[会议背景介绍]

国际小麦大会是国际知名度最高、学术影响最大的小麦学术盛会,由国际小麦遗传会议(International Wheat Genetics Symposium,IWGS)和国际小麦会议(International Wheat Conference,IWC)合并而成。国际小麦遗传会议以基因组学和遗传学为主,兼顾育种等内容,每5年一次,到2017年已举办了13届,2017年的参会人数近800人。国际小麦会议以育种和栽培生理为主,兼顾遗传学和种质资源等,每5年一次,到2015年已举办了9届,参会人数也已近700人。我国仅于1993年,李振声院士在北京组织了第八届国际小麦遗传会议。两个小麦会议均为全球范围内小麦相关领域最具影响力和知名度的大会,引领国际小麦科技前沿,交流最新的科技成果和方法技术,为中外小麦科技工作者架起来了合作交流的桥梁。

第一届国际小麦大会将于2019年7月21日-26日在加拿大Saskatoon举办,Saskatoon是该地区的文化和经济中心,位于加拿大小麦生产的中心。大会将从小麦研究的多个领域进行学术交流,包括小麦多样性、进化和遗传资源,小麦及其亲缘种属的结构和功能基因组学,品种改良-育种、生理等新技术,小麦生产体系-环境、可持续性和管理,产量保障-抗生物和非生物胁迫,小麦应用-功能、营养、安全与人体健康等。届时100多位国际知名专家学者将参会,并在网站和社交媒体直播会议进展。同时,墙报交流、田间考察、文化和社交活动等将为这次大会增辉添彩。

[征文范围及要求]

The Local and International Organizing Committees cordially invite you to participate in the 1st International Wheat Congress with an oral or poster presentation. Posters and presentations will be categorized into one of six themes:

Wheat Diversity, Evolution, and Genetic Resources

Structural and Functional Genomics of Wheat and Wheat Relatives

Wheat Improvement: Breeding, Physiology, and Enabling technologies

Wheat Production Systems: Environment, Sustainability, and Management

Protecting Yield: Resistance to Biotic and Abiotic Stresses

Wheat Uses: Functionality, Nutrition, Safety and Human Health.

Authors are encouraged to select the most appropriate category for their abstract. Two poster sessions will be held during the Congress, allowing ample time for interaction with authors.

All submissions will be organized by the International Organizing Committee and following blind peer-review, authors will be notified of acceptance as either an oral or poster presentation. Authors will be notified by end of March, 2019. In the unlikely event that an author does not receive notification, please contact the Congress Secretariat immediately.

Please note that we have to limit the number of submissions per registered participant to maximum one oral contribution and one poster contribution.

One of the guiding principles of the Local and International Organizing Committees is to promote gender, geographic and ethnic diversity of speakers, and to facilitate the development of students, early career scientists, and scientists from developing countries. We encourage authors to select the most appropriate category. Students are especially encouraged to consider submitting an abstract, and will have the opportunity to compete for Symposium awards.
