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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
