    International Symposium on Plant Photobiology


Five Days of Inspiration!

- JUNE 2019, Barcelona

We warmly invite you to be part of the International Symposium on Plant Photobiology (ISPP), which will be held in the lively city of Barcelona, Spain, this coming spring (Monday 3th to Saturday 8th June 2019).

Light is a key resource for plants as it fuels photosynthesis. Thus, light availability is of great importance to plants throughout their life cycle. To gain information about the light environment, plants possess light receptors that cover the perception of the complete light spectrum, including light invisible for the human eye (far-red and ultra-violet light). The information sensed by these light receptors is utilized to optimally grow during day-night cycles, and in sub-optimal light conditions, such as shaded areas and high-light sun flecks. Plant photobiology research focuses on the perception of light by plants, the developmental adaptations that a changing light environment causes and the mechanistic and genetic basis of these adaptations. The ISPP is a biannual meeting where the world’s leaders as well as upcoming talents in the field gather to share their latest results and discuss future directions.

The organizing committee, formed by four CRAG researchers, are preparing an attractive programme for researchers at different stages in their career, with international highly-valued speakers as well as young talents. Participants are encouraged to submit abstracts, from which talks and flash-talks will be selected. The meeting will cover many aspects of plant photobiology, including photoreceptor function, signal transduction and integration mechanisms, circadian clock and System Biology. We also prepare poster sessions that will be fun to attend and aim to promote lively scientific discussion between all participants.

The workshop will be held within the Parc de Recerca Biomèdica de Barcelona (PRBB) building, a beautiful modern building that holds a research institute, very close to the Olympic harbor and by the beach. About 150-200 participants are expected to attend this event.

See you this spring in Barcelona - don’t forget to bring your swimsuit!
