We will welcome all delegates with a wonderful opening talk followed by a welcome cocktail. Craft beer with local palm ingredients was brewed specially for the event and launched on this occasion. Early delegates will be able to taste it for an ahead start to the VII World Palm Symposium in Brazil!
The program is organized around three thematic days. Each day will start with parallel sections (symposium sections proposals are welcome until January 2020), progress with a relevant talk on state-of-the-art research on the theme and close with a poster section happy-hour. Parallel meetings from Palm Phylogeny Group, Palm Functional Traits Group, and IUCN Palm Specialist Group are also planned to take place during the conference.
Besides of the three-day conference, we will offer courses before the meeting and field trips after. And of course, organize a conference dinner party in the Brazilian style on the last day of the scientific program!
Keep tuned on our website and updates on social media.
