10th Jubilee Plant Sulfur Workshop:
"Sulfur Nutrition and Assimilation in Higher Plants: Fundamental, Environmental and Agricultural Aspects"
Hotel Der Achtermann, Goslar, Germany, September 1-4, 2015 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The 10th Jubilee Plant Sulfur Workshop will be held in Hotel Der Achtermann, Goslar, Germany, September 1-4, 2015 and is hosted by Silvia Haneklaus & Ewald Schnug (JKI, Braunschweig), Malcolm J. Hawkesford (Rothamsted Research, Harpenden) and Luit J. De Kok (University of Groningen). It will be a special workshop and a selection of speakers, who have significantly contributed to Plant Sulfur Research during the last 25 years, have been invited to summarizing the outcomes of the previous Plant Sulfur Workshops and highlighting the still existing gaps, and prospects for future research on the topic. All other participants are invited to present a poster. It is intended to publish all presentations in the Springer Series Proceedings of the International Plant Sulfur Workshop, Vol. 3, 2016.
Registration: The registration fee is €300,- (incl. get-together-party, lunches, morning and afternoon coffee/teas & conference diner) and the fee for the scientific excursion is €50,-.
