Plant Genome Evolution 2013

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Abstract Submission Deadline: 20th May 2013 / Poster Submission Deadline: 30th June 2013

It is our pleasure to announce the second Current Opinion Conference on Plant Genome Evolution, to be held in Amsterdam, September 8-10th, 2013. We are delighted to be holding this (now biannual) event again after a very successful first meeting in 2011 where renowned plant researchers gave inspiring talks and where many discussed their latest research in the field. 

For the 2013 meeting, which will be at least half a day longer, we are even more ambitious and are trying to put together an even more exciting program focused on plant genomes, natural variation, and systems biology, of course all with a strong emphasis on evolution and evolutionary aspects.

This meeting will be the unique opportunity to meet and discuss with colleagues, get updated on the newest developments and insights in plant genome evolution, and will provide unique possibilities to network and discuss collaborations. Also, we are delighted already that Prof. Doug Soltis (University of Florida, USA) has agreed to deliver the plenary lecture on Sunday, opening the meeting.
