The next XV Portuguese Spanish Plant Water Relations Symposium (Plant Water Relations Lisbon 2020) will take place in Lisbon (Oeiras), Portugal, from 30 September to 2 October 2020.
This Symposium, gathers researchers, practitioners, stakeholders and students every two years, since 1993. The Plant Water Relations Lisbon 2020 will focus on the theme “Water relations under climate change: from genes to ecosystem”.
Plant Water Relations Lisbon 2020 assembles an inspiring scientific program bringing together contributions and discussions on sustainable water use in agricultural and forest systems for increasing plant productivity and other ecosystem services.
Furthermore, researchers, politicians, and practitioners will discuss in a special session the best water management strategies coping with future warmer conditions and scarcer water resources. Finally, a satellite workshop, will address novel and critical plant phenotyping methodologies related to water relations.
We welcome contributions from a large variety of themes within the scope of plant water relations. These include fundamental and applied research, molecular to remote sensing scales, or policy issues regarding water management. You are also invited to submit your results to a special issue of the Agriculture Water Management journal.
We also want participants to enjoy the social part of the symposium, the city of Lisbon, Oeiras, and a beautiful coastline. Why not take a surf lesson in Carcavelos beach Wednesday afternoon after the end of the symposium?
Attending to the important topic “Water relations under climate change: from genes to ecosystem” we do anticipate an interesting and very productive Plant Water Relations Lisbon 2020. We therefore encourage everyone to participate and contribute to this call.
We look forward to seeing you in Portugal!
