I am pleased to call your attention to the first announcement of the upcoming IUFRO Tree Biotechnology Conference 2011 to be held in Porto Seguro, Bahia Brazil, from June 26 to July 1, 2011.
For more information please download the first announcement flier at:
Conference theme: From genomes to integration and delivery
Forest trees have unquestionably entered the genomic era. The updated Poplar genome, the upcoming Eucalyptus genome and the concerted efforts towards a conifer genome sequence are increasingly fueling a multitude of studies and applications both in sustainable forest production and conservation. Besides wood development, disease resistance, abiotic stress and reproductive biology, tree biotechnology research is now addressing the challenges of bioenergy production and carbon sequestration, while generating fundamental information on the impact of trees on ecosystems and the associated biodiversity. Time calls for integration rather than reduction with an increased sense of urgency for delivery of effective biotechnologies.
Brazil welcomes you to IUFRO Tree Biotech 2011
The 2011 edition of the Tree Biotech Conference will be in Brazil, a country with an outstanding forestry aptitude. We are very pleased to invite you to come down to experience the dazzling coast of southern Bahia in Porto Seguro, a key historical site where Brazil was first "discovered" by the Portuguese navigators and next door to some of the most productive plantation forest sites on earth. You can check the beautiful conference venue at www.arraialresort.com.br.
Tree Biotech 2011: science, social and field
The conference will provide an exceptional mix of science, social activities and field exploration. We are inviting some of the top international scientists to share their latest results and vision on biotechnology and related fields. We will strongly encourage both oral and poster presentations from a breadth of the international tree research community. In a full day of field visits, delegates will have a chance to visit Veracel's Eucalyptus clonal forests and micro-cutting nursery, its modern 1.2 M tons/yr pulp mill and its outstanding Atlantic Forest Biodiversity Station, all of them in a 50 km range from the conference venue. Last, but by no means least, besides the wonderful beaches, we plan for an appealing social program built upon the amazing musical and dancing traditions of Bahia to provide a very relaxed and informal environment to help foster very productive scientific interactions.
More information coming soon
A website for the Conference will be up very soon with the first call for papers and more detailed information on paper submission and publication, registration, accommodation, social program, travel and visa information. English is the official language. The organizing committee is working to secure governmental and industrial sponsorships to facilitate the broadest participation possible.
So mark the conference on your 2011 calendar, June 26 - July 1. We look forward to welcoming you in person!
