Transgenic Plants & Transformation Technologies VI

(February 26-27, 2021)

Welcome to 6th International Conference “Transgenic Plant & Transformation Technologies”!

Plant Transformation and Transgenic Plants are nowadays core research tools to fight against hunger, to open up the new avenues of science, to evolve the crop varieties, which are multipurpose, producing high harvests under normal and natural stressful conditions to make Earth green and prosperous. The major technical challenge facing plant transformation is the development of methods and constructs to produce a high proportion of plants showing predictable and precise transgene expression without collateral genetic damage.

The 6th International Conference “Transgenic Plants & Plant Transformation Technologies” to be held on February 26-27, 2021, in Vienna, Austria will discuss current key objectives of the plant transformation technologies, including understanding and control of precise transgene integration, expression and stability in plants, improved transformation systems, address biosafety considerations and develop GM crops for the benefit of developing countries.

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-day’s event will provide leading academy and industry scientists a platform to communicate recent advances in “Transgenic Plants & Plant Transformation Technologies”, and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaboration.

The 6th International Conference “Transgenic Plants & Plant Transformation Technologies” will cover the following research topics:

  • Agrobacterium and Other Methods of Transformation
  • Transformation of Important Crops
  • Plant Transformation Tools: Vectors, Promoters & Markers
  • Plant Transformation Tools: Marker Free Technologies
  • Plastid Transformation & Molecular Pharming
  • Genome Editing & Genome Engineering
  • Transgenic Plants with Useful Traits
  • Plant Transformation and Public

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, 2020

Early bird registration: October 20, 2020

Please note: The next VISCEA Conference “Plant Cells & Tissues In Vitro IV” will take place immediately before Transgenic Plants & Transformation Technologies VI” Conference on February 24-25, 2021 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 February 26-27, 2021!

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.
