The 2017 Barcelona Conference is rapidly drifting into the past and preparations have begun for what promises to be another outstanding event, this time at the South China Agricultural University in Guangzhou, during 9-13 June 2018. I want to thank the Pau Costa Foundation for the organisational efforts that ensured the 2017 event ran smoothly. Particular thanks are due to Núria Prat-Guitart who worked tirelessy, ably assisted by Anna Fàbrega and the rest of their team of local hosts. In China there will once again be a terrific line-up of interesting speakers and some great opportunities for social interaction among like minded researchers. I recommend that you start planning now and make a commitment to participate, catching up with old acquaintances or expanding your research network. Those of you who joined me and most of the RMA Board in Barcelona can attest to the enjoyment experienced during these meetings with their relaxed, friendly, and collegiate atmosphere in locations amidst magnificently diverse natural environments. Students, early career researchers, and those with substantial experience and achievement, intermingle in an unpretentious manner which is why many of us have kept coming back each year. I sincerely hope that you will join me at our next meeting and look forward to seeing you in Guangzhou in 2018.
