3rd ISPMF Conference Helsinki, FI

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure and honor to welcome you to the 3rd Conference of the International Society of Plant Molecular Farming. The 3rd ISPMF Conference will take place in the amazing city of Helsinki, from the 11th to the 13th of June, 2018. We have selected the Helsinki Congress Paasitorni, established already in 1908, as the meeting venue. Paasitorni is located by the sea in the city center in close vicinity of the Hakaniemi market place and Hakaniemi metro station. The meeting itself takes place in the Congress Hall of Paasitorni, the pearl of Paasitorni with its tall ceilings, splendid chandeliers and impressive balconies.

The topics addressed by the Conference will cover the whole palette of interests for the Plant Molecular Farming community, covering all possible aspects of recombinant proteins and bioactive small molecules. The Conference will provide a delightful forum for the attendees to improve their scientific knowledge and explore the latest outcomes and trends in the field. It will offer plenty of networking opportunities, interaction with leading scientists, and stimulating creative exchange among researches and people working in the respective industries.

June is a splendid time of the year to visit Helsinki. The midnight sun allows us to continue discussions outdoors until dawn and over - be ready for an intensive 60 hour package. In the Helsinki city you can find places to listen the sound of silence, for example in the fortress of Suomenlinna - not typical for all capitals in Europe. Helsinki offers a wide variety of attractions to explore: the Market Square with its seagulls, the Esplanade Park with the beautiful Kappeli restaurant building and the option for a lawn picnic, wonderful well-preserved architecture and historic monuments, design, delicious traditional food, and great natural sightseeing opportunities in the Finnish archipelago.

We hope you will join us for this outstanding scientific event, the 3rd ISPMF, and take a little extra time to enjoy the remarkable and exceptional beauty of Helsinki!

With best wishes,

The Organizing Committee
