The first European Congress on Photosynthesis Research ePS-1 2018

June 25-28, 2018, Uppsala Sweden

This conference series is intended to run every four years, two years after the International Congress on Photosynthesis Research. ePS-1 will cover all aspects of photosynthesis, from genetics and molecular mechanisms, to crop yields, artificial photosynthesis and solar fuels. In addition, the ePS-Young meeting for PhD students and postdocs will be run the weekend before the main meeting.  Detailed conference information will be posted in the next few months.

Photosynthesis from Light to Life: An ISPR Meeting in Conjunction with Plant Biology 2018 

July 14-20, 2018, Montreal, Canada

The ISPR specific component will be from July 17 to July 20. The meeting will be held in conjunction with ASPB. Abstract deadline and registration details are available from the conference website.  

For full details, please see the website. 


16th International Symposium on Phototropic Prokaryotes 2018

August 5-9, 2018, Vancouver, Canada

The international Symposium on Phototropic Prokaryotes (ISPP) is an international scientific conference that occurs every third year. The first symposium was in 1973 in Freiburg, Germany. 

For full details, please see the website.


ISPR Conference on Microbial Photosynthesis

August 9-12, 2018, Vancouver, Canada

We are happy to welcome you to Vancouver in the summer of 2018 for a 3-day ISPR-sponsored conference focusing on single-celled phototrophs and photosynthetic mechanisms. Topics will include mechanisms and regulation of fundamental processes (e.g. light harvesting, photosynthetic electron transport, carbon fixation), ecology and ecophysiology of phototrophic organisms in marine and extreme environments, evolution of photosynthetic mechanisms and (endo)symbiotic relationships, as well as new discoveries of organisms and processes. For more information, see the flyer

The symposium will follow immediately after the ISPP (International Symposium on Phototrophic Prokaryotes), allowing attendees of that conference to stay for a few more days to discuss photosynthetic processes in their favourite organisms, but will encompass microbial eukaryotic phototrophs. We expect this unique combination to drive some very interesting discussions!

Graduate &/or Post-Docs interested in participating in the organization of the conference should send a 1-page CV and brief email describing their motivation to participate to Kevin.Redding@asu.edu by January 31. 

For full details, please see the website.


International Symposium on Synthetic Biology in Photosynthesis Research

August 7-10, 2018 Shanghai, China

This symposium will bring together scientists working in the various fields closely related to synthetic biology and photosynthesis research areas to discuss recent progress and brainstorm future opportunities. The meeting organizers are Prof Xinguang Zhu from Chinese Academy of Sciences and Prof. Susanne von Caemmerer from the Australian National Univerity.

For full details, please see the website


The First Asia-Oceania International Congress on Photosynthesis

August 19-23, 2018 Beijing, China

Abstract submission and early-bird registration deadlines are June 30.  Lixin Zhang at the Chinese Academy of Sciences is one of the main organizers of this Congress.

For full details, please see the website.


Feher Fest: George Feher Memorial Symposium

October 5, 2018, University of California San Diego, La Jolla CA

The Feher Fest Symposium will be held to honor the memory and achievements of renowned scientist and photosynthesis researcher George Feher, who passed away on November 28, 2017. Feher was trained as a physicist and made important contributions to solid-state physics at Bell Laboratories where he developed the technique of electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR), widely used to study molecular structure. After moving to San Diego, Feher switched fields to biophysics and made pioneering discoveries in photosynthesis. His work was influential in the explosion of information that we now have on the molecular basis for the photosynthetic apparatus. The symposium will highlight some of Feher’s contributions but will focus on new developments in the research fields that he was passionate about.  The sessions will discuss topics in; Bioenergetics and Photosynthesis, X-ray Crystal Structure Developments, EPR and ENDOR Spectroscopy, and Medical Biophysics. The keynote speaker is Daniel Nocera from Harvard University, who is a proponent of artificial photosynthesis. The symposium will be held on the University of California San Diego campus and be freely open to anyone who wishes to attend.
