New Phytologist Symposia logo

Symposia

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-phase career scientists and as such a number of travel grants will be awarded in association with each meeting.

If you are interested in organising a New Phytologist Symposium in the future, please complete the proposal pro forma and email this to the Managing Editor by the end of February. Please note that proposals are considered approximately two years in advance of the event. You are also welcome to contact the Managing Editor with preliminary enquiries at any time of the year.
