From Place to Space: Tracing the Spatial Dimension of Plant Sciences


7th September 2022, ETH Zürich, Audimax

Save the 7th of December 2022 and look forward to exiting talks given by a diverse panel of speakers highlighting the relevance of spatial organization in plant sciences from the perspectives of the cellular space, the plant space, the ecosystem space, and even the outer space!
We are particularly excited about this year’s edition of the Symposium as after two years of online sessions, it will finally bring the whole Plant Science Center community back together on site.

Summer School 2022 – Application of Machine Learning in Plant Sciences

Application of Machine Learning in Plant Sciences

12-16 September 2022, EinsiedelnSwitzerland

The Summer School will provide an overview of current machine learning (ML) techniques, their challenges and opportunities. ML is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that allows software applications to become more accurate at predicting outcomes without being explicitly programmed to do so.

The Summer School is especially aimed at participants with a background in plant sciences. You will gain an understanding of the concept of ML and insights into its potential and possible applications. You will learn how ML is being used in research fields of soil science, microbiology, ecology, biodiversity, agriculture, plant breeding, and plant pathology.

The Summer School will bring together a multidisciplinary group of participants and facilitate project-based teamwork to strengthen collaborations in different fields and to foster networking.

Visit the Summer School Website for details and registration! Deadline for registration is: 13 June 2022.
