INDEPTH Main Meeting: El Escorial, Madrid

Monday, 10 June 2019

INDEPTH/SEB Plant Cell Symposium

We will have soon our next main meeting"Nucleus impact" co-organized with theSociety of Experimental Biology (SEB)that will be located next to Madrid at the fantastic place called El Escorial (9-11th of December 2019).

Geraint Parry, Monica Pradillo and few others are working hard to make this a special event and we already have a list of outstanding invited speakers (download flyer here).

Budget is always the main issue in organizing such a large meeting and options have been discussed in our last Core Group meeting in order to find the best solution to invite as many COST members as possible. We agreed to request a small registration fee NOT covered by the COST-Action although this will be kept low at 100€. If this poses a real problem, feel free to contact us. In addition, as you will see below, only 60 people can be funded by INDEPTH.

The registration process will be a bit more complicated than for the previous main meetings.

1) First you will be asked to register for the meeting on a INDEPTH registration page. At the moment the budget allows to invite 60 peopleincluding invited speakers and few people from industry, as we will organize anindustry workshop within the meeting. It will not be possible to invite all the COST members (we are now about 150 participants!). This means that we will make a first selection of COST participants based on MC participation, Core Group meetingparticipation and of course by selecting the best abstracts.

Deadline for the INDEPTH registrationis on September 6thand decisions will be given on September 13th 2019.

The INDEPTH registration site is now open at

Note that you will receive an e-mail together with a web link allowing you to modify the information up to the deadline. I strongly recommend to apply as soon as possible and to upload your abstract latest by early September.

2) As a second step, you will have to register at the SEB registration site. Geraint will give you more information later.

  • If you have been selected by the COST committee, you have to register to the SEB registration site but our fees will be refunded by INDEPTH.
  • If you are not selected by INDEPTH, we would still very much like you to attend the meeting. In this case you can register through the SEB registration site but fees will not be covered by INDEPTH.

The maximum number of attendees is 130.

I hope this information is clear enough but in any case, do not hesitate to drop your questions at

We look forward to seeing many of you at this unique event. Please do not delay in registering and submitting your abstract.

In the meantime, on behalf of the INDEPTH management team, I wish you an excellent year full of exciting scientific discoveries.
