7th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium (2022)

The 7th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium, IPPS 2022, brings together a multidisciplinary community of plant biologists, ecologists, engineers, agronomists and computer scientists. In a rich and diverse networking environment we foster knowledge exchange, collaboration and innovation.

UPDATE:  EARLY BIRD  & Abstract submission periods extended

  • Early Bird Registration closes:  May 1, 2022 [NEW]
  • Abstract Submission closes:  May 15, 2022  [NEW]

IPPS 2022 will serve as a platform to discuss and realize options to harness the power of plant phenotyping and contribute to a sustainable future. The conference brings together prominent speakers from around the globe and offers an excellent network opportunity for companies and other partners from the private sector.

Become a IPPS2022 Sponsor or Exhibitor

IPPS2022 offers various possibilities for industry to sponsor the conference and to exhibit its products to an expected audience of over 400 international participants.

Companies can be main sponsor of the conference choosing from three different packages, Gold, Silver or Bronze. Each of these packages comes with a number of supplementary free conference registrations. In addition, members of the IPPN Industry Section will receive a discount on the package prize.

If a somewhat lighter sponsorship is preferred we can offer individual sponsorship items or even a complete customized sponsorship package.
