4th ESP Photobiology School

We have received from ESP the following announcement of interest to UV4Plants members. Dear Colleague, Registration is open for the 4th ESP Photobiology School, taking place in the beautiful Brixen/Bressanone in South Tyrol, Italy, from 20 to 25 June 2016. The updated programme and registration and logistic information are available at the page www.photobiology.eu/photobiology_school. The purpose of the school is to provide an introductory overview of all main aspects of photobiology, presented by experts in each area. The course is designed for PhD and Master students, as well as for scientists interested in an overview of the photobiological sciences. The School is strongly supported by ESP and this is reflected in the low registration fee. In addition, low cost accommodation will be provided. After completion of the course an attendance certificate will be provided to all the students. An optional short final test will be offered at the end of the course and an exam certificate will be provided after evaluation of the exam results. Passing the exam will entitle students to apply for the ESP supplement to the PhD degree. Please circulate this information to your colleagues and students. Best regards Francesco Ghetti ESP Treasurer Share this

Site transfer to new host completed!

Our mailing lists should be now working. If you have not received a welcome message please send a message to mailto:info@uv4plants.org. The whole site has been transferred to a different server. (A webhotel from a different provider called webbinen.net.) This has also decreased the page load delays that the site has had rather frequently. As the domain names have been transferred no visible signs of the change except for possible improvement in performance are expected. If you experience slower page loads or find broken links or other problems in the site please report them to mailto:info@uv4plants.org. Share this

First issue of the UV4Plants Bulletin is out!

The first issue of our Bulletin is now ready. Because ISSNs are assigned only after publication of the first issue, the PDF will be updated with ISSN and DOIs as soon as they get assigned. Except for this the issue is in its final shape. The PDF will be deposited in a public repository and assigned an URI. PDFs for individual articles will be deposited as soon as DOIs are assigned to them. At the same time printed on-demand copies will become available for purchase (at cost for UV4Plants members). The PDF file is available through a page at this site. We hope you enjoy reading this issue, and that you will submit manuscripts for future issues. The process of graphical design, typesetting and administrative issues related to repositories and registration for ISSN and DOIs have been time consuming. Most of this work does not need to be repeated for future issues, and I expect  to keep to a schedule of two issues per year, in Spring and Autumn. I want to warmly thank all authors, the members of the editorial board and all those who contributed in diverse ways to the production of this issue for their hard work.…
