Welcome

On behalf of the entire organizing committee, we have the honor of inviting you to participate in the XV BRAZILIAN CONGRESS OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY (XV BCPP), which is to be held in the city of Foz do Iguassu, Paraná, Brazil, from September 28th to October 2nd, 2015.

The XV BCPP is being promoted by the Brazilian Society of Plant Physiology (BSPP) with direct support from the Federal Technological University of Paraná (UTFPR), the State University of Western Paraná (UNIOESTE) and the Federal University of the Southern Frontier (UFFS), and other state IES.

The event will bring together participants who work in the areas of Plant Physiology, Plant Biochemistry , Plant Molecular Biology, Botany, Ecology, Plant Nutrition, Irrigation, Post-Harvest and Plant Production among others, and is important due to the opportunity it creates for information and knowledge transfer, creating partnerships and updating areas and sub-areas of expertise.

The 1st Brazilian-Israeli Plant Science Conference (1st BIPSC) will take place in conjunction with the XV BCPP, this binational event, held in partnership with the Israeli Society of Plant Sciences (ISPS), aims to promote the creation and sharing of information and stimulate collaborative studies between Israeli and Brazilian researchers, students and professionals. Other societies from around the world have held binational meetings with great success and it is to our great satisfaction that the ISPS has accepted the invitation to co-host this scientific meeting and we believe that it will be auspicious.

The program of lectures for the XV BCPP and the 1st BIPSC will be common to both events, and will have as its central theme of discussion "Innovation in plant physiology and its social impact". Much is expected of science’s role in the resolution of forthcoming problems and there is the need to discuss what role plant physiology can play in solving the demands of society, such as, how to feed and nourish 10 billion people by 2050. In the same manner, the American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB), at The Plant Biology 2014 meeting, dealt with the theme food security as the 21st century challenge. In addition, the International Association for the Plant Protection Sciences (IAPPS) will be addressing the same theme in 2015, at the 18th International Plant Protection Congress. Likewise, The Global Plant Council, to which the BSPP is linked alongside over 25 other plant science societies, has as its focus to discuss and propose solutions to critical global issues, such as food security, energy availability, climate change, health and well being, sustainability and environmental protection. Accordingly, the opening plenary lecture at our event will be given by the renowned Israeli plant physiologist Professor Jonathan Gressel, and is provisionally titled: "Getting plant physiology out of the lab to put nails in Malthus's coffin".

The city of Foz do Iguassu was chosen as it has one of the best infrastructures in Brazil for receiving tourists and event participants. There are hotels of various categories, restaurants and bars, with access to the city being made easy through a good road network and an international airport. Further to this, the city is home to a number of famous tourist attractions such as: Iguassu Falls, Itaipu Hydroelectric Power Plant and border tourism with Argentina and Paraguay.

Taking as its lead from the XIV BCPP (Poços de Caldas, MG, 2013), the Organizing Committee of the XV BCPP and 1st BIPSC  hope to hold an event to match not only the last, but all other events organized by the BSPP. The scientific program is comprehensive, and includes the participation of renowned speakers from Brazil, Israel and other countries, presentation of work and dissemination of research advances, new technologies and equipments and innovations, contributing to the development of plant physiology and other related areas.

Finally, we are certain that the XV BRAZILIAN CONGRESS OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY and the 1st BRAZILIAN-ISRAELI PLANT SCIENCE CONFERENCE will be an excellent place to share information and knowledge in the area of plant physiology and other related areas.

Sincerely yours,

Gustavo Habermann

About Foz do Iguaçu

     The city of Foz do Iguaçu was chosen as it has one of the best infrastructures in Brazil for receiving tourists and event participants. There are hotels of various categories, restaurants and bars, with access to the city being made easy through a good road network and an international airport. Further to this, the city is home to a number of famous tourist attractions such as: Iguaçu Falls, Itaipu Hydroelectric Power Plant and border tourism with Argentina and Paraguay.

     Foz do Iguaçu is located in the extreme west of Paraná, on the border with Paraguay and Argentina. Its natural borders with these countries are formed by the Paraná river (in the west) and the Iguaçu River (in the south).

     Foz do Iguaçu, having been founded more than 90 years ago, is the fifth largest city in Paraná. Its ethnic and cultural diversity gives the city a cosmopolitan atmosphere rich in diversity. According to data from the IBGE 2010 survey, the city of Foz do Iguaçu has a population of 256 thousand inhabitants and is home to people from 72 of the world 192 nationalities.

     The city provides approximately 20,000 beds/day, distributed among its hotels, inns, guesthouses, hostels, campsites and flats. This, in addition to its broad range of attractions and diverse gastronomic network, means that Foz do Iguaçu offers the essential components to meet the needs of its visitors.

      The city of Foz do Iguaçu (Brazil) is known for its natural wonders including the famous Iguaçu Falls in the Iguaçu National Park, a Unesco Worlds Heritage Site. Just as a comparison, Iguaçu Falls has a water flow three times higher than the famous US/Canadian Niagara Falls. Additionally, the Iguaçu Falls are composed of around 275 falls of various sizes. A footbridge takes the visitors for a close view of the tallest one, The Devil’s Throat, which, at 97 m high, is the tallest in the network of waterfalls. Boat and helicopter rides around the falls are also available.

Visa Information

Citizens of many countries will need to get a visa before they can travel to Brazil.

Please note that if you do require a visa, a Tourist Visa is the appropriate visa type that you should apply for when attending conferences (as per Brazilian Consulate instructions).

The Brazilian visa is usually valid from 3 months up to 5 years depending on Consulate decision. Once a visa is issued, its bearer must enter Brazil within 90 days from the date that it was issued. After entering Brazil, you may stay up to 90 days from the date of entry, unless otherwise noted on the visa.
The Brazilian Visa Application will require that your passport be valid for at least 6 months from the date of travel, and that it has at least two blank visa pages. If your passport does not meet these requirements, please renew or add pages to your passport.
