The International Plant Phenotyping Syposium has been postponed to 2022
16 March 2021
After careful deliberation and consideration of the global status of the SARS-CoV2 pandemic, the IPPN Executive Board has taken the decision to postpone its 7th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium (IPPS7) to 2022.
The Conference, co-organized in collaboration with Wagningen University, had been initially planned to take place in Wageningen, in October 2021.
“Since we cannot predict the course of the pandemic and the progress of vaccinations globally, especially with respect to international travel, the IPPN Board together with the local organizing team have jointly decided to postpone IPPS7 to 2022.”
We still follow the plan to combine the IPPS7 with the inauguration of the Netherlands Plant Eco-Phenotyping Center in Wageningen! Both events would provide visitors an excellent showcase of the most advanced methods, technologies, and applications in plant phenotyping worldwide.
