Plant Physiology & Biochemistry

(July 9-10, 2018, Vienna, Austria)

Welcome to the International Conference “Plant Physiology & Biochemistry”!

Plants are of crucial importance for the sustainable production of food, feed, raw materials and bio-fuels. The global climate change affects crucial growth regulating environmental factors such as temperature, CO2 concentration and water availability. Within the context of global climate change, Plant Physiology and Biochemistry play an important role in agriculture and food production as a whole, focusing investigations on physiological and biochemical basis of plant growth, development and how plants’ physiology is affected by environment.

The International Conference “Plant Physiology & Biochemistry” to be held on July 9-10, 2018, in Vienna, Austria will discuss advances in Plant Physiology and Biochemistry research,   importance of plant physiology and biochemistry in agriculture, interaction of different metabolic and molecular processes in plant cells, molecular growth of plants, the role of photosynthesis in ability of plant to cope with stressful changes in natural environment, molecular and biochemical basis of stress tolerance of different species and other topics.

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, 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-days event will provide leading academy and industry scientists a platform to communicate recent advances in “Plant Physiology & Biochemistry”, and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaboration.

The International Conference “Plant Physiology & Biochemistry” will cover the following research topics:

  • Cell Wall & Cell Membrane
  • Membrane Transport & Vesicle Traffic
  • Photosynthesis & Photobiology & Photorespiration
  • Growth & Development
  • Signaling & Hormonal Regulation
  • Photoperiodism & Vernalization
  • ROS signaling
  • Applied Plant Physiology & Biochemistry

Among the invited speakers are internationally known names such as*:
Andreas Bachmair (Austria), Markus Teige (Austria), Herman Höfte (France), Marie-Theres Hauser (Austria), Gerd Jürgens (Germany), Jürgen Kleine-Vehn (Austria), Viktor Zarsky (Czech Republic), Christian Fankhauser (Switzerland), Michel Goldschmidt-Clermont (Belgium), Sean Cutler (USA), Joost T. Van Dongen (Germany), Barry Pogson (Australia), Wolfram Weckwerth (Austria), Wolfram Weckwerth (Austria), Elena Baena-Gonzalez (Portugal), Claudia Jonak (Austria), Jaakko Kangasjärvi (Finland), Christine Foyer (UK) and others.
*The list of invited speakers has yet to be confirmed.

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 April 15, 2018.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna on July 9-10, 2018!
