Invitation: Workshop on plant-microbe interaction

Registration for the DBG-funded 5th Eduard Strasburger Workshop for early-career scientists opened today (and closes on 21 December 2019). The topic is “Diversity of chemical and molecular signaling networks in plant-microbe interactions” and the target group are PhD students and postdocs. When and where? 3rd to 5th February 2020 in Königswinter near Bonn, Germany. We have 26 places available and every participant will be giving a talk. Accommodation and meals during the meeting are covered by DBG's Eduard Strasburger Workshop funds. Abstract selection will happen shortly after the registration closes.

5th Eduard Strasburger Workshop

Diversity of chemical and molecular signaling networks in plant-microbe interactions

3rd - 5th February 2020

Aim

The aim of the workshop is to connect diverse topics in the field of plant–microbe interaction. This will support the exchange of information, further the understanding of interactions, and enable collaboration between researchers with different approaches, such as genetics, chemistry, diversity and evolution, to explore the complexities that underpin plant microbe interaction. At the workshop we will further discuss how outreach can be improved and visibility can be increased in the public. The workshop covers the three following topics:

  • Microbial diversity in the context of plant-microbe interaction
  • Chemical and molecular biology of plant-microbe interaction
  • Evolution of plant-microbe interaction.
  • Number of participants: 26

Location

Bildungs- und Tagungshaus am Rhein, Arbeitnehmer-Zentrum Königswinter (AZK), Johannes-Albers-Allee 3, D-53639 Königswinter

DBG · Promoting young researchers

Excusively from young scientists for young scientists

On application the DBG supports the meetings of young scientists and researchers to further their scientific exchange of expertise. The society especially fosters the building of interdisciplinary and trans-sectional networks among emerging scientists.

The DBG invites applications from young scientists to be funded for the organization of the Eduard Strasburger-Workshop for young scientists. A small group of graduates can apply for the funding under the auspices of a senior scientist from a scientific institution. The workshop is supposed to last about two days (including a networking evening) and shall address 25 to 40 participants. The DBG offers to support such an event with up to 5.000 Euros. 

If you want to conduct a Eduard Strasburger-Workshop please contact the president and submit the necessary application form.
