My talks focused on experiments performed over the last two years using the University of Wollongong’s LIFT instrument, where we simultaneously measure both photosynthesis and SIF. Both talks were received very well and it was a great pleasure to meet fellow researchers in the same field. Moreover, we were lucky enough to have one of the Forschungszentrum Jülich (Jülich photosynthesis centre) LIFT instruments on display at the conference. This instrument formed an integral part of a vendor’s booth run by the company Soliense and the instruments creator Zbigniew Kolber. This was a great attraction as people interested in my talk were able to see the instruments used first hand.
The conference closed with the conference dinner, which turned out to be more of a dance party and was held at an amazing castle. Overall a very enjoyable conference with many interesting and impressive results and research presented. I look forward to attending the next conference in New Zealand!
