It is my pleasure to announce you that we are organizing
on behalf of the Asociación de Palinólogos de Lengua Española (APLE), the Gruppo di Palinologia e Paleobotanica della Società Botanica Italiana (GPPSBI) and the Association des Palynologues de Langue Française (APLF).
The Mediterranean Palynology Symposium 2017 will be held in Barcelona city center (UPF School of Management, Balmes 132-134), in September 4 – 6, 2017.
For the first time, three palynological societies around the Mediterranean (from Spain, Italy and France) plus palynologists from Greece, organize a joint Symposium. The diversity of pollen and spores related themes, together with the multiculturalism of the participants, will provide a forum for analysis, discussion and ideas exchange around the latest research offering great opportunities for interdisciplinary future collaborations.
Barcelona is a cosmopolitan city that promises to be a wonderful Symposium venue. It offers excellent possibilities for the development of the scientific meeting as well as a bunch of opportunities for the free time. It is an easy connected destination, has excellent hotels and restaurants for all budgets, monuments, parks, shopping, market squares and other places to visit, as well as beaches, urban and peri-urban forests and fluvial areas that surround it. The nightlife offers are non-negligible. The public transport system helps to reach everything that is not in walking distance.
I look forward to seeing you at the Symposium!
MedPalyno 2017 President
