The 12th Botanical Microscopy Meeting is the latest in a long running series of RMS sponsored meetings, dating back to the 1960s, encompassing all aspects of bioimaging relating to modern plant cell biology. There will be a plenary speaker on the Sunday evening plus a further 7 keynote speakers, covering six scientific sessions. The rest of the programme will be chosen from offered talks, with a poster session on the Monday evening. Topics will be a mix of state-of-the art microscopy combined with the latest developments in plant cell biology, including morphogenesis, plant membranes, organelle dynamics, plant-microbe interactions as well as quantitative imaging and image analysis. There will be an exhibition on Monday to Wednesday. The conference dinner will be at The Assembly House, a Georgian gem, described by historians as one of the most important buildings in Norwich.

Optional tours will be available around the JIC Bioimaging unit (light and electron microscopy facilities) and also to see The JIC Special Collection; this rare book collection is regarded as particularly outstanding, not only because it embraces five centuries of botanical literature, but also because it houses many works that are landmarks in the history of plant science, the earliest of which is Ortus Sanitatus, a herbal dated 1511. It also includes extremely beautifully illustrated and highly valuable works such Les liliacées by Pierre-Joseph Redouté, 1807.

We look forward to welcoming you to Norwich!
