18th International Workshop on Plant Membrane Biology

July 7 to 12, 2019, Glasgow, Scotland.

Early registration and abstract submission for poster+oral presentations: 15 April 2019

Regular registration and poster submission: 20 May 2019

The Plant Membrane Biology Workshops started in the early 1970s with a primary focus on transmembrane ion transport in plants, soon becoming the premier international research conference in the field. Over the past three decades these meetings have grown to encompass all aspects of plant membrane biology, from protein structure and membrane traffic to salinity and ecophysiological aspects of membrane function in plants. IWPMB2019 will provide a unique opportunity for scientific discussion and exchange of ideas among researchers at all stages in their careers, and an excellent platform for postgraduate students entering the field of plant membrane biology.

For full details, please see website.


14th International Conference on Tetrapyrrole Photoreceptors in Photosynthetic Organisms

July 21 to 24, 2019, Sydney, Australia.

ICTPPO-2019 will be of interest to biochemists, biophysicists, spectroscopists, microbiologists, plant biologists and organic chemists who study tetrapyrroles and their diverse roles in photosynthesis, respiration, catalysis, and development in photosynthetic organisms. The conference will provide a unique opportunity to showcase your latest research, discoveries and new techniques and developments on tetrapyrrole photoreceptors in photosynthetic organisms. Nine sessions will cover the structure and functions of tetrapyrrole-based systems in photosynthetic organisms (from prokaryotes to eukaryotes). We hope to create a platform for all of you to exchange research updates, discuss the challenges, promote collaborations, and also the opportunities for early- and middle-career researchers to build their connections and networks.

Early bird registration extended till 18th April

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.
