Sustainability of crop production to meet the increasing metabolic demands of humanity requires innovative techniques to assess plant production. The International Workshop on Crop Photosynthetic Ecophysiology (IWCPE) will focus on current tools, theory and techniques in crop physiology measurements. Through both theoretical lectures and practical in-the-field experience, attendees will have the opportunity to experience and learn the latest methods for measuring plants in a field setting. The IWCPE brings together a unique blend of world experts in measurements together with leading instrument manufactures. Theory and application lectures will cover topics including carbon assimilation, water use, chlorophyll fluorescence, hyperspectral, and modeling on scales ranging from the leaf-level to field-scale measurements.
Confirmed speakers include:
• Susanne von Caemmerer
• Robert Furbank
• Carl Bernacchi
• Jochem Evers
• Congming Lu
• Shaobing Peng
• Xinguang Zhu
Hands-on sessions will provide opportunity for attendees to interact with the latest instruments and technical staff from manufactures.
Confirmed manufactures include:
• LI-COR Biosciences
The workshop is open to students and postdoctoral researchers.
The course will be held at the field-research station at Crop Physiology and Production Center (CPPC), College of Plant Science and Technology, Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan, Hubei 430070 P.R. China.
Attendees accommodations will be at the International Academic Exchange Center located on the Huazhong Agricultural University campus.
Course registration fee: 1500 RMB (for Chinese participants) or 250 US Dollars (for non-Chinese participants), which will be used to pay for the costs associated with the workshop, lunch and dinners.
