The XV Congress of the Spanish Society of Nitrogen Fixation, and the IV PORTUGUESE-SPANISH Congress on Nitrogen Fixation.
This edition will be held in the historical city of León situated in the north-west of Spain from June 16th to 18th , 2015.
The Congress is open to all Researchers from public entities and private companies interested in the technological applications of the interactions between plants and microorganisms.
The main focus of the Congress will be agriculture and environmental applications. We would like to give a special welcome to our colleagues from other Nitrogen Fixation Nets, all over the world, in Europe, Asia, Australia, Latin America, Africa, and the USA.
The Latin American Association of Rhizobiology (Asociación Latino Americana de Rizobiología ALAR) shared with us the XIV SEFIN in the international Congress II IBEMPA in 2013, and the next III IBEMPA CONGRESS will be celebrated in 2017, so the XV SEFIN in 2015 is an exceptional occasion to meet again in between the two transatlantic Congresses.
This Congress is the only Iberian meeting for biotechnologists specialised on research about the sustainable exploitation of interactions between the microorganisms and the plants, and one of the most important for agrarian biotechnologists in general.
In the XV SEFIN the most edge-cutting advances will be presented, within the following sections:
Ecology, diversity, and evolution of Plant Probiotic Microorganisms (PPM)
Genetics, genomics and proteomics of PPM and their associated plants
Inoculants for agriculture and environmental science
Physiology and biochemistry of beneficial microorganisms and associated plants
