Better communication and sharing of the ideas among scientists and stakeholders are critical to achieve the goal of global food security. This conference will provide a platform for scientists to interact with each other, present their work and discuss different aspects on drought, crop physiology, genomics, biotechnology, Integrated breeding for crop improvement.
This conference will be organized under well-structured technical sessions that will include invited lectures by eminent speakers. A poster session will also be arranged to encourage participation of young researchers in the conference.
The ID-V conference Inaugural session will start in the evening of Feb 21, 2017 (around 17:00 hrs) and the conference would conclude in the evening of Feb 25, 2017 (around 17:00 hrs) and the parallel workshops would be held from 10:00-16:00 hrs on Feb 21, 2017.
We suggest all the conference delegates to reach Hyderabad by the evening / night of Feb 20 or in the morning of Feb 21, 2017. Please arrange your tickets and book your accommodation as early as possible.
