The annual Society for Experimental Biology meeting is taking place this summer from June 29th to July 2nd in the city of Salzburg, Austria. Within the meeting a session will be dedicated to "Chloroplast Biogenesis". Attached is a leaflet providing details. We are privileged to have an exceptional panel of speakers. The session will take place on July 1st and 2nd. It may be of interest to many of you that on June 29th and 30th another session, organised by Steve Long (University of Illinois) and Richard Leegood (University of Sheffield) will be devoted to "Improving Photosynthesis".
Early registration for the meeting is open until May 11th, while the abstract submission deadline is May 4th. Additional talks will be selected from the abstracts submitted. Further details, registration information, and a full list of sessions are available at http://www.sebiology.org/meetings/Salzburg2012/Salzburg.html . The SEB runs a programme of student and early career scientist travel grants, details of which are available at http://www.sebiology.org/meetings/Salzburg2012/grants.html . Thanks to additional support from the Annals of Botany Trust, some further funds are expected to be available for early career scientists whose abstract is selected for a talk. An expression of interest should be emailed to either of the session organisers at the time of abstract submission.
We would be grateful if you could circulate this information to interested colleagues, and post the attached leaflet, and look forward to meeting many of you in Salzburg.
