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
UV4Plants wishes to encourage members to host short workshops on specialist topics, for example, a particular technical approach or aspect of UV-B research. These workshops will be valuable in spreading expertise and promoting collaborations. Workshops would likely attract 10 to 25 people and could be held at any time.
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
