GUST 1998

Organizing Committee: M. Bar=DBn (Granada, Spain), H. R. Bolh=B7r-Nor=
denkampf
(Vienna, Austria), M.         Droppa (Budapest, Hungary), G. Horv=
=B7th
(Budapest, Hungary). Treasurer: Z. Szigeti (Budapest,              Hu=
ngary).

Scope of the meeting: The workshop will assemble scientists intereste=
d in
stress induced alterations of         metabolic processes related dir=
ectly
or indirectly to photosynthesis in plants and autotrophic
microorganisms. It will provide an excellent opportunity to exchange =
ideas
and to discuss results in         more details concerning responses o=
f
photosynthesis and plant productivity to various stress factors.
Besides of single stress effects, the action of combined stress is pl=
anned
to be a main issue.

Main topics of the meeting
        - Alteration of physiological processes related to photosynth=
esis by
various stress factors (e.g. heavy           metal, ozone, extreme
temperature, pathogen infection, drought, light etc.)
        - Stress synergisms affecting photosynthesis and plant produc=
tivity
                - responses at molecular and cellular levels
                - responses at organ and whole plant levels
                - responses at ecosystem level
                - modeling of stress responses
                - technics to detect stress in plants

Practical informations:
Location: Tata is situated in the midwest of Hungary about 60 kms fro=

le
occupancy.
Application: The overall number of participants is limited to 80.
        Selection is made based on scientific activity of candidates =
on
topics of the workshop.
