Plant Abiotic Stress Tolerance VII (February 2024)
Welcome to the 7th International Conference on “Plant Abiotic Stress Tolerance”!
Abiotic stresses, defined as the negative impact of non-living factors on the living organisms in a specific environment are the primary causes of crop loss worldwide. Abiotic stresses include high and low temperatures, salinity, drought, flooding, heavy metal stress and many other environmental factors. Plant tolerance to these stresses is dependent on the molecular networks involved in stress perception, signaling, and the expression of specific stress-related genes and metabolites.
The 7th International Conference “Plant Abiotic Stress Tolerance” to be held on February 7-8, 2024, in Vienna, Austria will discuss the most recent advances in understanding and combating plant abiotic stress and tolerance mechanisms and to define new frontiers in this field.
This two-day event will provide leading academy and industry scientists a platform to communicate recent advances in “Plant Abiotic Stress Tolerance”, and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaboration.
The 7th International Conference on “Plant Abiotic Stress Tolerance” will cover the following research topics:
- Plant Response to Heat Stress
- Plant Response to Temperature & Drought
- Plant Response to Salt & Osmotic Stress
- Plant Response to Nutrient Stress & Heavy Metals
- Plant Response to Oxidative- and Flooding Stress
- Plant Abiotic Stress Signaling
- Breeding & Engineering of Abiotic Stress Tolerance
Approximately 200 participants are expected to attend this exciting scientific forum including almost 30 lectures delivered by worldwide known invited speakers and young, talented speakers selected from submitted abstracts. The program combines plenary lectures, poster sessions, a unique Conference Dinner Party and sightseeing tours of Vienna.

- Names and complete addresses of all authors.
- Abstract body.
- Session, in which the abstract could fit the best.
- Preferred type of abstract presentation (poster or oral).
- Do not use any characters, which cannot be found on a standard English computer keyboard – e.g. use *20 degrees” rather than 20°
