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
