The meeting will bring together researchers endeavoring to discover the mechanistic basis of stress tolerance in plants at different scales of organization. Our program represents an acknowledgement of the holistic nature of plant-environmental interactions and the need to integrate research topics that span molecular, cellular, developmental, ecological and global scales. The program will focus on salinity and other water-associated stresses, and will now also include pioneering work that examines the interface between these stresses and the biotic realm. Presentations will highlight the power of model systems, tackle evolutionary questions spanning species boundaries, and examine the nexus between basic and applied research using globally relevant crops. Through this interdisciplinary forum, we hope to pool together researchers that are answering the most compelling scientific questions with the broadest impact.
