Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 8th European Symposium on Plant Lipids to be held in the City of Malmö 2-5th July 2017. Malmö can be reached conveniently by train or flights to Copenhagen and then a 20 min train trip over the bridge connecting Sweden and Denmark.

The conference will take place at Scandic Hotel in the city center of Malmö, a bustling town where Swedish traditions are fertilized by a large number of influences from the whole world (and the home of football star Zlatan Ibrahimović).

Apart from covering most recent achievements in both basic and applied Plant Lipid Science the conference will also cover emerging topics related to lipids that have not been much covered in previous meetings, such as the role of lipids in plant autophagy. Apart from invited speakers introducing the different sessions, short talks will be selected from submitted abstracts in each session. There will also be a poster session with prestigious prices for two selected posters presented by Ph.D. students.

We are sure that you will have both a social and a scientific rewarding two and a half day in Malmö and look forward to seeing you there.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee
