Invitation to the international Botanik-Tagung (BT2024)

Prof. Dr. Edgar Peiter and his organizing committee invite all plant scientists to take part in Botanik-Tagung, the International Conference of the German Society for Plant Sciences, at Halle/Saale, Germany, from 15th until 19th September 2024. The programme brings together 29 internationally leading plenary and keynote speakers, who span the entire field of plant sciences - from molecules to ecosystems. This year’s motto Growing Solutions for Growing Challenges reflects the potential of plant sciences to counter existential problems of our planet, such as carbon sequestration and the adaptation of crops to climate change challenges. The Botanik-Tagung furthers scientific exchange to improve our fundamental understanding of plants and to translate it into resilient crops and ecosystems. Workshops, the programme, and the city of Halle stimulate to socialize and to continue scientific discussions until late

End of August our German Society for Plant Sciences held its conference at the University of Bonn to cover the broad range of plant science topics, to support exchange among the more than 600 participating scientists, bring together established and early career researchers, and to provide opportunities for cooperation and networking. In his report, conference chair Professor Andreas Meyer not only mentions the impressive history of plant sciences at the University of Bonn but also gives an overview about the scientific topics at the conference, the awards given and informs about the answers to a quiz the local organizers invented for this conference.

Invitation to Botanik-Tagung 2022

Conference flyer for the upcoming Botanik-Tagung 2022 (pdf)

Prof. Dr. Andreas Meyer and his organizing committee invite all plant scientists to take part in Botanik-Tagung, International Conference of the German Society for Plant Sciences, in Bonn, Germany. 

Dear colleagues and friends,

We are back! Delayed by one year, we are now able to organize and run the next International Conference of the German Society for Plant Sciences (Botanik-Tagung 2022) as an in-person conference. On behalf of the German Society for Plant Sciences, I would like to invite you to Bonn for a lively exchange on the latest discoveries in plant sciences.
For more than 200 years, plant research has been a key research area at the University of Bonn, both at the basic level and as an applied science in agriculture. Plant research in Bonn is connected with names like Julius von Sachs, Wilhelm Pfeffer, Robert Caspary and of course Eduard Strasburger, who all worked in Bonn and set footprints that we still see today. Drawing on the spirit of translational research that has been established in Bonn for two centuries, the organizing committee put together a conference program that emphasizes the importance of Plant Sciences for a Sustainable Future in 8 plenary talks, 21 symposia and a number of workshops. Together with my colleagues, I would be thrilled if you take the opportunity to participate in this in-person meeting and actively engage in presenting and discussing current work
and ideas in Bonn. The City of Bonn welcomes you at the birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven on the Rhine, a city with plenty of history and today a forward-looking, colorful, and charming international location.
See for yourself what variety is offered to you here both in science and beyond!
Prof. Dr. Andreas Meyer

No sustainability without plants and plant science

DBG's president Prof. Dr. Karl-Josef Dietz emphasized the importance of plant science for basic needs of humankind and our society. There is "no sustainability without plants", he states in his welcome address on the opening of the International Plant Science Conference, Botanikertagung, in Rostock, on 16th September, which was attended by more than 420 participants from 27 countries. “If grown under environmentally balanced conditions, plants are the most sustainable production system on earth.” Moreover, plant science can contribute to 8 out of the 17 sustainable development goals (called SDGs) of the United Nations. For example, weather and stress-resistant crop plants are needed to reach the goal of zero hunger, or plants cleaning toxins out of water, or plants for sustainable biomass production, etc. This dependency stresses how important plant science is for our future.

Flyer Botanikertagung 2019 for download (pdf)

Dear Colleagues,

the Botanikertagung is the largest and most well-known conference on plant sciences in the German speaking countries. It is the essential element of the plant science scene and community and is put forward by the DBG every other year. The conference in Rostock provides a wide scientific program reflecting the huge diversity of plant science related research topics in our scientific Society. The motto of the meeting 2019 ‘Plant life along gradients’ indicates that plants have to cope with a number of different external and internal gradients for survival. Topics of 8 plenary lectures and 21 symposia range from single to multicellular photosynthetic active organisms, from basic to applied science, and from molecular-biochemical to ecological research.

The Rostock scientific committee welcomes all plant scientists!

A document now lists sessions' topics and provides further details of the International Plant Science Conference Botanikertagung in Rostock, Germany, 2019.
