   The European Network of Palm Scientists is an informal association of biologists from a wide range of scientific disciplines carrying out research on palms (Arecaceae or Palmae).

   The network, which was established in 2001, exists to facilitate exchange of information on palm research and to promote integrative approaches and collaboration.

  EUNOPS meetings have been held annually since the network's inception, providing a regular forum for face-to-face discussions and research presentations. Annual meetings take place at a different venue each year. A strong emphasis is placed on student and postdoctoral research, with wide-ranging and lively scientific debate.

  EUNOPS meetings are founded on the principle of registration being free of charge, so as to encourage attendance by all interested parties and to simplify organisation.

  EUNOPS 2019  is generously supported by the sponsors shown below.

Thanks to Christine Bacon for the EUNOPS 2018 web site we used as a model.


The EUNOPS 2019 meeting will be held at Orsay, Université Paris-Sud, located about 20km south of Paris and easily accessible by the regional train line (RER B; station "Bures sur Yvette" - see Map of the University).

A simple free lunch buffet will be provided.

We recommend that participants book accommodation in Paris (central or South) since the conference dinner on Saturday evening will be held near the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle and there is little convenient accommodation in the Orsay area.


Information about how to travel within Paris (Bus, Metro, etc) and to Orsay can be found here.

Information about river boat trips on the Seine


Apart from a wide range of hotel accommodation, there are many hostels in Paris (e.g. "Ecological Hostel")

You can find plenty more suggestions using the following links:-

The programme will include a visit to the recently renovated National Herbarium at the Paris Natural History Museum and/or to the renovated greenhouses 

On Saturday evening, we will organise a meal at a restaurant in Paris with traditional French cuisine (and wine!) which anyone interested will be welcome to attend. Food and drink to be paid for personally by each participant.
