XX International Botanical Congress – Madrid, Spain
As Chair of the International Association of Botanical and Mycological Societies (IABMS) I am trying to help spread news about preparations for the upcoming International Botanical Congress in Madrid, Spain next year. I am sending this message to representatives of numerous botanical, mycological and phycological professional societies around the world. I am hoping that you will pass this news along to your members. Apologies to IABMS member organizations who already received this message.
Planning for the International Botanical Congress is progressing rapidly and the website includes a great deal of useful information. The IBC will be in Madrid in July 2024. The list of invited speakers is very exciting with a diverse group of individuals from around the world addressing a wide range of subjects of broad interest. The list of excursions is also very exciting with a variety of one day and multi-day excursions planned.
The organizers of the IBC are now inviting submissions of abstracts for oral and poster presentations! In addition, online registration is now open with an early registration discount.
