Dear colleagues,

 

The FACE2FACE conference titled ‘FACEing the future – food production and ecosystems under a changing climate’ which took place from the 26th to 29th of September 2016 was a great success!

 

In these four days, young and well established scientists from all over the world working on or with the data from FACE experiments met in Giessen. The presentations of well-known keynote speakers and the excellent quality of the talks in the sessions initiated lively discussions.

The very interesting excursions to the Giessen and Geisenheim FACE sites took place under best weather conditions and were completed by the outstanding conference dinner in the old wine cellars of a sparkling wine producer in Geisenheim.

 

We hope that all of the members of the conference had a good trip back home and keep their time on the conference in fondest memories.

 

All the best,


The Organizing Team

How will primary production react to increasing atmospheric CO2 and temperatures? Will yields and food quality change? What are the feedbacks between soil, plants and the atmosphere? Will ecosystem functioning change? And do experimentalists monitor what modellers need for their projections?

The international conference "FACEing the future | food production and ecosystems" from September 26-29, 2016, will bring together leading scientists to discuss these issues and many more in a number of sessions. The conference will be hosted by the FACE2FACE consortium at Justus Liebig University Giessen

A number of side events will provide plenty of opportunities to get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere, and explore future collaborations and new scientific ideas.

 

We will have the following sessions:

Session 1: Nutrient cycling

Session 2: Phyllosphere, pests and pathogens

Session 3: Yields and food quality

Session 4: Advances in FACE and manipulation techniques

Session 6: Ecophysiology

Session 7: Modelling and meta-analysis

Session 8: Trace gas emissions
