SEB’s Annual Meeting is celebrated for creating the perfect composition of research, new discoveries and collaborative connections.
SEB MEETING 2018 will be held in Florence from 3 – 6 July 2018 at the Firenze Fiera Congress and Exhibition Centre. SEB MEETING 2018 will find over 800 experimental biologists from across the globe converging on one of the world’s most famous homes of artistic treasures for the first time.
The showcasing of talent, scientific knowledge and recent discoveries will take centre stage at the Annual Meeting. SEB Annual Meeting will offer sessions on Animal Biology, Plant Biology and Cell Biolog, with sessions ranging from metabolic diversity to morphogenesis in non-flowering plants and quantitative synthetic biology to green microbes, an innovative, creative and engaging programme awaits you. Conference highlights include:
- Engage with over 800 attendees within the experimental biology community
- 9 parallel scientific sessions covering animal, plant and cell biology
- Opportunities to network with colleagues and build extraordinary connections
- Education sessions
- Career development workshops for young researchers
- Financial support and grants available to students and early career researchers
- Discounted registration fees for SEB members

Effects of climate change are becoming evident on forests and plants in urban environment. One of the most pronounced effects may be a decline in resistance to chronic stress and resilience to acute constrains. The capacity of plants in natural and urban forests to respond, to adapt and persist to climate change remains largely unknown. The meeting will address recent advances in understanding physiological and biochemical traits involved in plant resistant to environmental pressures caused by climate change and highlight insights emerging from recent studies on plant vulnerability in different environments (urban context and natural ecosystems), using a translational approach
