3rd IMBALANCE-P annual meeting – Paris, 1st – 3th February 2017

IMBALANCE_P_Logo_Color_kick off abstractsThe ERC Synergy Imbalance-P project has been running for two years already. A lot of work has been done and some other still needs to be carried out. It is, therefore, time for us to meet again in a confortable city such as Paris.

The format will be similar to last time, researchers will present some of their work/results/projects within the Imbalance-P in short talks of about 15 minutes allowing participants to ask some questions. It is also planned to have time to allow researchers to discuss within the different working groups (experimental, synthesis, modelling…) and among them.

The main aims of the Paris meeting are to:

  1. Present and discuss past, present and future work within the Imbalance-P project.
  2. Share and discuss the results obtained by the different groups.
  3. Develop synergies amongst groups and researchers by increasing collaboration through sharing thoughts, ideas, objectives, experiments, observations and data.
  4. Create a venue where co-authors of different manuscripts can get together to forward their writing and possibilities for such activities to be initiated.
