Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 1st International Conference on Plant Spectroscopy (http://www.conference.plantspec.org/) organized by the International Society for Plant Spectroscopy (www.plantspec.org) and the Vibrational Spectroscopy Core Facility at Umeå University (http://www.kbc.umu.se/english/visp/), will take place in Umeå, Sweden, 29–30 August, 2017.

The aim of conference is to bring spectroscopy to plant scientists and plant sciences to spectroscopists, and a broad range of topics and techniques will be covered, from roots to pollens and wood, from basic research to industry, from vibrational spectroscopy to autofluorescence, NMR to mass spectrometry and synchrotron based techniques, as well as data analysis.

The Special Issue will include selected papers by authors who were selected, by the scientific organizing committee, to presented at the conference, after successfully finalizing the peer review process of the journal with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.
