Event Details

Join PAS at the 5th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium (IPPS 2018), hosted this year by the Australian Plant Phenotyping Facility.

Preeminent speakers from around the world will share the latest knowledge in plant phenotyping tools and technologies as well as data management, analysis and visualisation to approximately 250 participants.

From plant
Trying to understanding the interaction of a plant’s genotype with the environment is a key driver of plant phenomics. How can we measure large numbers of plants in varying environmental conditions to identify the traits that will make them more tolerant to our changing climate? How can we use latest camera and sensor technology to get a better understanding of plant physiological processes and the environment in which they grow?
To data
As data acquisition improves rapidly in volume and complexity, the phenotyping bottleneck is shifting to data. How do we ensure the data we capture is high-quality and relevant? How do we combine different data sources to enrich the phenotyping measurement information? How do we annotate and manage data so it can be shared, re-used and queried?
To impact
Plant phenomics brings together a whole suite of expertise, from plant biologists to engineers and statisticians. Working collaboratively, these disciplines can advance our understanding of plant performance and resilience, and we can make progress towards identifying the genetics of stress tolerance and breeding higher yielding crops.
IPPS2018 represents and outstanding opportunity to connect with the plant science community, raise your profile and promote your products.
