In this event current research topics will be emphasized and future directions will be discussed. The conference offers a broad, high quality  scientific program with eight sessions devoted to different aspects of plant science. Each session will have an invited keynote speaker, known for the work in his/her field:

Dr. Jürgen Kleine-Vehn
Session: Phytohormones

Dr. Jörg Becker
Session: Development

Dr. Lionel Navarro
