Prof. Mancuso @ Internet of Everything Italian Forum 31.01.14

Prof. Mancuso's talk Il tema dell’Internet of Everything ha per Cisco una portata storica paragonabile alla profonda e irreversibile trasformazione che avvenne con la rivoluzione industriale. Sta già accadendo qualcosa di straordinario: a mano a mano che persone, nuovi processi, dati e cose potranno tra loro connettersi e interagire grazie alla rete, l’impatto sarà sempre più visibile e sempre più aziende potranno cogliere i benefici.

The New Yorker on plant intelligence

"The Intelligent Plant" written by Michael Pollan explores plant neurobiology. The new way of understanding plants. Read about the LINV and the work we are doing in the full paper on the New Yorkers "The Intelligent Plant" or download the PDF

"VERDE BRILLANTE, sensibilità e intelligenza del mondo vegetale" the book of Prof. Mancuso

Are plants intelligent life being? Starting from this simple question Stefano Mancuso and Alessandra Viola lead the reader in an unusual and fascinating journey around the plant world. The authors clarify the ancient origin of certain stereotypes and reveal the hidden powers of plants. If you define intelligence as the capacity to solve problems, plants have a lot to teach us. Not only are they 'smart' in how they grow, adapt and thrive, they do it without neuroses. Verde brillante has been published by GIUNTI (only in Italian at the moment) the 20 March 2013. Prof. Mancuso will present the book Friday 19 April, at 16.00 at Villa Bardini (Costa San Giorgio 2, Firenze) hosted by the Italian Society of Horticulture.

2013 Plant Symposium of the SEB in Florence

Oxidative stress and cell death in plants: mechanisms and implications 26th - 28th June 2013 Florence, Italy The 2013 plant symposium will be entitled "Oxidative stress and cell death in plants: mechanisms and implications" and will take place from the 26th - 28th June 2013 at the Convitto della Calza, Florence, Italy. Research on oxidative stress and cell death in plants spans a wide range of disciplines, including stress physiology and biochemistry, cell and developmental biology, plant-pathogen interaction, systems biology and computational biology. The conference will assemble over 150 scientists and will consist of 4 sessions full of pioneering advances in major topics related to oxidative stress and cell death in plants. The conference will also devote particular emphasis to the contribution of a variety of model organisms and systems to our understanding of these important processes in plant biology.

The Annual Meeting of the Society of Plant Signaling and Behavior

July 8th – 10th, 2013 The University of British Columbia Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada The Annual Meeting of the Society of Plant Signaling and Behavior 2013 will be the first time that the society has met in North America. This is an exciting opportunity for North American and world researchers to gather and discuss the latest advancements, the newest ideas and the potential for creative future research to understand the ways that plants sense, interact, communicate, learn, develop, survive and grow in an ever-changing world. Invited speakers, contributed papers, oral and poster sessions will explore a range of topics in plant biology including: • Historical Perspectives and Plant Biology Since Darwin • Plant Signaling Molecules, Receptors, and Pathways • Mechanisms of Plant Communication • Electrophysiology and Long Distance Signals • Responses to Biotic and Abiotic Environmental Conditions • Animal-like Behaviors of Plants • Consequences of Plant Misbehavior • Sensory Biology, Chemistry and Ecology

Phonobiologic wine has been selected as one of the 100 technologies of the Green Economy

This selection is being made from a survey of more than 3.00 cases divided between social, environmental, communication, technology and finance. The initiative is of the Euro Brazilian Sustainable Development Council - EUBRA and UN Habitat. The cases to be published are being selected by the Advisory Board of Bright Green Cities together with entities connected with clean technologies, sustainable development and through the Internet. The publication will be produced in traditional format and distributed to book stores and educational institutions around the world. The digital version will be available online for free download on partners sites of the event. Bright Green Cities Phonobiologic Wines
