SLS’20: Pluripotency in Plant Development

Date: 22-25 September 2020

Time: 14:00 -16:00 ( BST 13:00-15:00)

Location: online

Registration: free but limited

Deadline for registration: 28 August 2020 ( also for abstract submission)



Plants as multicellular organisms harbour cells and cell groups that are responsible for growth and patterning of the tissue. The stem cells can be part of the embryo, the shoot or root apical meristem or vascular meristems. They can also be part of developing, regenerating or symbiotic organs. Several gene functions and regulatory networks have been identified that orchestrate the stem cell function. The aim of SLS’20 is to synthesize the current knowledge on the architecture, dynamics and diversity underlying plant stem cell systems, based on a variety of experimental and theoretical approaches.


The programme consists of a mixture of online live and pre-recorded talks, as well as live poster sessions and discussions. Pre-recorded talks and posters will be available for delegates to view a few days before the conference. There will also be optional times where delegates can watch pre-recorded talks related to upcoming sessions in a group if they wish. Some content from the conference will be made publicly available for a limited time for those unable to attend.
