Section's Conference

Conferences of the Phycology Section

Every other year - inbetween the international Botanikertagung - the Section organizes a scientific conference to discuss latest reaserch results.

Next Meetings

Members will meet at the next Botanikertagung in Rostock in September 2019. The conference of our mother Society DBG will host at least wone session for phycologists and several other sessions will be of interest for phycologists as well (see first information)

The upcoming scientific Conference of the Phycology Section will be held in Kloster Steinfeld in der Eifel, Germany, 8th - 11th March 2020 and will be organised by Burkhard Becker (Cologne, Germany).

Algae to land plant transition

A meeting in Seville, Spain, on 30 June 2019, will focus on Algal model systems on the rise: Understanding and exploiting the algae to land plant transition. The programme organized by Henrik Buschmann (Osnabrück, Germany) and Andreas Holzinger (Innsbruck, Austria) is full of exciting speakers (see Conference Poster, pdf). They will be discussing the evolutionary novelties that enabled the Charophyte algae to colonize land and change the world forever. This meeting will aim to foster experimental research on Charophyte algae and will be covering areas including molecular biology, EvoDevo, phylogenomics and synthetic biology. Invited speakers are:

  • Pierre-Marc Delaux (Université de Toulouse, CNRS, France)
  • David Domozych (Skidmore College, USA)
  • Linda Graham (University of Wisconsin, USA)
  • Zoë Popper (National University of Ireland Galway, Ireland)
  • Stefan Rensing (University of Marburg, German)
  • Hiroyuki Sekimoto (Japan Women's University, Japan)
  • Burkhard Becker (University of Cologne, Germany)
  • Martha Cook (Illinois State University, USA)

The Meeting will take place shortly before the conference of SEB (Society of Experimental Biology, 2-5 July 2019)  featuring lots of plant biology (see SEB's poster, pdf).
