Registration is now closed. If you would like to join the waiting list please email us at and we will get in touch if a place becomes available for you.


The appeal of our successful series of New Phytologist Symposia is based on providing stimulating, engaging meetings with a relatively small number of delegates, allowing an informal atmosphere for exchanging ideas and building collaborations. For these reasons we place an upper limit on the number of participants and consequently closed registration for this symposium. We are sorry if you were unable to register in time but we hope to see you at future New Phytologist Symposia.
