Authorised by the International Association of Botanical and Mycological Societies (IABMS), the International Botanical Congress (IBC) is the largest international conference in the fields related to plant sciences. It is held once every six years in locations that rotate among different countries. The IBC not only brings together scientists from many countries/regions, but also from the many disciplines that encompass the plant sciences, including mycology, ecology, agriculture, horticulture, systematics, etc. The congresses provide valuable opportunities for plant scientist from around the world to share new research findings and ideas, to establish international collaborations and to make new friendships and renew old ones.
Official dates will be announced by the host closer to the event.
