About Cycad 2015

The 10th International Conference on Cycad Biology will be held in Medellín, Colombia, from August 16th-21st, 2015. The conference venue will be at a Hotel (to be determined soon) in the safe and prestigious El Poblado neighborhood. Conference pricing and registration details will be published before the end of 2014.

The conference is held every three years, bringing together scientists, students, and dedicated enthusiasts to present recent findings about this remarkable group of plants. The main themes include Conservation, Ecology, Morphology and Anatomy, Genetics and Genomics, Taxonomy and Phylogeny, Economic Botany, Horticulture, Toxicology, and Information Management. The IUCN’s Cycad Specialist Group also holds its regular meeting at this conference. Every International Conference on Cycad Biology results in the publication of a Proceedings volume in which conference presenters can publish papers on their presentation topics.
