21–22 May 2024 2024 International Scientific Conference on Plant Biodiversity and Sustainability

Chieti, Italy

The 2024 International Scientific Conference on Plant Biodiversity and Sustainability will be held online from 21 to 22 May 2024.

We believe that PhD and young researchers are key actors to targeting the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the Agenda 2030. They are invited to participate in the conference and share expertise and present results in an international context in order to improve their internationalization. Participation will offer the opportunity to activate interactions and connections useful to improving professional skills as part of an international research network

Think global, act local
The mission of the conference can be identified in a new interpretation of a famous sentence.
Plant Biodiversity and Sustainability represents general concepts that are easily interpreted as heritage related to the environment, but which for most are not something tangible in all day life.

The conference aims to activate awareness in each researcher of the role played by research activity within the context of higher vision.

As "local", we can imagine the works of thousands of researchers that every day invest time and expertise in the study of multiple aspects of the biodiversity, including the products that can be obtained from plant material.

As "global", we can envision the general effect that can be expected from innovative scientific results, from the combination of isolate research products or from cumulative effects deriving from complementary interactions.

From participants, a stronger awareness of the role of their experimental research is expected, which, with a wider point of view, should be interpreted and oriented as action driven by the Sustainable Development Goals.

Among others, the organizing committee have focused primary attention on the 5th goal, Gender equality.
We strongly believe that Gender equality is a human right, a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world, and a prequisite for fruitful scientific approach.

All contributors are invited to highlight the connection between their research work and selected targets among the 17 SDGs of the Agenda 2030.

8–12 June 2024 2024 World Congress on In Vitro Biology

St. Louis, MO, USA

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to join the Society for In Vitro Biology (SIVB) as we return to St. Louis, Missouri, the heart of mid-America’s Biotechnology Community, for our quadrennial 2024 World Congress on In Vitro Biology running from June 8 to 12, 2024. This extraordinary experience includes an outstanding scientific program addressing both the latest developments and core fundamentals of in vitro plant and animal biotechnology, gene editing, and genomics! Join your peers from around the globe to build professional relationships that can support your career! You will not want to miss this opportunity to talk one-on-one with leading experts in a casual atmosphere; present and receive feedback on your research from some of the most respected names in the field; and attend workshops, social events, and scientific tours throughout the event. SIVB offers both in-person and post-meeting “On-Demand Limited Access” registration opportunities to enjoy this year’s 2024 World Congress Program. There are also opportunities for both in person and virtual poster presentations.

The SIVB is pleased to announce that Mark Settles, PhD, Synthetic Biology Investigator at the NASA Ames Research Center and Emeritus Professor at University of Florida, Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology program & Horticultural Sciences Dept, will be the Keynote Speaker at the 2024 World Congress. Dr. Settles received a BA from the University of Delaware, and a PhD from Stony Brook University. He completed his dissertation research at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and a post-doc at the University of Florida (UF). He was the 2000–2021 Vasil-Monsanto Professor of Plant Cell & Molecular Biology at UF, focusing on genomics, maize seed development, environmental stress tolerance, and synthetic genes for biotechnology applications. He was a Program Director in NSF’s 2020 Plant Genome Program and transferred to NASA-Ames in 2021. His program focuses on the application of synthetic biology to deep space exploration and aeronautics. Dr. Settles is an inventor of patents in artificial intelligence and synthetic biology. His June 9th keynote talk will be on “Synthetic Biology to Support Human Exploration of Deep Space.”

SIVB strongly believes that students are the future of science. To support our vision to encourage education and scientific informational exchange, special opportunities will be available to assist the professional development of students. SIVB offers free student registration and membership initiatives, a student awards program, and student oral and poster presentation competitions.
