CLSF (Center for Lignocellulose Structure and Formation) is a DOE Energy Frontiers Research Center focused on developing a detailed understanding of lignocellulose, the main structural material in plants, from cellulose synthesis and fibril formation to a mature plant cell wall, forming a foundation for significant advancement in sustainable energy and materials.
- Cellulose Symposium scheduled for May 16-18, 2013
The symposium "Cellulose synthesis, structure, matrix interactions and technology" will be held at the Unviersity Park campus of Pennsylvania State University from May 16-18 2013. In addition to 22 lectures from leaders in the fields of the structure of cellulose in primary and secondary cell walls, the mechanism of its synthesis and its interactions with matrix polymers, and new uses of cellulose for energy and material applications, we will have workshops and posters, from which four additional speakers will be selected. Register and submit a poster abstract before March 31 to be considered for one of the four open speaker slots or one of the ten travel awards.. This symposium is sponsored by the Center for Lignocellulose Structure and Formation, a DOE-funded Energy Frontiers Research Center headquartered at Penn State.
