Plasmodesmata 2010

21-26 March 2010 in Sydney, Australia

The first conference on plant plasmodesmata was held in Canberra in 1975, at the beginning of a new era of research investigating plasmodesmata structure and function.  After 35 years, the 7th conference in the series returns to Australia.  The range of topics has expanded to include ultrastructure, molecular and cell biology, proteomics and signalling, plant disease resistance, regulation of development and crop productivity.  The Sydney conference will bring together the international experts on plasmodesmata, the gatekeepers of cell-to-cell communication in plants, to share latest findings and forge new collaborations.  The conference will be held at the Q-Station Retreat and Conference Centre, 30 minutes from the Central Business District in Sydney, Australia.  With stunning views over Sydney Harbor, this ideal venue is an historic site that is versatile, elegant, and flooded with natural light.  Conference activities, meals, and accommodation will be onsite.
