Dear colleagues, The International Association of Plant UV Research has the pleasure to invite you to the 4th Network Meeting of the UV4Plants Association, from 4th to 6th July 2022 in Kraków, Poland. We hope that the difficult experience of COVID-19 Pandemics will be ceased so that our next meeting will be hosted in Kraków in vivo. Following the examples of former conferences, we will provide time and space for discussions and the exchange of scientific ideas with colleagues in a friendly atmosphere. As usual, the meeting will be preceded by a Training School held on 2nd and 3rd July 2022. Information about registration, the program, and deadlines will follow in a first circular later this year. Looking forward to seeing you in Kraków For the local organizing committee: Justyna Łabuz, Agnieszka Katarzyna Banaś, Wojciech Strzałka For UV4Plants Association: Prof. Gareth I. Jenkins, President
The UV4Plants Association is pleased to encourage Members to attend the virtual 19th Congress of the European Society for Photobiology, held from August 30 to September 3, 2021. In particular, we would like to encourage Early Stage Researchers to participate in the Congress. Thus we are offering Bursaries of 50 Euro to facilitate payment of the attendance fee, for the first 25 ESRs who will submit an abstract to the Congress by the 31st of May and pay the UV4Plants Membership fee by the 30th of June 2021. PhD students and ESRs (up to 7 years after obtaining their PhD degree) are eligible to apply for the bursary. Please send the copy of the email message received after the abstract submission to the Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org). The following sessions of The Congress are organized by members of the UV4Plants Association. Abstracts for oral or poster presentation are welcomed and should be submitted via the Congress website (https://salzburg2021.photobiology.eu). The Plant UV Photoreceptors symposium is chaired by Gareth Jenkins. The Interactions of UV and other environmental factors in regulating plant growth and development symposium is chaired by Éva Hideg and Marcel Jansen. The Responses of non-flowering plants to UV radiation symposium is chaired…
A great and unforgettable meeting is over! The conference was perfectly organized by Wolfgang Bilger and Frauke Pescheck with the technical support of Carina Lietz and Christiana Anagnostou from the University of Kiel, Germany. There were 125 participants from 30 countries. It was conducted using Zoom and the Mattermost platform, which provided space for formal and informal chats. The meeting consisted of 6 sessions and two discussion panels. The organizes have even provided a Musical Dinner, which served great music from Germany, Poland, and Ireland, instead of meals. It was a formidable get-together party. Out of posters and presentations prepared by ESR researchers, four of them: Zheng Zhou, Aneta Bazant, Laura Díaz-Guerra, and Alicia Perera-Castro were awarded 100 Euro bursary (to be used for a future UV4Plant event). The meeting was preceded by a successful Virtual Training School, with 25 participants.
Please find enclosed the 4th circular to the 3rd Network / 1st virtual Meeting of the UV4Plants Association
on October 13th ─ 16th 2020 with information about the “Mattermost” platform and poster submission.
With best wishes,
Frauke Pescheck and Wolfgang Bilger
