Sulfur High Up in Down Under

18.10.2010
8th International Workshop on Sulfur Metabolism in Higher Plants at The University of Melbourne - Creswick Campus - November 22nd - 27th, 2010

The 8th International Workshop on "Sulfur Metabolism in Plants: Mechanisms and Application to Food Security and Responses to Climate Change" will be held at The University of Melbourne - Creswick Campus (Water Street, Creswick, Victoria 3363, Australia) starting November 22nd - 27th, 2010.

The aim of the Plant Sulfur Workshop series is to broaden, to integrate and to further strengthening research on "Managing Sulfur Metabolism in Plants", "Sustainable Development, Global Change and Ecosystems" and "Food Quality and Safety".

This is implemented by regular scientific meetings covering the actual relevant topics of plant sulfur research including workshops focused on
- post genomic technologies and plant sulfur nutrition,
- engineering quality,
- cross-talk of metabolic pathways interacting with sulfur,
- managing sulfur nutrition,
- diagnosing sulfur deficiency,
- sulfur in plants and stress responses,
- push-pull regulation of sulfur assimilation pathways,
- (global) regulators of sulfur metabolism,
- interaction between sulfur and nitrogen metabolism.
The proceedings have been published in a series and that of the 8th International Workshop will be published by Springer in 2011.

The Institute for Crop and Soil Science of the Julius Kühn-Institute in Braunschweig is specialized on research in the field of sulfur fertilization and yield, quality and health of agricultural crops and medicinal plants. In Creswick, up-to-date research in the field of sulfur and biotic interactions with special view to Sulfur-Induce Resistance (SIR) will be presented for different host/pathogen systems and strategies provided for applied S fertilization practices in different crop systems, which live up to all agronomic aspects.

The workshop is jointly organized by

- Julius Kühn-Institute, Braunschweig, Germany;
- University of Melbourne, Australia,
- University of Groningen, The Netherlands,
- Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand,
- International Plant Nutrition Institute, Horsham, Australia,
- CSIRO Plant Industry, Canberra, Australia,
- Rothamsted Research, Harpenden U.K.,
- Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, Golm, Germany,
- University of Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany,
- RIKEN Plant Science Center, Yokohama, Japan.
Previous Plant Sulfur Workshops in this series were held in Haren, the Netherlands, 1989; Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, 1992; Newcastle upon Tyne, U.K., 1996; Wengen, Switzerland, 1999; Montpellier, France, 2002; Kisarazu, Chiba, Japan, 2005; Warsaw, Poland, 2008.

Im Focus: Virtual Reality: 3D Human Body Reconstruction from Fraunhofer HHI digitizes Human Beings

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich Hertz Institute, HHI have developed a method by which the realistic image of a person can be transmitted into a virtual world. The 3D Human Body Reconstruction Technology captures real persons with multiple cameras at the same time and creates naturally moving dynamic 3D models. At this year’s trade fairs IFA in Berlin (Hall 11.1, Booth 3) and IBC in Amsterdam (Hall 8, Booth B80) Fraunhofer HHI will show this new technology.

Fraunhofer HHI researchers have developed a camera system that films people with a perfect three-dimensional impression. The core of this system is a stereo...

Im Focus: Streamlining accelerated computing for industry

PyFR code combines high accuracy with flexibility to resolve unsteady turbulence problems

Scientists and engineers striving to create the next machine-age marvel--whether it be a more aerodynamic rocket, a faster race car, or a higher-efficiency jet...

Im Focus: X-ray optics on a chip

Waveguides are widely used for filtering, confining, guiding, coupling or splitting beams of visible light. However, creating waveguides that could do the same for X-rays has posed tremendous challenges in fabrication, so they are still only in an early stage of development.

In the latest issue of Acta Crystallographica Section A: Foundations and Advances , Sarah Hoffmann-Urlaub and Tim Salditt report the fabrication and testing of...

Im Focus: Piggyback battery for microchips: TU Graz researchers develop new battery concept

Electrochemists at TU Graz have managed to use monocrystalline semiconductor silicon as an active storage electrode in lithium batteries. This enables an integrated power supply to be made for microchips with a rechargeable battery.

Small electrical gadgets, such as mobile phones, tablets or notebooks, are indispensable accompaniments of everyday life. Integrated circuits in the interiors...
