This event is being curated by the Wageningen PhD Council, with an audience of about 150 PhD students and faculty members in Wageningen. Goal is to bring together early career researchers from across all disciplines to give idea-focused talks that foster learning, inspiration, and wonder – and eventually, provoke conversations that matter.
The theme of this conference is Societal geo-innovation. It is a great event to discuss the embedding of geo-information in society: What has been the societal impact of geo-innovations over the past 20 years? What state-of-the art geo-information science topics will boost societal changes within the nearest future?
This workshop is primarily intended for experimental biologists, who are looking for alternative low-cost approaches in different fields of plant phenotyping. The workshop will include lectures, demonstrations, hands-on and discussions on different topics like smartphone applications and programming.
In this symposium, five renown ecologists from across the globe will share their most recent insights regarding soil-plant interactions providing an exciting playground for discovering novel ecological and evolutionary interactions between the aboveground- and belowground world.
Pedometrics 2017 will be a joint meeting of the Pedometrics Commission and five of its associated Working Groups. This will be an excellent opportunity to present and discuss your work and learn about recent developments in quantitative soil science. We will also look 25 years back and 25 years ahead.
The conference aims at, asking what is at stake in contestations over appropriate standards for measuring and valuing ‘life’? How is ‘life’ variously categorized and defined in such different systems of measure? What are the oppositions, trade-offs, and potential complementarities between quantitative and qualitative assessments?
Central theme will be Rhythms of Life and their Alterations (including both early development and aging); however, the conference expects to encompass all aspects, numerous phyla, and a range of technical approaches to understanding and applying knowledge of invertebrate reproduction and development.
This symposium will cover a wide spectrum of topics, from planetary evolution to the fabrication of synthetic cells. Besides invited talks, the conference includes a keynote lecture by Ben Feringa (2016 Nobel laureate in chemistry), and a public lecture by Charley Lineweaver.
The five core conference themes (Food creation, Food safety and bio security, Food loss and waste, Food in a changing society, Food utilization) reflect an integrated approach to identifying solutions to the complex global challenge of food security.
The British Ecological Society (BES), NecoV and the Gesellschaft für Ökologie (GfÖ) aim to build closer ties between the vibrant academic ecological communities in Europe, and herewith meet the strategic objectives of all three of the ecological Societies.
