We aim to promote basic research in crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) by integrating functional genomics with biochemistry, physiology, development, ecology, and evolutionary studies to gain new insights into the regulatory mechanisms and evolutionary origins of the pathway. We will highlight the potential of CAM research for tackling bioenergy and environmental challenges pertaining to water security and resource limitation and the maintenance of productivity and ecosystems services in a changing world. In addition to this, specific talks will look at new research areas and address the big questions for future research. The symposium will take place over four days starting at around lunchtime on Tuesday 15th July 2014 and ending in the evening of Friday 18th July 2014. Twenty four invited talks will stimulate focused discussion and the exchange of ideas at what will be a relatively small (around 120 delegates) and informal meeting. There will be dedicated time for discussions, posters, selected poster talks and a conference dinner.
