Rearrangement of Kiel meeting

Dear participants of the UV4Plants meeting!

Gareth Jenkins has written a letter to you all.

For us as organizers it is at the moment the easiest way to simply postpone the meeting in the same order and program as planned for next week to the week from the 11th to 16th of October. Also your contributions will stay the same, unless you want to change them.

A new and additional information: As a deadline for changes of the abstracts, cancellations or new participations we are setting the deadline of the 30th of August.

Stay healthy! We hope to welcome you all in Kiel in October,

Frauke Pescheck and Wolfgang Bilger
