INTERDROUGHT VI (IDVI)
09/03/2020 @ 08:00 - 13/03/2020 @ 17:00
Droughts affect crop production across the world. A central challenge for researchers and policymakers is to devise technologies that lend greater resilience to agricultural production under this particular environmental stress.
INTERDROUGHT VI (IDVI) aims to facilitate the development of concepts, methods and technologies associated with plant production in water-limited environments. IDVI follows on from the successful series of congresses in Montpellier 1995, Rome 2005, Shanghai 2009, Perth 2013, Hyderabad, 2017. IDVI will continue the philosophy of presenting, discussing and integrating results of both applied and basic research towards the development of solutions for improving crop production under drought-prone conditions, focused on the following themes:
- Optimising dryland crop production – crop design
- Water capture, transpiration, transpiration efficiency
- Vegetative and reproductive growth
- Breeding for water-limited environments
- Managing cropping systems for adaptation to water-limited environments
The Sixth International Conference, with focus on discussing technologies that lend greater resilience to agricultural production InterDrought VI – 2020 (IDVI), will be held March 9-13, 2020 in Mexico City. Please visit the website for most recent details of the session themes, keynote speakers, and concurrent symposia https://www.interdrought2020.com/
IDVI is hosting an excellent array of invited plenary speakers across the conference themes. The speakers are all world leaders in their respective fields. Sets of concurrent symposia that reflect the conference themes are at an advanced stage of planning. Leading scientists in each topic area are convening these symposia.
Registration details are available via the website. We encourage you to register and take advantage of the early bird rate that is available up to 24 November.
The deadline for submitting abstracts is 5 January 2020. Some abstracts will be selected for oral presentation in the concurrent symposia.
