International Symposium: Wood Structure in Plant Biology and Ecology (WSE) – Naples,17-20 April 2013

Segnalato da: Roberto Tognetti

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the International Symposium “Wood Structure in Plant Biology and Ecology” (WSE) that will take place in Naples, on 17-20 April 2013.
The Symposium will be organized by the Department of Environmental Science of the Second University of Naples and by the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Naples Federico II, on behalf of the Association of tree-ring research (ATR) and the Afro-European Group of the International Association of Wood Anatomists (IAWA).

The WSE Workshop will be an opportunity to exchange knowledge and experience in all contemporary key aspects of the wood structure as integrated in Plant Biology and Ecology. The objective of the WSE workshop is to provide a forum for anatomists, dendrochronologists, isotopists, eco-physiologists, paleoclimatologists and climate modelers to present recent findings, to exchange know-how and technologies. It will help addressing methodological issues in cross-disciplinary and cross-scale studies.

The deadline for abstracts is 31 December 2012.

Awards will be awarded to Young Scientists for the best oral presentation and best poster. Information regarding logistics, registration, submission of abstract and preparation of short papers for the Symposium proceedings are available on the web-page:

We hope that you will be able to join us for this engaging workshop!
