Plant phenomics community
From the latest news on our blog, to our global calendar of unmissable plant science events and our network linkages, there are many ways to keep in touch, access resources or experts, and exchange ideas with others working in plant science and agriculture.
News | Events | Networking | Let’s Chat
Throughout our website, and particularly our Community page, the Australian Plant Phenomics Facility aims to bring together fellow plant scientists to enable connections, knowledge and idea sharing, provide pointers on tools and experts, and share links and networks that may be of use. Here we aim to:
- foster the development of a coordinated plant phenotyping community that makes best use of existing resources,
- develop/access new technologies and support platforms for data exchange and reusability,
- provide a platform to connect the expertise of diverse groups from platform operators, user groups, technology developers, and policy makers,
- engage and inform diverse stakeholders,
- promote and facilitate educational activities, e.g. phenomics workshops, conferences, student exchange, extension events, and
- leverage linkages with international plant phenomics networks.
News and events snapshot
Save the date! … 2-5 October 2018 … for the
5th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium
We are thrilled to announce the 5th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium, titled ‘From plant, to data, to impact’, will be held in Adelaide, South Australia from 2-5 October 2018.
Plans for IPPS 2018 are well underway! Sponsorship opportunities and Early Career Travel Grants are now open. We will post more details as they come to hand on the symposium website, in our News (make sure you have subscribed to the blog) and on Twitter (make sure you have followed us)!
We look forward to welcoming the international plant science community to South Australia, where you will get the full Australian experience all in one state. From cage diving to fine dining, there’s a wine barrel full of reasons why South Australia was named as one of Lonely Planet’s best regions to visit in 2017! Find out more about this vibrant city before you arrive here.
