The organizing committee welcomes you to the city of Vigo as the venue of the XXIV Meeting of the Spanish Society of Plant Biology and the XVII Spanish Portuguese Congress on Plant Biology which will be held online from 7 to 9 July 2021 (BP 2021).
The BP2021 is a biannual congress sponsored by the Spanish Society of Plant Biology and the Portuguese Society of Plant Physiology which, on its seventh edition, will held 12 scientific sessions that cover several fields related to the functioning of plants and their interaction with other organisms in the ecosystem. Each session will focus not only basic aspects (mineral nutrition, growth and development, phytohormones, short and long distance transport, photosynthesis, etc.) and applied aspects (ecophysiology and plant stress, secondary metabolism, etc.) of plant biology, but also approach the main challenges we, from the study of the plant, face in today’s society (climate change, agricultural production, etc.).
As in the previous editions, we want this kind of meeting to be a forum to publicize the latest conceptual and technological breakthroughs in Plant Biology, fostering the exchange and dissemination of ideas among participants. In addition to this, we also want to raise awareness in society on the importance of research in plants and its repercussion on social challenges we face in a near future. More than 300 scientists (many of them on the forefront of research) from the academic world and private companies of several countries will join this congress to exchange ideas and create or consolidate collaboration lines.
From the organizing committee we would like to encourage all researchers committed to the study of plant systems on its various aspects to contribute to the success of this congress with their attendance and work presentation.
The BP2021 organizing committee has decided to stream this congress live as the most suitable option to the new reality, allowing us to take full advantage of technology and the digital world from the safety of our homes or offices.
Everything has been settle, so don’t hesitate… join us!
