Dates: Thursday evening (August 9) to Sunday evening (August 12)
Place: University of British Columbia campus, Vancouver, Canada
We are happy to welcome you to Vancouver in the summer of 2018 for 3-day ISPR-sponsored conference focusing on single-celled phototrophs and photosynthetic mechanisms. Topics will include mechanisms and regulation of fundamental processes (e.g. light harvesting, photosynthetic electron transport, carbon fixation), ecology and ecophysiology of phototrophic organism in marine and extreme environments, evolution of photosynthetic mechanisms and (endo)symbiotic relationships, as well as new discoveries of organisms and processes. The symposium will follow immediately after the ISPP (International Symposium on Phototrophic Prokaryotes), allowing attendees of that conference to stay for a few more days to discuss photosynthetic processes in their favorite organisms, but will encompass microbial eukaryotic phototrophs. We expect this unique combination to drive some very interesting discussions!
