Call for Symposia −−Deadline is December 31st, 2015

The Botanical Society of China and the Shenzhen Municipal Government invite you to Shenzhen, China, in July 2017 to participate in the XIX International Botanical Congress (IBC2017). We are eager to welcome plant scientists from around the world to the 2017 IBC for an intellectually stimulating and socially memorable occasion.

All prospective participants are invited to submit a proposal for a general symposium that falls into one of the six broad themes. Submissions will be accepted until December 31st, 2015. Proposed symposia that bridge two or more themes are welcomed and encouraged. Each symposium consists of six presentations, with each being 20 minutes. If there is a need for more than six presentations for some very broad topics, please consider proposing the symposium with two sessions, such as Plant Tree of Life I, and Plant Tree of Life II, each with six speakers.

Once a proposed general symposium is accepted by the Organizing Committee, it will be announced on the congress website and will be open to participants who wish to propose an oral presentation in the congress.

The organizer(s) of each symposium may propose up to four speakers for each symposium and then choose the additional two from the abstracts submitted through the congress website. In addition to the Plenary Lectures and the Keynote Lectures, each participant may be involved in no more than two symposia either as an organizer or as a speaker.

Detailed instructions can be found here and send your proposal to the Congress Scientific Committee. Should you prefer to join the mailing list of the congress, please click the icon "Join Mailing List" or on top-right position of the home page of the official website: .
