About the Conference
The Conference will focus on plant development and the plant's interaction with the environment in shaping plant architecture. Understanding how the bodyplan of a plant is implemented and overall plant architecture is achieved is not only a challenging and exciting scientific goal but will also have a profound impact in agriculture and plant biotechnology.
Topics covered will include root, shoot and leaf development, flowering and reproduction, and the response of the plant to biotic and abiotic stresses.
Matera (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/670/video) is a most spectacular ancient town in southern Italy and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as a culturally very lively city: a superb setting for the scientific excellence of the Conference.
