The program for Phyllosphere Fortnight 2021 is available here. Each one of the five sessions features a 5-min welcome, one 30-min oral presentation, a 5-min break, followed by five 10-min oral presentations. All oral presentations will be offered synchronously (i.e. live) over Zoom. In addition, for a subset of submitted abstracts that were not selected for a synchronous 30- or 10-min oral presentation, we offer the opportunity to submit a 5-min pre-recorded video presentation which will be made available for asynchronous, online viewing by Phyllosphere Fortnight 2021 registrants in the period between July 16 and 28, 2021. Registration is required to attend the live sessions and to access the pre-recorded video presentations.

A link to the abstracts of all 30- and 10-min presentations and of all submitted 5-min prerecorded videos will be made available to all meeting registrants.

Stay tuned for these instructions.
