Dear ________________, 

I will be [speaking at / attending / moderating a session at (etc)] the Plant Biology 2021 Worldwide Summit, ASPB’s annual conference. Will you join me?

This will be a fully virtual conference that is taking place July 19 to July 23, 2021. Building on the great success of last year’s first ever fully virtual ASPB annual conference, which attracted over 2,600 plant scientists from 56 countries, the theme this year is FROM a global audience TO a global audience.  The schedule will provide a rich mix of scientific content in plenary talks, concurrent symposia, virtual posters, professional development workshops, and a virtual exhibitor showcase, alongside exciting new opportunities for small-group networking, and social activities – a full schedule of content designed to be accessible across multiple time zones and available on-demand as well as live. 

Among the plenary symposia this year:

  • Crop Productivity in a Changing World (Chair: Kris Niyogi) – This symposium will cover research into the factors that impact crop productivity and diverse approaches to increase and sustain productivity in a changing world.
  • RNA: The Long and Short of it (Chair: Xuemei Chen) – RNAs are versatile molecules that serve informational, structural, catalytic, regulatory, and signaling roles in cells. Mechanisms that generate, process, modify, utilize and degrade RNAs are central to nearly all biological processes. This session focuses on recent findings on novel functions of small regulatory RNAs and metabolic processes on long RNAs.
  • Applications of Robotics, Sensing, and AI to Plant Science (Chair: George Kantor) – This session will address new and emerging AI tools for plant science, with a particular emphasis on agricultural applications such as plant breeding and production management. 

Everything the conference has to offer is at Hope you will register and join me!
