PMA06 is the second International Symposium in the series Plant Growth Modeling, Simulation, Visualization and Applications that began with PMA03, Beijing, China, in 2003.

        PMA06 is addressed to Plant Biologists, Mathematicians and Computer Scientists with an interest in Plant Growth Modeling, Simulation, Visualization and their Applications in Plant and Crops Sciences, Forestry, Agriculture, Environmental Sciences, Ecology and Virtual Reality. This international event provides an excellent opportunity to foster scientific and technical exchanges in a multi-disciplinary subject area, and will also allow the building of bridges between different scientific communities. Integration of fundamental knowledge on Plant Structure and Function in Mathematical Models and Computer Tools will be an important issue of this Symposium. Presentation of applications at different spatial and temporal scales is also highly encouraged.

        PMA06 is organized by Chinese and French Institutions and is open to international scientists and students interested in Plant Growth Modeling, Simulation, Visualization and Applications. The event is supported by an International Scientific Committee. PMA06 will take place in Beijing, China, November 13-17, 2006. The symposium will include oral presentations, poster sessions, software demonstrations and tutorials.
