after a long period with hope and discussions we want to inform you that the 3rd UV4Plants Meeting will take place in a virtual form.

We are excited to adapt the conference to the new format. We hope that you will help us with your participation to make the first virtual UV4Plants Meeting a vital and exciting conference!

We are opening the meeting again for new participants. New registrations can be done by email to meeting2020@uv4plants.org. Deadline for submission of new or additional poster presentations will be September 15th. Registration fees are 40 Euros and for students 20 Euros. Refund of the difference to the former fees will be organised soon. For new registrations, please, transfer the conference fee to the bank account given on the Conference Web Page.

The dates for the meeting will be from October 13th to October 16th. Corresponding to the different time zones, we are envisaging a core time from 12:00 to 18:00 Central European Summer Time for the oral / poster presentations.

With best wishes,
Frauke Pescheck and Wolfgang Bilger
