About PhenomicsWebinars

Quantitative assessment of plant environment interaction has become the essential tool to understand how plants develop in a dynamic environment and translate this knowledge into application for crop improvement. Plant phenotyping has been developing very dynamically across the globe within the last years enabling excellent research, novel technology, leading to progress in how plants grow & react with their (biotic-) environment.

The recent spread of SARS-CoV-2 limits opportunities to actively interact, discuss latest results, technological developments as many conferences, workshops and events have been cancelled. To compensate for these shortcomings the plant phenotyping initiatives IPPN, EPPN2020, EMPHASIS provide an exchange platform for the community by organizing a plant phenotyping webinar series that will address all relevant topics in this field.

Abstract Submission Is Now Open (Season 2)

Be part of the next season of PhenomicsWebinars!

We are looking for contributions from researchers from all phenotyping-related fields, and welcome abstract submission by researchers from all career stages. 

This may include research highlights and user-cases from research and application, from the public- or private sector related to plant phenotyping or which use plant phenotyping as an aspect of their work. We especially encourage researchers from fields which are still under-represented in plant phenotyping in order to broaden the scope of applications for which this methodology can be used.

The abstract submissions for the upcoming season running from March to July is closed. Feel free however to submit your abstract for the following season 2 (September to December).
