You are cordially invited to participate the 1st Network Conference of The International Association for Plant UV-Research (UV4Plants), to be held in Pécs (Hungary), on the 30th – 31st of May 2016. The conference hopes to bring together researchers from universities, research institutes and companies with the aim of promoting and fostering a culture of research-excellence and good practice in plant UV research. Oral communications and poster presentations are equally welcome. Please let your colleagues know about the conference, especially early stage researchers. Please find enclosed the first circular which will be followed by more details soon. We look forward to meeting you at Pécs, at the network conference:
The PDF of the first circular related to the conference is available as a PDF file for download.
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.
I chose the cover photo to symbolize the way ahead and a bright future for UV4Plants with UV radiation always present.
A photobiology school that will be organized by ESP can be of interest to UV4Plants members.
