It is our pleasure to announce the XXIII Meeting of the Spanish Society of Plant Physiology and the XVI Hispano-Portuguese Congress of Plant Physiology, which will be held in Pamplona from June 26 to 28, 2019.
The Congress will be divided into 11 sessions that will cover the main areas of Plant Biology (Metabolism & Biochemistry; Applied Physiology & Molecular Breeding; Signaling; Ecophysiology & Climate Change; Interaction of Plants with other Organisms; Photosynthesis, Water Relations & Crop Production; Abiotic Stress; Biofertilizers, Biostimulants and Mineral Nutrition; Systems Biology & Omics; Growth & Development; Plant Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology). In addition, the Congress will include several sessions aimed at disseminating science to society, especially to young people, and promote technology transfer between the academia and agro-related companies.
As in previous editions, we want this series of meetings to be a forum to publicize the latest conceptual and technological advances in Plant Biology, leading in turn to the exchange and dissemination of ideas among participants. In addition, we aim to raise awareness in society about the importance of research on plant biology. Nearly 400 scientists (many of them at the forefront of research) from the Academia and private companies from several countries will meet in this conference to exchange their ideas and create or consolidate avenues for collaboration.
As the organizers, we would like to encourage all researchers who study the various aspects of plant systems to contribute to the success of this conference by attending and presenting their work.
The conference will be held at Baluarte, a Congress Palace that is located in the city centre of Pamplona. Pamplona is a medium-size cosmopolitan city that has been able to grow preserving its historical enclaves, as the medieval city, the renaissance citadel, the modernist expansion, etc. Its parks and gardens breath air into the city thanks to their abundant vegetation, and offer sanctuary to those in search of peace and quiet.
The conference will be held few days before the Saint Fermin holidays starting the 6th of July. During those days Pamplona offers multiple cultural, social and gastronomic possibilities, which we hope you will also enjoy.
As the Organizing Committee, we will be committed to make this conference a great scientific success and ensure that you have a pleasant stay in Pamplona.
Looking forward to seeing you in Pamplona.
The Organizing Committee
