Because of the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to reformat the 62nd annual meeting, originally scheduled to take place on site in Matsue to online meeting. We updated General Information on the website.

(October 21, 2020)

Because of the spread of COVID-19, we are spending our days in completely new ways. The annual meetings of various academic societies were also affected, for example, most were cancelled, postponed or conducted online. The 62nd Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Plant Physiologists is scheduled to be held in Matsue as described below, but it may be held online depending on the social situation. If it is held online, we will inform you immediately via our website or e-mail. Regardless of the way the meeting will be held, we will do our best to make the meeting an active place for research presentation and communication among the members of the academic society.

The 62nd Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Plant Physiologists will be held in Matsue for 3 days from Sunday, March 14 to Tuesday, March 16, 2021 at the Matsue Campus of Shimane University. We will do our best to satisfy all the participants at the Matsue meeting through cooperation with the members situated in the vicinity of Shimane University.

Twenty-six years have passed since the last time an annual meeting was held in Matsue (36th Annual Meeting in 1995). Looking back at that meeting, the management of the meeting and research presentations has changed drastically, and we cannot help but feel the progress of the times. On the other hand, nature and historic sites such as Lake Shinji and Matsue Castle will welcome you with the same appearance as before. Please take this opportunity to enjoy Matsue, which retains a historical and traditional appearance.

For this JSPP Annual Meeting, we would like to increase the number of graduate students, young researchers, and participants involved in research on various fields of plant sciences. We are planning a program for graduate students to learn about companies and research institutions in relation to job-hunting activities. Presentation by high-school students will also be given.

The achievements in plant sciences by Japanese scientists are highly rated internationally and have contributed to advances in various fields. I feel that the environment of JSPP, including the friendly atmosphere, facilitates the exchange of opinions, joint research, cooperation in research, and information sharing, supporting the ongoing development of plant sciences in Japan. The JSPP annual meeting plays various roles and provides many opportunities to develop research, to gain clues to solving experimental difficulties, to learn new and rational experimental and analysis methods, and to hear researchers’ opinions before writing a paper. We will do our best to make the JSPP Annual Meeting as meaningful as possible for all participants with your cooperation. There is still some time before the annual meeting, so we would appreciate your comments and suggestions.

We look forward to welcoming many participants to the JSPP Annual Meeting.

Chairperson of the 62nd Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Plant Physiologists.
