Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Europe
Date: May 21 - 22, 2019
Venue: Postilion Convention Centre WTC Rotterdam, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Global Engage is pleased to announce the 7th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: Europe, taking place 21st-22nd May 2019, in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. This event is part of our widely-regarded Plant Genomics Series which includes an Asian and US meeting each year.
Attracting over 300 experts working in all areas of plant science, this event will examine the latest in gene editing methods for plant genomics research. CRISPR/Cas9 case studies and the very best strategies for plant genome engineering will be presented by industry leaders, experts, and pioneering academics at the forefront of plant research. Developments in gene editing, NGS, and omic technologies will all be explored for crop trait development, disease resistance, epigenetics, plant breeding, and more. Tracks dedicated to plant & soil microbiomes, and the importance of plant phenotyping in the context of bioinformatics challenges, will encourage a holistic approach to plant research; the former will focus on identifying microbes to enhance crop productivity & disease resistance, while the latter will showcase the best tools for overcoming bioinformatics bottlenecks, applicable to plant research across the board. We will also be looking to examine the impact of the ECJ's latest interpretation of GMO regulations, and what this means for the future of gene editing research, addressing issues such as how to navigate the new legislation, and considering what alternative strategies & technologies there might be for progressing plant genomics.

• A non-stop high-speed train runs between Rotterdam and Schiphol (Amsterdam airport) every 20 minutes. The journey time is 20 minutes. Cost €22 Euros
• Located in the city centre (surrounded by shops, architecture, museums, restaurants and the Port of Rotterdam)
• Walking distance from the international train station
• Rotterdam - The Hague airport with flights to at least 30 international destinations is a short taxi ride
• A large number of parking facilities can be found in the area
• A wide variety of hotels are within walking distance. (Details will be sent to you in your welcome letter when you register)
In the vibrant heart of the Rotterdam metropolis: you cannot get more central than this. Wherever you are in the world, a World Trade Center is a special place. It is an (inter)national corporate community, in a unique building that meets the highest standards. From high-spec office space to high-tech meeting rooms, shops, restaurants and a wide range of additional services.
Poster presentation sessions will take place in breaks and alongside the other breakout sessions of the conference. Your presentation will be displayed in a dedicated area, with the other accepted posters from industry and academic presenters.
We also issue a poster eBook to all attendees with your full abstract in and can share your poster as a PDF after the meeting if you desire (optional).
Whether looking for funding, employment opportunities or simply wanting to share your work with a like-minded and focused group, these are an excellent way to join the heart of this congress.
In order to present a poster at the forum you need to be registered as a delegate. Please note that there is limited space available and poster space is assigned on a first come first served basis (subject to checks and successful registration).
We will require the form (downloadable below) to be submitted by the 19th April to enter the competition. To simply have your poster at the meeting, submissions must be made no later than 3rd May. This is the formal deadline however space is another limiting factor so early application is recommended. Therefore please contact us with any questions you have as soon as possible.
Usually when you go to conferences, maybe 25% of the talks will be relevant, here 100% are relevant.

The plant genomics conference is pretty exciting. I regularly participate in the plant and animal genome conference in San Diego, compared to that this conference is more focused, has a collection of interesting speakers and cutting edge technologies, not only in genomics but also in imaging and genetic engineering. This is a fantastic conference.
Professor & Director of Translation Research, University of Pennsylvania
It was a great cross-section of plant science, it included just about all aspects of plant genomics. It included the whole spectrum of science, from research, through to breeding, production, and applications and just top notch talks throughout the day. We've found this congress to be a great place to stay connected to the thought leaders across the spectrum of applications.
Director, Market Development, Illumina
For me the most interesting part is learning about the new technologies presented here, learning about the genomic research going on because it's an essential part of my studies.
