We are pleased to invite you to attend the 9th European Symposium on Plant Lipids, to be held from July 7th to the 10th 2019, in Marseille, a vibrant Mediterranean port and the oldest city in France.

The European Symposium on Plant Lipids (ESPL) is an international conference, showcasing the key roles of lipids in plant/algal development, physiology and biotechnology applications. It is the best and most renown European conference dedicated to the study and biotechnological applications of lipids, already having almost 20 years of history. The 9th ESPL conference will be held in Marseille, France and will provide an excellent opportunity to illuminate the very best of current advances in the field of plant and algal lipids. ESPL has the long tradition of gathering world leading plant/algal lipid scientists to share and discuss the latest results in the areas of lipid research and to point future directions. Up to now, the ESPL congresses, from very fundamental aspects towards the biotechnological applications of lipid molecules, have brought together more than 120 top leading scientists from all around the world every two years. This has helped to build a global network of scientists in the field.
