Palais de Congres de Montreal

Thank you for attending Plant Biology 2018!  Here’s your guide for Monday and as always, when in doubt, you can check the schedule and the conference app, or stop by Registration and ask one of our friendly volunteers. There’s even more information on the Plant Biology 2018 network on Plantae, including a bit of tourist information in the “Sights and Sounds of Montreal” post. Also, if you haven’t already, please check out our code of conduct and social media policy— and hashtag #plantbio18 if you are using Twitter.
