I am delighted to announce that the Botanical Society of Scotland Student Symposium will be held at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh this year, after a 20 year break. The day promises to be full of interesting talks highlighting the diversity of botanical research in Scotland. It will be held on the 22nd September, and I would like to encourage students to submit abstracts for talks or for posters. Other researchers (non-students) are encouraged to attend too. This is the ideal opportunity for researchers in the early stages of their career in botany or plant science to discuss their research findings in a less intimidating environment, and to meet other botanical students (including undergraduates, Msc and PhD students). There will also be a keynote speech from Professor Richard Abbott (University of St Andrews). The cost of attending is £14, which includes lunch and coffee. I would also appreciate it if you could forward this to anyone else who might be potentially interested. The deadline for abstract submission (200 words) is the 24th July, and registration deadline is the 10th August.
Please don't hesitate to get on contact with any queries.
