A satellite meeting following the 5th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium (IPPS) 2018, Adelaide, Australia

Given the long lived nature of plantation forest tree species and the real world environments that they are planted into it has not been possible to easily explore the phenotype of species in planted forests. However, with recent advances in remote sensing it is now possible to collect phenotypic data for trees, relieving the phenotyping bottle neck that has been associated with forestry.

The theme of the two day workshop is to explore the advances and opportunities in forest phenotyping and to observe current research activities in one of the largest planted forests in the world.

We are putting together a stimulating programme that will include on the first day an invited key note speaker and volunteered papers. On the second day we will travel through Kaingaroa Forest, one of the largest planted forests in the world visiting areas of interest where the forest phenotype is being explored.

Contributions are invited for volunteered presentations. 20 minutes will be allocated including 15 minutes for the presentation followed by 5 minutes for questions. Abstracts should be submitted by Friday 31st of August for consideration by the organisers. Successful presenters will be advised by the 7th of September. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words and provide a clear statement of what will be covered in the presentation. Poster presentations will also be considered as well as there are limited slots for presentations.
