The internationally renowned series of New Phytologist Symposia supports emerging and key areas of plant science research. These meetings usually last between one and three days, with invited speakers and a maximum of 120 delegates. In this way, we hope to provide an informal atmosphere for the stimulation and exchange of ideas and the building of collaborations. We particularly encourage the involvement of early career researchers, and as such a number of travel grants will be awarded in association with each meeting.

If you are interested in organising a New Phytologist Symposium, please complete the proposal pro forma and email this to Freja ( by 29 February 2020. Feel free to get in touch with any queries or for guidance on completing the proposal. 

We also welcome workshop proposals throughout the year and there is no set deadline for these; we can support workshops scheduled from 2021 onwards. Further details here:
