Registration has been closed

The Organizing Committee of the International Plant Cold Hardiness Seminar (IPCHS) is pleased to launch this website for all who are planning to participate or who are interested in this conference which will be held in virtual space (Gather), from December 8 to 14, 2021. We cordially invite all of you to join these vital and fruitful discussions in the field of plant cold hardiness research. 

Since the first meeting in St. Paul, USA, in 1977, IPCHS had been held in many cities in different countries. And this time, it will be held in a virtual space for the first time.

Further understanding of fundamental aspects of the nature of plant cold hardiness will likely contribute to the advancement of science well as to the welfare of human and other lives on Earth. At the IPCHS, participants will bring recent findings together and present up-to-the-minute views of active research programs in plant cold hardiness or related fields. The Seminar will include plenary (invited) lectures by senior researchers, selected presentations and poster sessions by grad students and early career researchers. A lecture series by senior researchers for young researchers will also be held, aiming to transfer knowledge and promote free and vigorous discussions.

Deadlines for abstract submission and registration are [here].

This conference is supported by Physiologia Plantarum and Saitama University.

We are planning to publish a special issue in Physiologia Plantarum (IF 4.500) based on the presentations at this seminar. We look forward to your participation.
