  • Meeting format

    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

    Researchers from seasoned PIs to undergraduates can present their latest advances and learn new tools and approaches

    Although for 2023 we're back in the midwest in Madison WI, the meeting is open to all irrespective of where you are located. A welcoming community, a meeting as cheap as can be, a focus on promoting the next generation of researchers and all that coupled with simply blow-your-mind plant science - who could ask for more.

  • The program
    • Keynote talks

    • 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

    • Plenty of time for informal discussions

    • Plus, if you haven't experienced a talk that is running over time getting faded out to the tune of "Let it Go*" from Disney's Frozen, then here is your chance.

      *the precise song each year is a closely guarded secret, just rest assured, no one EVER runs over ;-)
  • Featuring
    • This is not your regular conference! We are looking forward and strive to highlight the work of junior faculty, postdocs, graduate students and undergraduate researchers. We also celebrate that science is fun. One poster figure gets voted to be next year's conference T-shirt design. The winner for the 2023 meeting t-shirt design is Natasha Bilkey from the Dixit lab

    • The presentations, discussion and networking are always a favorite but so is the amazing food (and drinks) at every poster social. The end of meeting party has also proven the place where discussions during the meeting are cemented into collaborations and future postdoc and graduate opportunities
