Plant Cell & Tissue Culture In Vitro IV
(July 4-5, 2022)
Welcome to the 4th International Conference on “Plant Cell & Tissue Culture In Vitro”!
Plant cell, cultured in vitro, are able to regenerate into the complete fertile plants under the appropriate culture and environment conditions, e.g. plant cells are totipotent. Currently, the technology is not only the great tool in basic research, such as cell biology, genetics, biochemistry and biotechnology, but has also the direct commercial importance in the Mass Plant Micro-propagation, Genetic Transformation, Genome Editing, Speeding up Breeding Process via production of Doubled Haploids, Production of Secondary Metabolites, etc.
The 4th International Conference on “Plant Cell & Tissue Culture In Vitro” to be held in Vienna, Austria on July 4-5, 2022 will discuss wide range of modern in vitro plant cell and tissue culture technologies, fundamental aspects of plant cell totipotency, differentiation, regeneration, embryogenesis, and practical applications of plant cell in vitro technologies for crop improvement.
This two-day event will provide leading academy and industry scientists a platform to communicate recent advances in “Plant Cell & Tissue Culture In Vitro”, and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaboration.
The 4th International Conference on “Plant Cell & Tissue Culture In Vitro” will cover the following research topics:
- Plant Cell Totipotency & Differentiation
- Plant Cell Organogenesis & Regeneration
- Somatic Embryogenesis
- Anther/Microspore Cultures (Androgenesis)
- Ovary/Ovule Cultures (Gynogenesis)
- Plant Cell Suspensions
- Plant Cell Bioreactors
- In Vitro Fertilization
- Plant Transformation
Among the invited speakers are internationally known names such as:
Attila Fehér (Hungary), Christophe Gaillochet (Belgium), Pedro Pablo Gallego (Spain), Fredy Altpeter (USA), Pilar S Testillano (Spain), María Pilar Vallés (Spain), Ewa Grzebelus (Poland), Andreas Schiermeyer (Germany), Iwona Zur (Poland), Nieves Vidal (Spain), Klaus Palme (Germany), Agnieszka Szopa (Poland), Ralf Welsch (Germany), …
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 June 10, 2022
Early bird registration: June 20, 2022
Please note: The next VISCEA Conference “Transgenic Plants & Transformation Technologies” will take place immediately after “Plant Cell & Tissue Culture In vitro“ Conference on July 6-7, 2022 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!

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.
