1st International Plant Spectroscopy Conference 29-30 August 2017 at KBC

This is the first of a biannual international conference series that International Society for Plant Spectroscopy intend to organise, with the aim of bringing spectroscopy to plant scientists and plant sciences to spectroscopists.

  • 31 May 2017: Deadline for abstract submission
  • 30 June 2017: Selected spekaers notificed
  • 31 July 2017: Registration closes

We hope that this conference series will serve to open up a communication channel and to showcase the plethora of available spectroscopic techniques and their potential in plant sciences, benefiting both fields, from fundamental to applied research, from academic to industrial applications.

Session and keynote speakers are invited to represent major spectroscopic fields, with direct applications in plant sciences:

Vibrational (micro)spectroscopy:
Janina Kneipp, Humboldt-Universität, Berlin, Germany
Hartwig Schulz, Julius Kühn Institute, Quedlinburg, Germany

Synchrotron-based techniques:
Frédéric Jamme, SOLEIL, Paris, France

Mass spectroscopy-based techniques:
Helene Rogniaux, INRA Nantes, France

Auto-fluorescence based techniques:
Lloyd Donaldson, Scion Research, New Zealand

Data analysis techniques for spectroscopic data:
Anna de Juan, University of Barcelona, Spain

The conference programme will also include a visit to the instrumental core facilities of the Chemical Biological Centre (KBC) at Umeå University.
You can find more details, including the preliminary programme, registration fees and deadlines and other practical information on the conference website: http://conference.plantspec.org

You can also register online via the conference homepage.
