  • July 28–Aug 8, 2014:  25th International Conference on Arabidopsis Research (ICAR), University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    The 25th convening of the International Conference on Arabidopsis Research, the annual main meeting on general topics specific to Arabidopsis. The primary goals for this meeting are to encourage communication and discussion of ideas at the frontiers of Arabidopsis research while simultaneously integrating relevant non-Arabidopsis plant biology topics. In recognition of the significance of this meeting being the 25th Conference, several presenters will address these four points within their research presentation: (1) How Arabidopsis research has impacted their field; (2) The history of how that happened; (3) How continued focus on a deeply developed model will contribute to answering remaining key problems in biology; and (4) how that will impact food security and crop production in a changing climate. This year’s program emphasizes early-career researchers within the conference’s 157 scheduled presentations, and the organizers are developing new workshops for early-career researchers and under-represented minority scientists.
