Earlier this year it was announced that due to the pandemic the next International Botanical Congress will be delayed one year and held in Madrid, Spain, in July 2024. The dates for the rescheduled Botanical Congress are as follows:
- Nomenclature Section, July 15-19, 2024
- Congress, July 21-27, 2024
The officers of the IBC Organizing Committee are Gonzalo Nieto Feliner (President), Juan Carlos Moreno (Vice-President) and Marcial Escudero (General Secretary). The organizing team has been working hard to form the necessary planning committees, hire the conference venue and conference management team, and prepare a website to provide details on the upcoming Congress. The Congress website is now live and additional details about the Congress will be added as they become available (https://ibcmadrid2024.com/). Information about the members of the Organizing Committee, Scientific Program Committee, and Advisory Committee can be found on the website.
The organizers look forward to welcoming everyone to Madrid in July, 2024!
