The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session covering the latest findings across many topics in plant cell 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.


Major Topics:
1. Organelle dynamics in plant development
2. Cell cycle regulation and plant development
3. Anisotropic cell expansion and cell morphogenesis
4. Stem cells and cell fate determination
5. Intracellular and intercellular signaling in plant development
6. Sexual plant reproduction - gametogenesis

We encourage abstracts to contain new and unpublished materials. The abstracts must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers. Status (fellow's talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers. 


Fellowship: 
We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. A certain number of presentations by graduate students and postdocs in this conference will be selected as fellowship (USD $100-$500) awards.

We look forward to seeing you at Suzhou in May, 2017.
