2012 Physiological Society of America Annual Meeting

Have you longed to visit one of the nation's most historic, beautiful cities in a Phycological context? If so, it is with great pleasure that we announce the opening of registration for the 2012 Phycological Society of America to be held June 20th- June 23rd at the Frances Marion hotel in lovely Charleston, South Carolina. Registration will commence on March 1, with abstract submission open until May 1. Contributed papers and posters in all areas of prokaryotic and eukaryotic phycology are welcome, including such topics as: reproduction and life history strategies; light harvesting; interactions between species and trophic levels; aquaculture; development of biofuels and other algal products; parasitism; education including service learning projects; morphological taxonomy linked to genetic phylogenies; HABs; invasive species; cell physiology and biochemistry with respect to environmental gradients; taxonomy; health and nutrition; population structure and genetic diversity; and new insights into cellular and developmental biology.

The meeting will feature four major symposia: 1) Red algal phylogenomics, 2) Algal-viral interactions, 3) Algae in coastal ecosystems, and 4) Algae as indicators in freshwater ecosystems. We will also have the following exciting workshops: 1) Introductory Genomics Tools, 2) Advanced Genomics Tool, and 3) Analysis of Multivariate Data from Ecology and Environmental Science, using PRIMER v6. In addition, we have planned an NSF Townhall meeting, several education and scientific endeavors and of course and all the general festivities one would expect from such an august society (e.g., Bold talks, auction, etc.)
