Thank You

In name of the Local Organising Committee we would like to thank all attendants of the 8th European Nitrogen Fixation Conference held in Ghent for your enthusiastic participation, your wonderful scientific contributions and your kind words of support and appreciation during and after the meeting.

This Conference was the 8th in a series of Conferences that brings together researchers with a passion for biological nitrogen fixation. With 305 participants coming from 34 countries we may conclude that the community is alive and kicking! Going back to the goal of these meetings - to strengthen European collaborations in the field, to foster scientific and technological cooperation between Europe and the rest of the world, particularly with developing countries, and to offer a training ground for junior researchers - we are confident that this edition stood up to the previously set standard.

As a final update of this website we provide you with dedicated links to the pdf versions of the abstract books of the 8th European Nitrogen Fixation Conference and the 11th International Symposium on Nitrogen Fixation with Non-Legumes.

We also like to share with you some pictures that were taken throughout the scientific and social program of the 8th European Nitrogen Fixation Conference. Scrolling through these images it seems you all had a good time, we certainly did!

We are very pleased to announce that Hans-Martin Fischer and Xavier Perret have agreed to organise the 9th European Nitrogen Fixation Conference in 2010.  The meeting will take place from 6 - 10 September, 2010 at the Centre International de Conférences Genève.

It was our pleasure to organise this event for you and we hope to see again at the 9th European Nitrogen Fixation Conference!

Marcelle, Sofie and Danny
