ISSS 2017

Welcome ISSS 2017!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee for the 12th Triennial International Society for Seed Science (ISSS), we invite you to join our 2017 meeting being held in Monterey, CA USA on 10-14 September, 2017.

This meeting is being held in the U.S. for the first time since 1989 and will bring the top international seed scientists to interact with the U.S. and Californian seed industry. The International Society for Seed Science (ISSS) is a professional organization of seed scientists, committed to fostering and promoting research, education and communication in the scientific understanding of seeds, in all aspects, pure and applied, from molecular biology to ecology.

The triennial ISSS conference aims to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas on seed science and the development of new scientific collaborations. It encompasses the latest research progress in key areas, including: seed development, dormancy, germination, stress tolerance, germplasm preservation, seed ecology, and seed biotechnology to improve seed quality.

ISSS 2017 meeting highlights: • Four days of oral presentations, themed sessions of invited talks by domestic and international professionals from the public sector and industry to discuss the latest developments in seed science • Invited speakers and contributed oral and poster sessions • Evening Opening Reception • Evening Gala Banquet • Arranged tours and visits to agricultural companies and seed production facilities in the Salinas Valley region.

The Conference is being held at the iconic Monterey Plaza Hotel, located on beachfront property along Monterey Bay’s historic Cannery Row.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
