Key dates:
Fri 12 May Abstract deadline (Contact for Abstract template)
Fri 26 May Acceptance of oral and poster papers
Fri  16 June Early registration deadline

This is the sixth biennial meeting of three plant science societies. Members of any of the three participating societies qualify for discounted registration and links are available on the website.

This year sessions will include the following research themes:

  • Forage biotechnology
  • Climate resilient agriculture and horticulture
  • Novel for food
  • Germplasm conservation
  • Fruit crop physiology
  • Floral development and timing
  • Plant stress resilience mechanisms
  • Postharvest
  • Agriculture and horticulture for development

but as always we welcome presentations on any aspect of Plant Biology.

Abstracts (up to 250 words) will be called for on the website and should be submitted by Friday 12 May 2023. Notification of provisional acceptance as oral or poster presentations will be given by Friday 26 May 2023 and registration must be completed by Friday 16 June 2023 to qualify for our generous early bird discount. After that date only poster presentations can be accepted; so if you are accepted for oral presentation but do not pay at the earlybird rate then your presentation will automatically change to a poster.

This conference is intended to be face-to-face. All presentations should be in person.

Conference dinner and Awards ceremony for any recipients present will be held at Massey University on Wednesday 5th July 2023 at a cost of $100.00. All three societies will hold their Annual General Meetings on 5th July before the dinner.
