We are delighted to welcome you to Nanjing, China to the 4th International Symposium on the Nitrogen Nutrition of Plants (ISNNP). This triennial symposium was agreed during the Third ISNNP held at Montpellier, France in 2016 and is the continuation of a long-standing tradition of international nitrogen meetings, initiated by both the ENAAG (European Nitrate and Ammonium Assimilation Group) and NAMGA (Nitrate Assimilation: Molecular and Genetic Aspects) organisations.
We feel greatly honored that the International Scientific Committee of ISNNP has chosen Nanjing as the venue for the 4th ISNNP. Nanjing, located in the Yangtze River delta, is an ancient capital of China, serving as the capital city for ten dynasties during its 2,500 years history. Nanjing not only has a prominent place in Chinese history and culture, but also is one of the major research centers and higher-education hubs in modern China with particular strength in soil science and plant nutrition.
The main objective of this triennial international nitrogen conference will be to review recent progress in the understanding of molecular physiological and developmental processes involved in the nitrogen nutrition of plants and emerging of breeding high nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) crops. Nitrogen2019 will offer an excellent platform for fostering exchanges and collaborations within the rapidly expanding scientific community interested in these topics. The conference will gather together many world-leading experts in the field, and will also provide young researchers with possible funding an opportunity to present their work. The oral presentations will be given by the invited speakers with a wide variety of background and experience and the individuals selected from the submitted abstracts. The program of the symposium will include six oral sessions and two poster sessions covering the following plant N-related topics:
– Sensing and signaling networks
– Interaction with other nutrients
– Plant-microbiota association
– Use efficiency from cell to field
A special issue of the Journal of Experimental Botany is being considered in connection with the Symposium. We welcome proposals for both reviews and original research papers which should include the preliminary article title, author(s) and a short outline for the review or preliminary abstract for the research articles before February 28, 2019.
