What is the Plant Cell Dynamics Meeting?
Since 2012, we have organized an annual "plant cell dynamics" meeting with the objective of bringing together plant cell biologists from around the world in a highly interactive forum for presenting the latest advances in plant cell biology and for learning new tools and approaches.

The 2019 program includes:
  • Keynote talks
  • Tetsuya Higashiyama, Nagoya University
  • Beronda Montgomery, Michigan State University
  • Carol Rasmussen, UC-Riverside
  • Oral presentations from the members of the attending labs with an emphasis towards beginning faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students
  • Extensive poster sessions
  • Practical Workshops - "Image analysis using time series image data" and "Reproducibility for everyone".
  • Plenty of time for informal discussions
  • Check out this year's current schedule or last year's detailed program to see what the meeting will be like
  • One poster figure gets voted on to be next year's conference T-shirt design.
  • t-shirt
    The 2018 T-shirt image was from Kaija Goodman (UW-Madison) and 2019 will be from Giulia Galotto (Worcester Polytechnic Institute). Yours could be the 2020 image!
A favorite is always the amazing food (and drinks) at every poster social, plus the end of meeting party

If you haven't attended a meeting where the talks that run over time get faded out to the tune of "Let it Go" from Disney's Frozen...Or David Coverdale singing "Here I go Again" then you need to talk to one of the meeting participants!
