Mission: So far, the only available forum where the plant cytoskeleton community could exchange ideas and concepts was the Gordon Conference on Plant and Fungal Cytoskeletal taking place every second year in the US. The European plant cytoskeletal community has been growing over the last years and has made links to other fields of science, such as developmental biology or stress physiology. This was not reflected appropriately in the usual plant conferences (where cell biology is marginal) or cell biology symposia (where plant biology is marginal). Starting from 2015 in Prague, the European Plant Cytoskeletal Club (EPCC) organises annual meetings to exchange data, ideas, and to discuss future cooperations. The idea is to move this meeting throughout Europe to reach a maximal number of researchers, especially young scientists. In 2017, the EPCC reaches the first time Germany and will take place in Karlsruhe.
Time and Venue: The III. EPCC will take place Monday, June 19 - Tuesday, June 20, 2017 in the Fasanenschlössle Karlsruhe. Built in 1764 as a small hunting lodge for the Dukes of Baden, the Fasanenschlössle is situated in the park of Karlsruhe Castle, just at the border of the KIT Campus. The talks will take place in the main auditory, coffee and lunch will be provided on site (vegetarian meals are available). The poster session will take place in the attic of the Botanical Garden of the KIT, which is located in walking distance from the Fasanenschlössle.
Programme: The programme will consist of Key Note talks giving a survey on a topic, Research Reports on specific topics, and a Workshop for Young Scientists to exchange methods and experiences, and to discuss potential cooperations.
Conference Dinner: This will take place at the evening of Monday, June 19 and is not included in the conference fee.
Registration: >>>>HERE<<<<. will be closed May 15.
