Organisation of UV4Plants 2020 Network Meeting

UV4Plants  invites  expressions  of  interest  from  the  membership  to  host  the  2020 Network  Meeting,  which  is  the  main  biennial  conference  of  our  association.

The  2020  Network  Meeting  will  have  essentially  the  same  structure  as  the  last one,  which  was  in  Bled  in  2018.  The  meeting  will  be  held  over  3  days  to  give ample  time  for  informal  discussion  as  well  as  a  full  programme  of  lectures  and poster  sessions  and  possibly  an  excursion.  In  addition,  a  Training  School  for early  stage  researchers  will  be  held  immediately  before  the  conference  at  the same  venue.

Those  interested  in  hosting  the  Network  Meeting  should  send  expressions  of interest  to  secretary@uv4plants.org  by  8  March  2019,  including  the  names  of the  proposed  organisers,  possible  venues,  accessibility  (travel  options),  a provisional  indication  of  costs  for  the  venue  and  for  attendees,  and  any  other information  that  will  help  the  UV4Plants  Managing  Committee  to  select  the venue.  With  regard  to  the  financial  management,  UV4Plants  will  give  advice  and help  to  the  local  organisers  and  would  prefer  to  manage  the  income  and expenditure  through  its  accounts;  it  is  expected  that  the  host  institution  will  not gain  financially  from  hosting  the  meeting.  There  is  no  need  to  give  details  of  the proposed  programme  as  this  will  be  discussed  in  detail  with  the  organisers.
