and current hypotheses. The meeting will promote scientific discussions and will identify key issues to be addressed in near-future research. Topics of the symposium are
Confirmed speakers (more speakers will be selected based on the submitted abstracts): Steven Ball (Lille, France), Hermann Bauwe (Rostock, Germany), John Gray (Cambridge, UK), Enrique Lopez-Juez (London, UK), Michel Havaux (Saint-Paul-lez-Durance, France), Michael Hodges (Orsay, France), David Kramer (Pullman, USA), Yasushi Koyama (Sanda, Japan), Werner Kühlbrandt (Frankfurt/Main, Germany), Ron Milo (Rehovot, Israel), Bernd Müller-Röber (Potsdam, Germany), Harald Paulsen (Mainz, Germany), George Ratcliffe (Oxford, UK), Sjef Smeekens (Utrecht, Netherlands), Sam Zeaman (Zürich, Switzerland).
Deadline for submission of abstracts: July 30, 2010; deadline for registration: August 31, 2010.
