the 54th Symposium of the International Association for Vegetation Science – IAVS

Lyon 2011

  Domaine de Rockefeller, 20 - 24 June 2011

 

The International Association for Vegetation Science (IAVS) is a worldwide union of scientists and others interested in theoretical and practical studies of vegetation: its composition and structure, history, classification, distribution, ecology, dynamics, management and uses in the landscape. The main goals of the IAVS are to facilitate personal contacts among vegetation scientists all over the world and to promote research in all aspects of vegetation science and its applications.

The 2011 Edition of the Symposium will be held in Lyon France. All aspects of plant ecology are welcome, and the special encouraged theme will be: vegetation in and around water-patterns, processes and threats.

The Symposium will offer the opportunity for contacts and exchange of knowledge about all aspects of vegetation science through lectures, workshops, poster sessions and excursions.

We invite you to participate through submission of abstracts for oral and poster sessions, and we encourage you to propose new topics and sessions !

The special theme is motivated by the particularly high vulnerability of vegetation communities in wetlands and aquatic ecosystems in the framework of global change. We hope this symposium will promote and reinforce discussions and international collaborations about all aspects of vegetation science, but most particularly about these threatened communities.

This symposium will also offer the opportunity to present to a large international community the exceptional ecological heritage of the Rhône-Alpes Region. Several mid symposium excursions are planed for the area around the city of Lyon, which will present several aspects of this biodiversity: wetlands, peatlands, calcareous grasslands, lakes and mountainous-forested ecosystems. A visit to the City of Lyon and the Botanical garden Parc de la Tête d’Or will also be available for the symposium participants.

EuroNanoForum 2011 - 30th May to 1st June 2011 - Budapest, Hungary

Start Date: 
Mon, 2011-05-30
End Date: 
Wed, 2011-06-01
May 30th, 2011, 12:00 am >> [EuroNanoForum 2011 takes place at the Budapest Congress and World Trade Center. The venue is situated close to the center of Budapest at Jagelló út 1-3, Budapest, H-1123.] >> contact: [nfo@euronanoforum2011.eu]

EuroNanoForum is a biannual event organised within the framework of the Presidency of the European

Union. EuroNanoForum 2011 will be the fifth event in this series, and will take place under the Hungarian

Presidency at the Budapest Congress and World Trade Center from 30th May to 1st June 2011.

EuroNanoForum 2011 has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme

(FP7/2007-2013) and the National Office for Research and Technology in Hungary.

EuroNanoForum 2011 reveals how nanotechnology can contribute to solving the grand challenges of our

time. The event covers research breakthroughs, industrial innovations and the societal impact of

nanotechnology.

For the first time, EuroNanoForum is joining forces with Nanotech Europe, a leading European

nanotechnology event produced by Spinverse, to provide a single meeting point for the whole

nanotechnology community.

The three-day event includes a full conference program, an extensive exhibition and effective

matchmaking, ensuring attendees will be able to network with leading industrial, research and political

decision makers.

Herbert von Bose, Director of the Industrial Technologies Programme, at the European Commission points

to the fact that “Europe needs to take advantage of the enormous potential that new nanotechnologies

hold in order to ensure our competitiveness and continued growth. It is essential that the different

nanotechnology players, from scientists to consumers, actively collaborate and develop new processes and

products in a responsible manner.

EuroNanoForum plays a major role in facilitating such collaboration. Europe need not only excellent science

but has to take full advantage of its results. ENF2011 is further very timely placed to discuss the vision for

the future, including the Innovation Union initiative.”

Dr. István Vadász, Vice President of Hungary’s National Office for Research and Technology (NKTH) states

that “Hungary has a long tradition of excellence in science. Our locally grown nanotechnology SMEs are

building international recognition in their fields of expertise, while our researchers explore further

promising avenues. Bringing together key scientific and industrial actors is as relevant as ever for Europe.

EuroNanoForum 2011 aims to inspire collaborations to meet Europe’s grand challenges and lead the

nanotechnology era.”

Pekka Koponen, CEO of Spinverse, adds that “We originally established Nanotech Europe to bring research

and industry together in order to stimulate the commercial development of nanotechnology. The

combination of EuroNanoForum and Nanotech Europe comes as an opportune time as we see the

industrial relevance of nanotechnology on target to increase substantially over the coming years.”
