ETHYLENE 2018 Symposium

The XI International Symposium on the Plant Hormone Ethylene

June 2-6, 2018, Conference Center of the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania, Crete, GREECE

ETHYLENE meetings are an international affiliation of researchers working on all aspects of ETHYLENE, including investigations spanning from biosynthetic/sensing/transductive/responsive mechanisms to assessing the biological activities of this hormone. This affiliation hosts meetings every 3-4 years that took place in Europe, USA, New Zealand and China for the past two decades. The X meeting (ETHYLENE2015) was held in Chongqing (China) November 2015 and was organized by Professor Zhengguo LI, Chongqing University.

The 2018 meeting is organized by Prof. Angelos Kanellis, Prof. Mondher Bouzayen and Dr. Panagiotis Kalaitzis in close collaboration with the Scientific Organizing committee.

The scientific program of EHYELENE2018 will cover all aspects of Ethylene research including ethylene biosynthesis, signal transduction and responses, ethylene in growth-development and fruit ripening, cross-talk between ethylene and other hormones, ethylene in flower physiology and senescence of plant organs, in abiotic stresses, in pathogenesis and disease resistance, and postharvest physiology. Talks and poster presentations contributed by investigators from around the world are anticipated to exhibit the most advanced knowledge and pioneering works in the field of ethylene research. In addition to invited speakers, talks will be selected from submitted abstracts to assure complete coverage of the latest breakthroughs and cutting-edge advancements.
