1st Announcement of the 2nd International Wheat Congress

September 11–14, 2022, China

Future Wheat: Resilience and Sustainability

The International Wheat Congress (IWC) was merged from two original wheat international conferences – the International Wheat Genetics Symposium and the International Wheat Conference. IWC is a biennial event and the 1st IWC was held in July 2019 in Saskatoon, Canada. The 2nd IWC was planned for 2021 in Beijing, but was delayed to 2022 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The second IWC, jointly hosted by the Crop Science Society of China (CSSC) and the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) under the supervision of the International Organizing Committee. The theme of the 2nd IWC is “Resilience and Sustainability” and will provide excellent opportunities for participants from around the world to share the latest progress and to develop recommendations for future wheat in terms of research, technology, and transfer. A hybrid form of on-site lectures and online broadcast will be adopted.
