Plant Development: Systems Approach
(February 11-12, 2019, Vienna, Austria)

Welcome to the 2nd International Conference on “Plant Development: Systems Approach”!

Plant development is the process by which structures originate and mature as a plant grows. Over the past couple of decades, the plant developmental biology has primarily focused on the nano scale, with the goal of identifying the molecular players underlying the core processes of development. Now the field is moving on to understanding the properties of the dynamic systems driven by these molecular players.

The International Conference on “Plant Development: Systems Approach” to be held on February 11-12, 2019, in Vienna, Austria will discuss the application of molecular approaches, the role of meristem-derived signals in patterning developing organs, cellular mechanisms of development in flowering plants etc.

Vienna is located in the heart of Europe on the banks of the Danube River, and considered as one of the most important economic, cultural and touristic large cities of central Europe. Apart from providing top science lectures, the Conference will capture the spirit of the city, thanks to the central location of the venue offering a multitude of cultural events.

This two-day event will provide the leading academy and industry scientists with a platform to communicate recent advances in “Plant Development”, and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaboration.

The 2nd International Conference on “Plant Development: Systems Approach” will cover the following research topics:

  • Seed Development, Dormancy and Germination
  • Plant Organ Development (Shoot, Root, Leaf)
  • Making Plant Flower
  • Modeling and Systems Biology of Plant Development
  • Plant Male and Female Gametophyte Development
  • Plant Zygotic and Somatic Embryogenesis and Regeneration
  • Hormones and Plant Development
  • Signaling in Plant Development
  • Plant Cell Fate, Totipotency, Lineage and Polarity
  • Epigenetics and Plant Development

Approximately 350 participants are expected to attend this exciting scientific forum including almost 40 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.

Early Bird Registration Deadline is November 15, 2018!

We are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna on February 11-12, 2019!
