IBC 2017: XIX International Botanical Congress

The International Botanical Congress (IBC) is a major convention that brings together scientists from around the world to discuss new research in the plant sciences. The IBC is held once every six years. The Congresses are particularly notable in that they not only bring together scientists from many countries, but also from many disciplines within the broader research fields related to the plant sciences, including botany, mycology, ecology, horticulture, agriculture, and other related fields.

8th International Conference on Legume Genetics and Genomics

The 8th International Conference on Legume Genetics and Genomics (ICLGG) will be hosted by Hungary between 18-22 September 2017. The venue of the conference is Hotel Azúr, a conference centre and wellness hotel on the southern shore of lake Balaton, in the city of Siófok.

The biannual meetings of ICLGG were launched in 2002 in St. Paul, Minnesota by the initiative of prominent scientists and professionals in the field with the aim to promote the international dissemination and discussion of the most recent research results and achievements of the legume sciences, to support the scientific community, and help the breeders and stakeholders with applications and partnership.

Second Latin-American Conference on Plant Phenotyping for Plant Breeding

The Second Latin-American Conference on Plant Phenotyping and Phenomics (II LAPhPB) aims to bring scientists from all over the world to discuss the current trends in plant phenotyping and to strengthen the Latin-American Plant Phenomics Network built during the first conference, which took place at the University of Talca (Chile) in 2015. The conference will cover the topics:

  • Field Plant Phenotyping using the precision agriculture tools, elaboration of protocols to improve the yield and plant breeding;
  • Novel Non-Invasive Technologies: instrumentation, automation, optical methods, sensors and biosensors, models, softwares, bioinformatics, images and digital signal processing to plant phenotyping, and high-throughput plant phenotyping;
  • Phenotyping for Crop Improvement and to investigate biotic and abiotic stress.
