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

About us

Activities

The Section promotes Mycology including Lichenology in all aspects. It organizes a workshop every other year in alternation with the conferences of the Botanikertagung of the DBG.

New Name of the Section

On the member assembly on October 1st 2013 during the Botanikertagung at Tübingen, Germany, the Section decided to change its name into „Section for interactions (former Section of mycology and lichenology)”. Members also agreed to keep this name for two years from now on.

Meetings

Archives of former meetings

Former-Interaction-MeetingsMembership

Members receive direct information about the activities of the Section during the Botanikertagung mainly concerning symposia and workshops.

At the moment membership in the section is free of fees.

How to become a member?

Prerequisite for a membership in the Section is a membership in the German Botanical Society (DBG). To become a member, please write an informal letter to the speaker of the Section.

Statutes

The Section has its onw statutes besides the statutes of the DBG. Sorry, at present we have no English version of our statutes. Please refer to the German version of the statutes (pdf file).
