The registration for FLOWER’s first conference is open !

We are happy to announce that the first conference organised by the FLOWER project is scheduled next 24,25, 26th April 2019 and will take place in Nantes in Westotel Nantes Atlantique (La Chappelle sur Erdre, 44, FR).

This event is organised by the partner INRA, jointly with the GDR SYMBIOSE.

All the information for submission and registration can be found in the conference website:

The registration for these three days is free but mandatory. You can join us by submitting an abstract before 05th March for an oral presentation or a poster or just participate without communication.

The organisation of these common days has a twofold aim:

On the first hand, the idea is to bring together scientific communities having mutual concerns about cell walls knowledge, relation between structureand performances of these walls and research of application solutions.

On the other hand, the respective contribution of these two groups and the exchanges expected should enable the emergence of issues as well as interdisciplinary and extended topics for the attendees.
