Participants have been awarded with 16 different conferences, each addressing issues of plant physiology; ranging from DNA, chloroplasts and mitochondria to the plant's physical environment. Each conference will share the latest findings obtained by combining knowledge and techniques of classical plant physiology with modern laboratory and field approaches. In addition to the scientific conferences, 10 mini courses will be also held during the congress.

Between conference breaks there will be opportunities for informal sessions between students, researchers, professors and invited international speakers as a way to facilitate the formation of partnerships. During the congress, participants will be also invited to taste the famous wines, cheeses and cafés of Minas Gerais State.
