Plant dormancy, with all its complexities, is gradually being teased apart by recent advances in the molecular, physiological and morphological aspects of its biology. This symposium, the sixth in a series - following those in Oregon, USA, 1995; France, 1999; The Netherlands, 2004; Fargo, USA, 2009 and Auckland, New Zealand, 2013 - is an excellent opportunity to bring together international experts and emerging scientists with an interest in this exciting field of plant biology. The overall goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas on dormancy in plants and the development of new scientific collaborations. it will encompass the latest findings in the mechanisms of plant dormancy in vegetative buds, seeds and other meristems from a variety of experimental plant systems ranging from agronomic, horticultural and tree crops to model plants.
The host city, Kyoto, is the ancient capital of Japan and is recognized worldwide as the country’s historical, cultural and spiritual heart. The city offers you numerous cultural and unique experiences with its countless shrines, temples, and architectural masterpieces including 17 UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites. End of October is one of the best season to visit Kyoto. You can enjoy the streets and local sightseeing spots before and after attending the conference.
We look forward to welcoming you in Kyoto, October 2018!
