ISPR will sponsor several meetings in 2018 between the Congresses in 2016 and 2020. One of these between Congress meetings will be coordinated with Plant Biology 18, the ASPB annual meeting being held jointly with the Canadian Society of Plant Biologists. The ISPR meeting will overlap with Plant Biology 18 July 17 and 18 (Tuesday and Wednesday) and continue through noon on July 20 (Friday).
You can have the advantages of a large, international meeting (Plant Biology 18) and a small intimate meeting (along the lines of a Gordon Conference) within one week in beautiful Montreal. This meeting is for the Americas region of ISPR but all are welcome, so if you are coming for Plant Biology 18 consider also signing up for the ISPR meeting.
