The first European Congress on Photosynthesis Research ePS-1 2018

June 25-28, 2018, Uppsala Sweden

This conference series is intended to run every four years, two years after the International Congress on Photosynthesis Research. ePS-1 covered all aspects of photosynthesis, from genetics and molecular mechanisms, to crop yields, artificial photosynthesis and solar fuels. In addition, the ePS-Young meeting for PhD students and postdocs was run the weekend before the main meeting.

ISPR Conference on Microbial Photosynthesis

August 9-12, 2018, Vancouver, Canada

This was a 3-day ISPR-sponsored conference focusing on single-celled phototrophs and photosynthetic mechanisms. Topics included mechanisms and regulation of fundamental processes (e.g. light harvesting, photosynthetic electron transport, carbon fixation), ecology and ecophysiology of phototrophic organisms in marine and extreme environments, evolution of photosynthetic mechanisms and (endo)symbiotic relationships, as well as new discoveries of organisms and processes. The symposium followed immediately after the ISPP (International Symposium on Phototrophic Prokaryotes), allowing attendees of that conference to stay for a few more days to discuss photosynthetic processes in their favourite organisms, but also encompassed microbial eukaryotic phototrophs.

The First Asia-Oceania International Congress on Photosynthesis

August 19-23, 2018 Beijing, China

This was the first conference in a series intended to run every four years, two years after the International Congress on Photosynthesis Research. All aspects of photosynthesis are covered.

13th Workshop on Cyanobacteria

June 6-9, 2019, University of Colorado-Boulder, Boulder, CO, USA

The upcoming 13th Workshop on Cyanobacteria will take place from June 6-9, 2019 on the University of Colorado-Boulder campus. The workshop is held every three years in North America, and includes all research involving cyanobacteria. Participation costs have been kept to a minimum, with registration fees for students and postdocs in the $350-450 range, and $475-575 range for faculty, depending on the choice of accommodation. Registration fees include all meals during the meeting, as well as on-campus lodging in the student dorms. Tentative sessions are: Biotechnology; Molecular Physiology; Interactions and Environment; Nitrogen Fixation; Photosynthesis and CO2; Physiology and Metabolism; plus poster sessions corresponding to each topic. Keynote speakers include Don Bryant (Penn State), Carl Johnson (Vanderbilt), Chen Yang (Chinese Academy of Sciences), and Paul Hudson (KTH Royal Institute of Technology). In keeping with the tradition of past Cyanobacterial Workshops, there will be an emphasis on student and postdoctoral presentations. Please check the 13th Cyanobacterial Workshop Website for the most up-to-date information: https://www.colorado.edu/rasei/conferences/13th-workshop-cyanobacteria
