XIX Brazilian Congress of Plant Physiology

Welcome

Dear Colleagues,
Welcome to the XIX Brazilian Congress of Plant Physiology – Plant Physiology at the FRONTIERS: from optimal to stress conditions! 
The XIX Brazilian Congress of Plant Physiology (in portuguese, Congresso Brasileiro de Fisiologia Vegetal – CBFV 2024) will be held at the Universidade Federal de Viçosa (UFV), in Viçosa, Minas Gerais State – Brazil from October 07th to 11th 2024, in the Academic-Cultural Space Fernando Sabino – UFV. 
The purpose of the biennial Congress (CBFV 2024) is to provide a unique international forum for junior and senior academic researchers, professors, post and undergraduate students, and professionals who specialize in different fields of Plant Physiology, and others interested in the area.
This exciting Congress will facilitate the exchange of research results and ideas, bringing up-to-date and emerging concepts to the forefront. By offering about 25 presentations from worldwide recognized scientists coupled with two poster sessions and two round tables, this event will illustrate the dynamism and excellence of research in a field that is a major challenge for plant biology and agronomy, in the context of climate change.
Following an initiative made by different plant physiologists from different regions of Brazil and supported by the Brazilian Society of Plant Physiology (https://www.sbfv.org.br/), this face-to-face meeting has occurred since 1987. It also allows direct and close interaction between researchers and students, a differentiating factor that must exist in such events. 
It will be an excellent opportunity for both researchers and postgraduate and undergraduate students to update their current knowledge while simultaneously interacting with scientists who are producing knowledge and modifying the vision and concepts in the area. Despite being a national event, the CBFV 2024 has an international reach and is therefore held entirely in English.
The CBFV will feature 25 lectures by renowned plant physiology researchers from Brazil and abroad, invited due to their excellent work on innovative and disruptive topics. This five-day meeting will consist of 6 thematic conference sections, in addition to two poster sessions, awards, and social activities at the opening and closing of our event.
To allow timely registration and reduce the impact of the cost of participating in the event, we inform you that all registrations made until June 30, 2024, can be paid at reduced fees (especially for members supporting the Brazilian Society of Plant Physiology).
We count on your membership and participation to maintain this event as a high point for meeting and discussion of the plant physiology community in Brazil.
On behalf of the members of the Local Organizing Committee and the Brazilian Society of Plant Physiology we warmly invite you to Brazilian Congress of Plant Physiology 2024.
We look forward to seeing you all in person in Viçosa – MG, Brazil!
