20-21 November 2023 / INRAE, Versailles

2nd Workshop Carbon Allocation in Plants - Advances in carbon allocation and acquisition

 Update on the scientific program

Only a few days left before the closing date for early registration and submissions
 Early registration deadline : 1st October 2023
 Abstract submission deadline: 1st October 2023
Late registration deadline : 15th October 2023


Plant biomass and the quality of plant products depend on carbon acquisition and allocation from photosynthetic organs to harvested organs. These processes reflect a balance between consumption, storage and long-distance transport of carbohydrates, regulated at multiscale cellular, tissular and organ levels. It depends on the central and energetic metabolisms coordinated with sugar homeostasis in subcellular compartments, sugar transport and signaling mechanisms. The second edition of "Carbon Allocation in Plants Workshop" - focusing on carbon allocation and acquisition - will address molecular physiology, modelling, and ecophysiology approaches to study carbon allocation. It aims to bring together European scientists working in this field to discuss the latest advances and their applications.
Six sessions are organized: 1) Sugar transport in the plant, 2) Carbon uptake and storage in plants, 3) Modelling and source-sink relationships, 4) Sugar homeostasis in contrasting environments, 5) Sugar allocations and interactions of plants with microorganisms and pests, 6) Ecophysiology of the carbon cycle. A round table organized by the GDR 'Integrated Biology of CO2 Capture (IBCO2)' will discuss French initiatives for research on CO2 capture, carbon allocation and storage.

This will be the second edition of this workshop (first edition in 2021), it will be held in Versailles.

The international scientific committee is composed of Nathalie Pourtau (Ecology and Biology of Interactions Unit (EBI), CNRS/the University of Poitiers), John Lunn (Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, Golm, Germany), Ekkehard Neuhaus (Department of Plant Physiology, University of Kaiserslautern, Kaiserslautern, Germany), Ruth Stadler (Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nurenberg, Molecular Plant Physiology, Erlangen, Germany), and Sylvie Dinant (Institut Jean Pierre Bourgin (IJPB) - INRAE Versailles).
