December 8-10, 2014 City Hotel Ljubljana / Slovenia


Synthetic Biology of Cyanobacteria for Fuel Production

Welcome to Ljubljana!

We are proud to host the second major scientific meeting within the FP7 collaborative research project on design, construction and demonstration of solar biofuel production using novel synthetic cell factories. After the success of the 2013 meeting in Porto we hope to have another interesting event with plenty of new research results from all the project partners as well as from invited speakers who will join us. This meeting will be organized by the Ljubljana team (Marko Dolinar, Helena Čelešnik, Marina Klemenčič) and the project coordinator (Peter Linblad, Uppsala University).


VENUE

Ljubljana meeting will be organized in the 3-star City Hotel not far from Ljubljana Old Town and Ljubljanica river. Railway station and the Airport shuttle terminal are within easy stroll. The hotel has well equipped lecture halls and offers all the essential comfort to meeting participants, including free WiFi access.

Since the programme will start on December 8 in the morning, we advise that you plan your arrival to Ljubljana on December 7. Meeting will conclude on December 10 afternoon. You could leave Ljubljana on that same evening, but you are invited to prolong your stay for another day or two.


PROGRAMME


Programme will be organized in sessions. The first two days are devoted to progress reporting, project coordination and administration tasks, as well as discussions that are important for the successful completion of the project.

Day 3 is the ’open day’ on which the topic will be presented to students and collaborators. Invited lectures will be organized two sessions. The programme will be concluded by a discussion and wrap-up.
