Informations related to the international conference
Welcome note - Invitation
We cordially invite you to the International Conference on ‚Retrograde Signaling in Plants’, which is held from October 1st to 3rd, 2009, at the Harnack-Haus of the Max-Planck-Society in Berlin-Dahlem, Germany.
The aim of the international conference is to provide for the first time a forum for the presentation and discussion of all aspects of intracellular exchange of information enabling communication among the cellular compartments. This year’s conference will focus on the retrograde signaling pathways derived from chloroplasts and mitochondria. The conference offers a fruitful exchange of information from scientists of different research fields, such as biochemistry, genetics, cell biology, bioinformatics, structural biology, system biology. We wish to give adequate opportunities for all scientists in these research fields and encourage especially PhD students and young scientists to register to the meeting.
We invited scientists for keynote lectures of each session of the meeting. In addition, shorter oral presentations, which will be selected from the abstract information, and poster presentations complete the program.
The conference will be held at the Harnack-Haus of the Max-Planck-Society. The venue offers accommodation for around 100 participants and ample opportunities to meet and to socialize during and after the formal scientific program. Deadline for registration will be August 31st 2009, but is principally closed when the maximum number of 100 attendants is reached.
We wish to compile an attractive agenda with state of the art scientific highlights and would be pleased to initiate an international network for research on intracellular communication in plants.
You can look forward to a few challenging days on which you will meet friends, colleagues and experts from several different countries.
