CRISP & Plant Genome Editing II

(February 18-19, 2022)

Welcome to the 2nd International Conference “CRISPR & Plant Genome Editing II”!

CRISPR – CAS9 System revolutionized Life Sciences and Plant Biotechnology that seek to develop new technologies for the precise manipulation of genes and genomes in cellula and in vivo. In addition to its use for advancing our understanding of basic biology, CRISPR based genome editing and genome engineering has numerous real-world applications, e.g. engineering plants that better provide fuel, food and industrial raw materials. Driven by advances in the CRISPR-toolbox for rapid, cheap, multiplex modification of genomes and breakthroughs in DNA synthesis technologies, the pace of progress enabled by these tools in the last 2 years has been breathtaking.

The 2nd International Conference “CRISPR & Plant Genome Editing to be held on February 18-19, 2022, in Vienna, Austria will discuss the advances in CRISPR-CAS9 system and its application in genome editing and engineering. The case study and sessions will reveal the potential application of CRISPR and other Genome editing tools for plant biology and crop improvement. Special emphasis will be given on CRISPR system, addressing the concept, technology, challenges like off-target effects, efficiency improvement and delivery systems 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, 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 “CRISPR & Plant Genome Editing”, and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaboration.

The 2nd International Conference “CRISPR & Plant Genome Editing” will cover the following research CRISPR-CAS9: Revolution in Genome Editing & Engineering

  • Current CRISPR-CAS9 Technologies and Design
  • Applications of CRISPR-CAS9 in Plants
  • Genome Editing & Engineering for Crop Improvement
  • Genome Editing & Engineering: Regulatory Aspects

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.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is October 1, 2021

Early bird registration: October 20, 2021

We are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna on February 18-19, 2022!

Submit an Abstract

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

Please, be aware, that ONE Abstract Submission is allowed for ONE Registered Participant. Organizing Committee urges you to follow this rule.

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.
b) Names and complete addresses of all authors.
c) Abstract body.
d) Session, in which the abstract could fit the best.
e) 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.

    Enter the title of your abstract and the type of your abstract presentation:
