Boron satellite meeting 19th August 2017

Following the very successful boron satellite meetings in 1997, 2001, 2005 and 2013 we will organize Boron2017 as a satellite meeting of IPNC2017 in Copenhagen. Boron deficiency and toxicity remain major agricultural problems. IPNC2017 in Copenhagen will bring together scientists from around the world to discuss recent developments in boron biology and boron in agriculture. We warmly welcome all you who work on boron or have interests in boron to attend and present your research.

Please note that the satellite meetings on boron and manganese will be held in Copenhagen 19-20 August 2017, at the Copenhagen Plant Science Center (www.cpsc.ku.dk), University of Copenhagen.

Detailed travel informations can be downloaded HERE.Find parking detalis HERE.

Shuttle busses from Tivoli Hotel & Congress Center to Copenhagen Plant Science Center will depart 7:45 Saturday morning, and return again 20.00 in the evening.
