The International Symposiums on Auxins and Cytokinins in Plant Development. In Prague, Czech Republic, since 1972.


Dear colleagues.

We would like to cordially invite you to the regular Auxins and Cytokinins in Plant Development Symposium (ACPD 2023), which will be held in Prague from 25–29 June 2023. ACPD 2023 will be the tenth in a row, and for 2023 we have decided to emphasize the role of these two key phytohormones in plant response to ever-changing environmental conditions. We look forward to seeing you again.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee

The Institute of Experimental Botany of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic has a long tradition of organizing conferences dealing with plant growth substances. Four international symposia were held in the baroque chateau of Liblice near Prague, and another five times we gathered for the ACPD – “Auxins and Cytokinins in Plant Development” – meeting in the city of Prague.

What is our formula for a successful meeting?

A focused topic, a reasonable number of participants, and an idyllic setting seem to be the ingredients for the success of previous symposia. In addition to the scientific program, there was ample opportunity for in-depth discussions with colleagues and friends in charming historical surroundings. We will try to maintain the same format at ACPD 2023.
