First European Congress on Photosynthesis Research, ePS-1
A Marcus Wallenberg Symposium

ePS-Young meeting

We are pleased to invite PhD students, post-docs and other young scientists to present their research at ePS-1-Young. The ePS-1-Young meeting will take place during the weekend (24th - 25th of June) before the main meeting.

The aim of this meeting is to provide a forum for young scientists to present and discuss their research amongst each other in an informal atmosphere. We also like to promote an environment for young researchers to build networks amongst each other.


The theme of the ePS-Young meeting broadly mirrors the main meeting:

Photosynthesis: physiology, structure and mechanisms.

Global photosynthesis: improving crops, forests and relationship between photosynthesis and climate

Solar fuels: Artificial photosynthesis, microbial photosynthetic products.

Two keynote lectures will be given by Professor Ferdi Schüth, vice president of the Max-Planck-Society, and by Professor Michael R. Wasielewski, executive director of the Solar Fuels Institute at Northwestern University.

The meeting will take place at the Ångström Laboratory in Uppsala. Oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts. In order to provide more opportunities for young researchers to highlight their own science, there will also be flash poster presentations (3 min each), followed immediately by poster sessions to encourage active discussions. In addition to scientific presentations we are organizing social outings and lab tours at the Ångström laboratory, and a dinner. An overview of the program is found in the PDF-file to the right on this page.
