Invitation to the 3rd international Leibniz Plant Biochemistry Symposium
Plants are masters of adaptation. They almost have always means to defend themselves against pathogens, climate fluctuations, and extreme weather conditions.
Only with their sensitive antennas and emergency call programs have they been able to survive for millions of years. Looking for allies in this battle is part of their survival strategy.
They interact with fungi, bacteria, and insects in order to ward off enemies or to attract the enemies of their enemies. Plant network tactics are the focus of the 3rd Leibniz Plant Biochemistry Symposium in Halle an der Saale.
Seven high-ranking plant experts from Germany and Israel will present their latest research results for discussion at this international symposium on 22 and 23 June 2017 at the Leibniz Institute of Plant Biochemistry.
Anyone interested, in particular students and young scientists, is cordially invited to this unique gathering of experts in central Germany. Admission is free. Registration is required however because space is limited. Please visit our website for the program and further information for registration.

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
