Welcome to the official home of the 12th International Plant Sulfur Workshop! We are thrilled to welcome you. Given the uncertainty of international travels due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are planning to hold this workshop as in-person/virtual hybrid format. COVID information for travelers to Canada is available at: COVID-19: Travel, testing and borders - Travel.gc.ca. Attendance in person will respect all COVID protocols in effect at Western University, including mandatory vaccination. The website will be updated with all the information about COVID requirements. London-Ontario is conveniently located approximately two hours away from Toronto, the Niagara region, Detroit and Port Huron. We expect as many colleagues from around the world as possible to be able to attend this meeting this summer.

Conference Scope

The most acknowledged and influential conference series on sulfur continues in its 12th edition. The workshop aims to bring together scientists around the world approaching the biology of sulfur metabolism at the molecular, cellular, whole-plant, and ecosystem levels. In continuation of its fine tradition, the conference will address all aspects of plant sulfur nutrition. The main focus of this conference will be on the mechanisms of coordination of sulfur availability and metabolism with plant growth, development, stress response, gene regulation, protein synthesis, and usage of other nutrients

Indigenous Land Acknowledgment 

We acknowledge that Western University is located on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabek (Ah-nish-in-a-bek), Haudenosaunee (Ho-den-no-show-nee), Lūnaapéewak (Len-ahpay- wuk) and Chonnonton (Chun-ongk-ton) Nations, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and the Dish with One Spoon Covenant Wampum.
