The 8th International Workshop on Anthocyanins will be held in Montpellier (France), an historical city in the South of France with beautiful landscapes, located just a few kilometers from the Mediterranean coast, which can be easily reached via Montpellier-Méditerranée international Airport or by train. The proximity of many European countries with numerous R&D groups working on anthocyanins will surely contribute to the success of this edition. IWA 2015 is an opportunity for academics and industrials to establish contacts with other scientists working with anthocyanins worldwide.

Opening lecture

                       Dr. Mary Ann Lila
                       Director, Plants for Human Health Institute
                       North Carolina State University


  • Session 1- Biosynthesis

                       Invited Speaker : Dr. Laura Jaakola
                       Department of Arctic and Marine Biology
                       University of Tromsø

La 8e Conférence Internationale sur les Anthocyanes, IWA 2015, se déroulera à Montpellier (France), sur le campus de Montpellier SupaAgro, du 16 au 18 septembre 2015. Montpellier, cité historique située dans le sud de la France, à quelques km de la méditerranée, est facilement accessible par le train ou via l'aéroport international Montpellier Méditerranée. IWA est le seul congrès international consacré exclusivement aux anthocyanes, depuis leur biosynthèse dans les plantes et leur rôle dans les interactions entre plantes et environnement, en passant par leur analyse et leurs propriétés physico-chimiques, jusqu’à leur impact sur la santé et la nutrition et leur importance pour l’industrie. IWA 2015 permettra aux  scientifiques et aux industriels participants  de faire le point sur l'état d'avancement des recherches sur les anthocyanes dans divers domaines et d'établir des contacts avec les autres chercheurs qui s'intéressent à ces molécules au niveau international. La proximité de nombreux groupes de recherche et de R&D intéressés par ces composés contribuera surement au succès de cette édition.
