ICA 2018

12th International Conference on Agrophysics (ICA) 2018: Soil, Plants & Climate

Mon, 17 Sep 2018 – Wed, 19 Sep 2018

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the forthcoming 12th International Conference on Agrophysics, Lublin, Poland, 17-19th September 2018.

In common with previous conferences, the 12th ICA will focus on soil, plants and climate which are the tightly interlinked components of a natural system that forms the foundation of our sustainable food security and the bioeconomy. We warmly invite world-leading scientists and young researchers interested in either, soil, plants or climate change to create a cross-disciplinary scientific forum with the aim of discussing how to ensure the sustainability of the system. We believe that this event will be an excellent opportunity for establishing project-oriented network(s) for future collaborative research on the soil-plant-climate system.

In order to facilitate cross-disciplinary discussion, the 12th ICA will be organized in consecutive sessions:

  • Session 1: Soil and Plants
  • Session 2: Food and biomass
  • Session 3: Climate change

Associated Workshop:

We invite all ICA participants to take part, without any additional fee, in our associated workshop:  2nd Workshop on Fruit Structure. The workshop is the second edition, after Fruit Structure 2015 was organized at Agrocampus Ouest, Angers, France. The objective of the 2nd Fruit Structure is to share results among scientists from different disciplines who are working to improve our level of understanding of the structure of fleshy fruit, it is centred around three themes:

  • Genetics and the development of fruit structure
  • Modelling of fruit structure and structure-related processes
  • Tools used to characterize fruit structure
