Dear Friends and colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 8th Asian-Oceanian Symposium on Plant Lipids (ASPL2019), to be held on 19-22 November 2019, in Canberra, the bush capital of Australia. Your participation is important to make this meeting successful and fruitful.

 ASPL 2019 - Canberra

In addition to the traditional sessions of past ASPLs, the Organizing Committee will bring in new sessions including lipids for food and nutrition, genome-editing and synthetic biology, vegetable oil and biofuel processing. ASPL2019 will offer some support to a certain number of students for registration and accommodation.

Canberra, nestled within a beautiful Australian bush environment, was chosen "the best place to live in the world" by a survey of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development in 2014. It is a well-planned city, close to the famous beaches of the southern NSW coast, mountains with winter snowfields, award-winning wineries, wild life and a large multicultural diversity within the city itself. November springtime in Canberra is mild, with an average temperature close to 20°C. Enjoy our bush capital together with plenty of kangaroos and other unique wildlife.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you at Canberra!

Best regards,

Surinder Singh and Xue-Rong Zhou
