About (from the website):
IBMW2018 will be a 21Ž2 day workshop on the 25-27 of June 2018 (arrival on the 24th June, leave midday 27th June) that will bring together researchers at all stages of their career that are using barley mutant resources to understand many fundamental aspects of cereal biology. Presentations and discussions will be focused on sharing scientific discoveries and new, novel approaches that promote barley as an experimentally amenable and important monocotyledonous crop and model plant. This workshop is a widely requested follow up to a similar and highly successful workshop held in IPK-Gatersleben, Germany, in 2014. To minimise costs, the workshop venue will be mainly at the University of Dundee with a visit to the James Hutton Institute in Dundee, Scotland, a centre of excellence for barley research. The workshop will have a capacity for up to 100 delegates.
IBMW2018 will provide a platform for scientists who routinely exploit barley mutant resources as the underpinning biological resources to explore fundamental aspects of cereal crop genetics. Over the past 10 years by using historical mutant stocks, enormous strides have been made in understanding a wide range of fundamental biological processes in cereal biology. IBMW2018 will focus on providing an opportunity for the next generation of early career scientists to present their research to the wider scientific community, share their experiences and establish new collaborative partnerships with leading groups in the field. An initial e-mail circular to the barley research community indicates an appetite from groups in the USA, Germany, Italy, Japan, Australia, Sweden, Denmark, Poland and the UK to attend the workshop, with the dates already penciled in peoples' diaries.
