Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the meeting: "6th International Symposium on 
Plant Dormancy" that will be held in Kyoto, Japan, on 23-26th October, 2018.

This symposium is an excellent opportunity to bring together scientists 
working on various aspects of seed, bud and other meristematic dormancy, 
and will focus on recent advances on the regulatory mechanisms, its role 
in plant growth and development, weed management and crop production, as 
well as impact of seasonal environmental change and climate change on 
dormancy. The overall goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for 
the exchange of information and ideas on dormancy in plants and the 
development of new scientific collaborations. It will encompass the 
latest findings in dormancy from a variety of plant systems ranging from 
model plants to wild, agronomic and tree crops.

Important Dates:

Early bird registration and oral abstract submission deadline: 31 July

Late registration deadline: 15 August

Covered Topics include:

Genetic and Epigenetic regulation

Ecology (including climate change)


Hormonal regulation

Environmental control and Signaling (inter- and intra-cellular)

Applied aspects of dormancy

We hope you will take this opportunity to visit the shrines and temples 
of Kyoto both before and after the symposium. The end of October, 
meanwhile, is a wonderful time to see the foliage turn a magnificent 
crimson color.
