Barcelona, 26-29 SEPT 2018: 14th International Symposium on Ferroic Domains

The forthcoming International Symposium on Ferroic Domains (ISFD-14) is going to be held in Barcelona, at the “Casa de Convalescencia”, a UNESCO-listed modernist building a stone’s throw from the Sagrada Familia.

Hosted in this 14th edition by the ICN2, the International Symposium on Ferroic Domains (ISFD) has been held bi-annually since 1989, timed to fall between the International Meeting of Ferroelectricity and the European Meeting of Ferroelectricity. It serves both as a half-way stop between them and as a portent of what’s going to be hot in the next year’s highlight meeting of ferroelectricity.The research themes cover experimental and theoretical advances in our understanding of domains, domain walls, phase boundaries and other topological mobile structures. Scientific quality and originality are the sole criteria for selecting talks.

Madame Châtelet for the high school Infanta Isabel from Barcelona who visited ICMAB

On Friday, March 9 2018, one day after the International Women's Day, the students from 2n BTX of the high school Infanta Isabel in Barcelona visited our Institute.

A surprise awaited them: instead of having the usual seminar from one of our researchers, they had 12 researchers from the Institute waiting from them. But this 12 women did not give them a talk. Instead, they represented the play "Madame Châtelet and her Instagram followers".

PLANT HEALING: Biopolymer to heal plant wounds: a collaboration between ICMAB and CRAG

Dr. Anna Laromaine, from ICMAB-CSIC, and Dr. Núria Sánchez-Coll, from CRAG (Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics) have developed an effective method for plant tissue regeneration that involves the use of a bacterial cellulose-based biopolymer. It enhances the formation of new cell layers which boosts the healing processes.

Bacterial cellulose biopolymer
Wounds in plants can be caused by several agents like weather events (hail, wind…), predators (herbivores, insects) or humans (pruning, grafting), among others.
