About the International Botanical Congress (IBC)

Authorized by the International Association of Botanical and Mycological Societies (IABMS), the International Botanical Congress(IBC) is the largest international conference in the fields related to plant sciences. It is held once every six years in locations that rotate among different countries. The IBC not only brings together scientists from many countries/regions, but also from the many disciplines that encompass the plant sciences, including mycology, ecology, agriculture, horticulture, systematics, etc. The congresses provide valuable opportunities for plant scientist from around the world to share new research findings and ideas, to establish international collaborations and to make new friendships and renew old ones.

The IBC also has the power to amend the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (ICN). The nomenclature section, held prior to the main congress, deals with proposals to alter the Code. Once the Code is in its final form, it becomes a guide for dealing with the scientific names of plants, fungi and a few other groups of organisms.
