New Phytologist Symposia
If you are interested in organising a New Phytologist Symposium, please complete the proposal pro forma and email this to the Managing Editor (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the end of February. Feel free to get in touch with any queries or for guidance on completing the proposal.
The internationally renowned series of New Phytologist Symposia (NPS) aim to support emerging and key areas of research. Usually these meetings would be expected to extend over one to three days, with invited speakers and a maximum of 120 delegates. In this way we hope to provide an informal atmosphere for the stimulation and exchange of ideas and the building of collaborations. We particularly encourage the involvement of early career scientists and as such a number of travel grants will be awarded in association with each meeting.

New Phytologist Workshops aim to facilitate advances in plant science by bringing together a small number of scientists (up to 20) who wish to focus and brainstorm a particular topic or issue. The format is intentionally flexible to suit a range of projects, but this might, for example, include a working group that intends to focus on analysing new data or indeed analysing old data in the light of new techniques and planning the way forward. Awards are usually in the region of £5–10k.
We welcome workshop proposals throughout the year and we can support workshops scheduled from 2016 onwards. To submit a proposal for a workshop download and complete the proposal pro forma and email this to the Managing Editor (email@example.com).
