UV4Plants workshop “UV-B and Climate Change”, Cork 2019

Spread the love

Subject: UV-B and Climate Change; impacts on plants and vegetation.
Location: University College Cork, Ireland
Dates: April 15-16, 2019

Organizer: Marcel A. K. Jansen

Format: A small, discussion-intensive workshop that will focus on the interactive effects of UV-B and climate change on plants.

Workshop programme:
The objective of the workshop is to bring together plant-scientists with an interest in the interactive effects of UV-B and climate change parameters on gene-expression, molecular signalling, anti-oxidant-defences, physiology, growth, fitness and ecology of plants. Of special interest are talks on the combined effects of UV-B and environmental variables, such as drought, extreme temperatures, or photoinhibitory light and on the potential role of UV-B radiation in climate change adaptation.

The workshop fee is €125.- for UV4Plants members (€145.- for non-members) for those registering on or before February 15, 2019. The fee covers the book of abstracts, three coffee/tea breaks, two lunches and a social dinner on Monday evening. We encourage all attendants to submit an abstract and to present a talk. There will be no poster presentations. Registration will be on a first-come first-served basis, and those presenting a talk will receive preference.

Registration and Abstract forms are linked below. Applicants are requested to send both forms to Prof Marcel Jansen at m.jansen@ucc.ie not later than February 15, 2019. Following registration, participants will receive an invoice with instructions on how to pay registration fees by bank-transfer. Cash payment is possible in exceptional circumstances and when agreed with Prof Jansen.

UV4Plants has made available two travel bursaries to the value of €250.- each. Those wishing to apply for the bursaries must be UV4Plants members, and are requested to send their abstract to secretary@uv4plants.org. Two abstracts will be selected for funding based on the scientific quality of the submitted abstract, and this process may favourably consider researchers in the early stages of their career. Bursaries will be paid after the meeting, and will not be in excess of the actual travel expenses made by the delegate.
