This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Salt and Water Stress in Plants is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
Research on salt and water stress in plants is an increasingly important topic of study considering the effects global climate change has on our growing world population. This GRS will be a great opportunity for young researchers to gain insights in recent scientific advances leading to novel salt and water stress tolerance mechanisms. This GRS will have four sessions:
- Exploring plant diversity in stress-prone environments
- The genomic basis of abiotic stress
- From roots to shoots: plant responses to salt and water stress from cellular to whole-plant level
- Science with impact: moving from the lab to the field
