Université Laval is proud to be the host of the next international meeting on "Plant and Microbe Adaptations to Cold". The meeting will be held at the Palace Royal Hotel in beautiful Quebec City, the cradle of French civilization in North America. The Quebec City meeting will be the fourth edition of this international gathering (1993, Sweden; 1997, Japan; 2000, Iceland; 2003, Canada). The objective of this meeting is to gather scientists working on the winter survival of agricultural and forest plants, as well as scientists studying the functioning of microbes at low temperatures. Emphasis will be put on low temperature adaptation as a component of general stress response of plants. The workshop will also address the impact of climate change on plant and microbe adaptations to cold.
Plants are exposed to both biotic and abiotic stresses during overwintering in their natural environments. The PMAC2003 meeting will address a number of outstanding issues such as: What are the key traits that confer superior cold tolerance to plants? What are the commonalities and differences between adaptative traits found in agricultural, horticultural and forest species? Is there a synergy or an antagonism between adaptations to cold and low temperature pathogens tolerance? Will predicted climate changes affect the capacities of plants to cope with both biotic and abiotic stresses at low temperature? Will new adaptive traits be required for stress tolerance under a changing winter climate?
Current research issues on each topic will be presented by key speakers. Attendees are invited to participate in a poster session.
Registration will begin on Sunday, May 25, from 14h00 to 17h00 at the Palace Royal Hotel, followed by a welcoming reception. The oral presentations and posters will be presented on Monday, May 26, Tuesday, May 27, and Thursday, May 29. A field trip and tour will take place on Wednesday, May 28.
The deadline for submitting abstracts and registration forms is February 15, 2003.
It will be possible to register after February 15, 2003, but registration fees will be higher.
