Dear all,

We would like to inform you that the 7th SPPS PhD Student Conference
(http://www.phd-spps.com/) will take place already in this autumn, from
the 12th to the 15th of September 2012. For the first time the conference
will be held in Estonia, in Laulasmaa.

SPPS is Scandinavian Plant Physiology Society
(http://www.spps.fi/cgi-bin/SPPS.pl), established in 1947 and has an
international journal - Physiologia Plantarum. SPPS PhD student
conferences are organized biannually by PhD students. These international
conferences are directed to PhD students and aim to create a social
network of young plant scientists all over the world. The conference
offers PhD students the opportunity to interact with and learn from
experienced plant scientists who attend the meeting as invited speakers.

PhD students will have the opportunity to present their work in either
oral or poster presentations and gain new knowledge from broad topics in
plant biology, ranging from molecular interactions to large-scale
plant-environment interactions. As the conference is organized by PhD
students and most of the attendants are also PhD students, this is a
special event charged with youthful energy and enthusiasm.
