23rd International Congress on Sexual Plant Reproduction 2014 Porto

  • Conference Call
  • The XXIII Sex­ual Plant Repro­duc­tion Meet­ing invites you to attend the 2014 con­fer­ence, held in Porto, Por­tu­gal on July 13 – 18, 2014 at the Tiara Park Atlantic Hotel Porto organ­ised by the Sex­ual Plant Repro­du­tion and Devel­op­ment Lab­o­ra­tory (SPReD), Uni­ver­sity of Porto.

    This is a series of meet­ings that take place every two years, and are unique oppor­tu­ni­ties for hun­dreds of sex­ual plant repro­duc­tion enthu­si­asts from all over the world to get together.

    Con­gress Theme: Seeds for the future

    Impor­tant when global demand and con­sump­tion of agri­cul­tural crops for food, feed, and fuel is increas­ing at a rapid pace. The appli­ca­tion of genetic prin­ci­ples to improve cul­ti­vated plants is fun­da­men­tal and new vari­eties can result only from improve­ments over the exist­ing vari­eties in par­tic­u­lar char­ac­ter­is­tics or in com­bi­na­tions of char­ac­ter­is­tics. The use of model plants to learn the fine points of seed pro­duc­tion is essen­tial to improve crop production.

    A wide vari­ety of top­ics are included in the pro­gram for the Porto meet­ing in 2014, flower devel­op­ment, male and female game­to­phyte devel­op­ment and func­tion, pol­li­na­tion and fer­til­iza­tion mech­a­nisms and self-​incompatibility, meio­sis, epi­ge­net­ics, apomixis, seed and fruit devel­op­ment and plant repro­duc­tion for species conservation.

    Enjoy an excel­lent sci­en­tific pro­gram together with the field’s fore­most experts and the promis­ing new­com­ers, all while immersed in the warm hos­pi­tal­ity of the city.

    If you wish to hold an oral pre­sen­ta­tion or show­case a poster match­ing any of the ses­sion top­ics listed below, please sub­mit your abstract together with the reg­is­tra­tion details until April 26, 2014.
