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: Solid-state photonics goes extreme ultraviolet

Using ultrashort laser pulses, scientists in Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have demonstrated the emission of extreme ultraviolet radiation from thin dielectric films and have investigated the underlying mechanisms.

In 1961, only shortly after the invention of the first laser, scientists exposed silicon dioxide crystals (also known as quartz) to an intense ruby laser to...

Im Focus: Advance in regenerative medicine

The only professorship in Germany to date, one master's programme, one laboratory with worldwide unique equipment and the corresponding research results: The University of Würzburg is leading in the field of biofabrication.

Paul Dalton is presently the only professor of biofabrication in Germany. About a year ago, the Australian researcher relocated to the Würzburg department for...

Im Focus: Basel Physicists Develop Efficient Method of Signal Transmission from Nanocomponents

Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal “Nature Communications” together with their colleagues from ETH Zurich.

Electronic components are becoming smaller and smaller. Components measuring just a few nanometers – the size of around ten atoms – are already being produced...
