We look forward to greeting you at the XIX International Botanical Congress in 2017.

The Partial List of The IBC 2017 Awardees

The IBC 2017 Awards including the Excellent Scholar Award and the Outstanding Student Award are established by the Organizing Committee of the IBC 2017 to assist leading scholars and outstanding students to attend the congress. By the end of the submission period, we had enormous number of applicants from all over the world. Application documents were viewed carefully by our award committee, a panel of experienced experts chosen from the IBC 2017 scientific program committee. We must say that we are deeply impressed by the academic achievements of all the applicants. Upon cautious examinations, our award committee had to make the most difficult decision to decline some of the applications, and here we are announcing a PARTIAL list of the applicants who will be receiving the IBC 2017 awards. The complete recipient list will be available for viewing once we have done a final check. Congratulations to all these IBC 2017 awardees, and once again, we look forward to greeting you in Shenzhen this July!
