Dear Arabidopsis community,

We are pleased to announce the Cold Spring Harbor Asia conference on Latest Advances in Plant Development & Environmental Responses which will be held in Awaji, Japan, close to Kobe. The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Tuesday November 29, and will conclude after dinner on Friday December 2, 2016.

The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session covering the latest findings across many topics in plant biology. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.

Conference Venue & Accommodation
Cold Spring Harbor Asia conferences in Japan are arranged in Awaji Yumebutai International Conference Center (http://www.westin-awaji.com/en/index.html), which is part of a one-of-a-kind “environment creation” project equipped with professional conference facilities and blended into the magnificent landscape, designed by the famous architect Tadao Ando.
