Plant Biotic Stresses & Resistance Mechanisms V

(September 4-5, 2023)

Welcome to the 5th International Conference “Plant Biotic Stresses & Resistance Mechanisms”!

Despite that the modern crops are mainly intensive, high yield with good resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses, in some regions up to 30% yield are lost every year because of diseases or other stresses. Biotic Stress occurs as a result of damage done to plants by other living organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, beneficial and harmful insects, weeds, and cultivated or native plants. Therefore, understanding the mechanisms of resistance to plant biotic stress and plant diseases is one of the hottest areas of modern plant science.

The 5th International Conference “Plant Biotic Stresses & Resistance Mechanisms” to be held on September 4-5, 2023, in Vienna, Austria will discuss the most recent advances in understanding and combating plant biotic stress and resistance mechanisms and to define new frontiers in this field.

This two-days event will provide leading academy and industry scientists a platform to communicate recent advances in “Plant Biotic Stresses & Resistance Mechanisms”, and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaboration.

The 5th International Conference “Plant Biotic Stresses & Resistance Mechanisms” will cover the following research topics:

  • NLR Structure & Signaling Mechanisms
  • Immune Signaling
  • Endophyte Induced Plant Immunity
  • Immune Signaling and Plant Hormones
  • Role of Effectors in Host Manipulation
  • Translation Research in Plant Immunity
  • Omics in Plant Immunity

Among the invited speakers are internationally known names such as:

Approximately 250 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, exhibitions, and interesting breakout sessions.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is May 05, 2023

Early bird registration: May 26, 2023

Please note: The next VISCEA Conference “Plant Abiotic Stress Tolerance” will take place immediately after “Plant Biotic Stresses & Resistance Mechanisms Conference on September 6-7, 2023 at the same location! We are pleased to offer you the chance to participate and register online for both at once for a very attractive registration fee!

We are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna on September 4-5, 2023!

Submit an Abstract

The Scientific Committee invites authors to submit abstracts to be considered for inclusion in the Scientific Program.

The text length in all required fields (abstract title, authors names, affiliations, abstract body) is strictly limited to 1500 characters including spaces. The title of the Abstract, corresponding author information and Abstract text should be entered into the corresponding fields, indicated below.

Abstracts may only be submitted in the English language.

Required Fields:
a) The title of the abstract.
b) The name and address of the corresponding author, to whom correspondence will be sent.
c) Names and complete addresses of all authors.
d) Abstract body.
e) Session, in which the abstract could fit the best.
f) 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°
  • Do not use accented letters such as ä , ü or ß. Use unaccented letters instead. Field with incorrect characters will be highlighted with red and abstract submission will not proceed further.
  • Do not try to include diagrams, pictures or tables in your abstract, as they will be lost.
  • The contact author (submitter) must also supply a valid E-mail address.
