We are pleased to announce the the Cold Spring Harbor Asia conference on Integrative Epigenetics in Plants will be held in Awaji, Japan, located approximately 60 km west of Osaka city.
Please note that entry of foreign nationals into Japan is subject to the latest border measures. From October 11, Japan will resume visa-free entry for travellers from 68-countries. You are required to read and follow the official information about entry into Japan on the website of Ministry of Foreign carefully and strictly.

The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Monday December 12, and will conclude after lunch on December 15, 2022. The conference will include seven oral sessions and one poster session covering the latest findings across many topics in Integrative Epigenetics in Plants. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.

We encourage abstracts to contain new and unpublished materials. The abstracts must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers. Status (fellow's talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.
We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. A certain number of presentations by graduate students and postdocs in this conference will be selected as fellowship (USD $100-$500) awards. For more details, please visit Stipends
We look forward to seeing you at AWAJI in December, 2022.
