Plant Biology 2020 – COVID-19 Statement Update

ASPB is announcing several important updates to Plant Biology 2020 registration policies in light of the current circumstances. Although final decisions are still pending and will be announced within 2 to 3 weeks, we are optimistic that the meeting will go forward, while we continue to explore options that include online access to meeting content. We are encouraged that 95% of speakers have let us know they would be happy to participate in the conference even if it is virtual. We understand that everyone’s plans have been disrupted, so we thank you for your patience – and your input – as we work to figure this out.

Until we can provide further information regarding the conference format, we want to make the registration decision as easy as possible for you. We are therefore continuing to offer early bird registration rates; there will be no increase in fees. Moreover, we are waiving the $50 processing fee that would ordinarily apply to canceled registrations, allowing for full registration refunds if requested.

The more information we can gather from our community, the better – in that regard, we would greatly appreciate you filling out this quick survey with a few questions asking for your thoughts about Plant Biology 2020.


Again, we thank you for your patience and commitment to the Plant Biology conference.

The Plant Biology 2020 Program Committee
